Cricketers are known to live the high life. Former West Indies cricketer Tino Best has revealed, in an extract from his upcoming autobiography, that during his playing days he slept with "500 to 650" women around the world.
Calling himself the "black Brad Pitt", the 34-year-old says that he turned into a veritable "playboy" after breaking up with his steady girlfriend.
“I love girls – and girls love me. I reckon I'm the best-looking bald-headed guy in the world. I joke about being the black Brad Pitt! Everywhere I went as a cricketer, I'd talk to girls, date girls and sleep with girls. I reckon I've slept with anywhere between 500 and 650 girls, all around the world.”
“I had a beautiful baby called Tamani with my first love Melissa but things went bad with us. The lads had told me that, once I took wickets for Barbados, she'd come running back for me. I had done just that but she hadn't. When she called it a day, I became a bit of a playboy. Put it this way: I was a man whore,” he said.
Best also has an interesting revelation to make on Chris Gayle, who was in the news last year for having started a strip club in his house back in the Caribbean.
"Now, Chris is good fun but he doesn't indulge in too much bad stuff. He's a good man, Chris. The most fun on a night out is Dwayne Bravo. We complemented each other very well when we played for the West Indies together. I'll give him an award now: he's the best wingman going,” Best has written.
Best last played for West Indies in January 2014. He has 25 Tests and 26 ODIs to his credit.
