If West Indian cricketer Chris Gayle’s tweets are any indication then the left-hander is highly upset over not being paid for his services during the Big Bash League last season. Gayle tweeted “I’m sure Players who used the Cam/Helmet while batting and commentators who did commentary last year BBL has been paid….”

In a string of tweets, the universe boss said, “So make sure when I check my account next week it’s there! I done talk! Slavery Days done with! Pay Me!.” He added, “So make sure when I check my account next week it’s there! I done talk! Slavery Days done with! Pay Me!”

The burly left-handed batsman had earlier ruled himself out of this year’s BBL. He had clarified his intentions on Twitter saying, “Out of the Big Bash League this year, (I) will spend time with family.”

He represented Melbourne Renegades in the 2015-16 BBL edition and created a huge controversy following a controversial on-field exchange with television presenter Mel McLaughlin. When asked for the reason behind his sublime batting during a match against Hobart Hurricanes, Gayle gushed, “I wanted to come and have an interview with you as well. That’s the reason why I’m here, just to see your eyes for the first time. It’s nice so. Hopefully, we can win this game and have a drink after. Don’t blush, baby.”

Cricket Australia Chief James Sutherland used some strong words, “It’s not a nightclub, and one of the things that hasn’t dawned on everyone is it’s actually a workplace. It’s Chris Gayle’s workplace, it’s also Mel McLaughlin’s workplace and those sorts of comments border on harassment and are completely inappropriate in cricket, inappropriate in a workplace.”

“No matter what anyone at Cricket Australia thought at management level, board level, I think you’re on a slippery slope if you start making judgments on players who could or shouldn’t be playing in the Big Bash League or in our domestic competitions.” he added.
