Ian calls for global ban

Australian cricket legend Ian Chappell has called for a worldwide ban on Chris Gayle over his controversial TV interview with Channel 10 journalist Mel McLaughlin during a recent Big Bash League match.

Chappell has asked Cricket Australia (CA) to propose a worldwide contracting ban on the big-hitting West Indian following his widely-criticised sideline interview.

Chappell said CA need to show zero-tolerance towards the “totally inappropriate” behaviour. “I wouldn’t have a problem if Cricket Australia said to the clubs, ‘he’s never to be contracted again in this country’,” Chappell was quoted as saying by the Australian Associated Press.

“And I also wouldn’t have a problem if Cricket Australia said to the ICC, ‘what we’re doing should be worldwide’.

“You’d have to talk to the individual countries then...but I wouldn’t have a problem if it was tabled at an ICC meeting that Cricket Australia said, ‘this is what we’re doing and we would recommend that everybody else do the same’,” he said.

“How are you going to stop it otherwise?” Chappell questioned.
