KINGSTON – Leading regional academic Sir Hilary Beckles has thrown his support behind embattled West Indies batsman Chris Gayle and has encouraged the Caribbean to do the same.

Gayle has found himself embroiled in a sexism row following a controversial interview with Australian reporter Mel McLaughlin, during a game in the Big Bash League recently.

Sir Hilary, the Vice-chancellor of the University of the West Indies, said he believed Gayle had made a genuine mistake and should be forgiven.

“I take his words for what he said, that he meant no offence. I take his word for that. I think he has given his apology,” Sir Hilary told the Gleaner newspaper here. (CMC)
