Chris Gayle Wins Defamation Case Against Fairfax Media
West Indies cricketer Chris Gayle has won his defamation case against Fairfax media – one of the largest media companies in Australia and New Zealand.
Fairfax media had published reports claiming that the prolific batsman exposed himself to a female massage therapist in 2015.
According to media outlets in Australia, on Monday a jury in the New South Wales state Supreme Court concluded that Fairfax Media failed to prove that the allegations against Gayle were true.
Gayle denied the charges from day one and during a court hearing, the cricketer’s close friend – Donovan Miller told the court that Gayle became fearful in the presence women because of the allegations.
Following the trial, Gayle told reporters:
“It was very emotional for me to be criticised in such a manner.”
“This was the first time I had been in a court as well. I’m glad the public actually get a chance to read into things and they can hear what actually transpired.”
When one reporter asked if the verdict was better than scoring a century, Gayle promptly replied: “Yes, definitely.”
