Gayle wins defamation case against Australian publisher

West Indies cricket star Chris Gayle has won his defamation case against an Australian media organization which published reports that the player indecently exposed himself to a woman in a dressing room after a practice session during the 2015 World Cup.

 

A jury in the New South Wales state Supreme Court on Monday found that Fairfax Media had not established that the allegations were substantially true.

 

Gayle denied the allegations when he gave evidence on the first day of the trial last week, saying he sued Fairfax because wanted to clear his name after the claims were published in three newspapers in January 2016. The Cricket World Cup was held in Australia and New Zealand in 2015.
