‘Don’t Blush, Baby’ — Cricket Bro Tries To Pick Up Smokeshow Reporter On-Air, Fails [VIDEO]

Melbourne Renegades (Australia) star Chris Gayle is in a little bit of hot water.

Following the Renegades’ Monday win, Gayle sat down for an interview with Melanie McLaughlin, during which he not-so-casually tried to pick-up the bombshell reporter.

“I get to see your eyes for the first time, it’s nice,” Gayle noted. “Hopefully we can win and go for a drink after.”

In this expert’s opinion, Gayle was fine up until this point. Unfortunately, he felt the urge to also drop a “don’t blush, baby,” in there … which was predictably met with some major shade.

WATCH:

Tough break, dude.

In Gayle’s defense, you DO miss 100 percent of the shots — or whatever it is they do in cricket — you don’t take.
