It was stated that he exposed his penis and indecently propositioned a woman in a dressing room during the 2015 Cricket World Cup in Sydney.

Gayle denied the allegations, won the defamation case in October 2018. The Jurors felt that Fairfax was motivated by malice.

Fairfax felt that it wasn't a fair trial after Gayle's barrister attacked that credibility of the woman. They felt that the jury should have been discharged. Meanwhile, Gayle also appealed the payout size, wanting an increase. Both appeals were dismissed.
