Cricketers often hog all the limelight and are considered to be the demigods by the fans. With this immense popularity comes a monumental responsibility. They are always under scrutiny and are expected to maintain a certain decorum in society. Their behaviour, words, actions – everything is under keen watch.
Cricketers like Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul had to bear the brunt of the anger of people just because they made some misogynistic comments on a talk show. They faced severe backlash and paid a hefty price for their wrong-doings. While this was considered to be extremely offensive, some of the cricketers completely rocked the fraternity with s*x scandals and tarnished the image of the game.
Here are five such cricketers involved in s*x scandals:
1. Chris Gayle
This incident involving Chris Gayle is from the IPL archives. During the time when the league was popular for its party culture, Gayle shared some intimate moments with Bollywood actress Sherlyn Chopra. After finding her at a bar, the Windies cricketer took an instant liking for the actress. Gayle was spotted ‘dirty dancing’ with Sherlyn and also removed his shirt at one point in time.
Apparently, Gayle also asked Sherlyn out for a date and there was a lot brewing up between these two. She said that she had fun ‘dirty dancing’ with the cricketer and added that she liked his physique and the way he bats. However, neither of them talked much about what really happened later and there are allegations that it was a one-night stand. Chris Gayle also made the headlines when he made vulgar comments on the anchors in CPL 2014 and BBL 2017-18.
