Sydney - West Indies cricket superstar Chris Gayle is seeking to cash in on a court case win against an Australian media group, promising a tell-all interview - but only if the price is right.

The all-rounder was accused by Fairfax Media, publisher of The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, in a series of stories last year of exposing his penis to a massage therapist and indecently propositioning her. 

But a NSW Supreme Court jury ruled a defamation case in his favour late last month, finding the articles were motivated by malice. 

A hearing on damages will be held at a later date, but Gayle is already offering his story for a starting price of $300 000. 

"I have a very interested (sic) successful story to tell!! It can be an exclusive 60mins interview or y'all just have to wait on my next book!," he tweeted to his 3.75 million Twitter followers on Friday.

"It's about what transpired in court and behind the scenes in Australia, how they went to bigger heads to get me ban... 

"How they want to use me as a scapegoat over an interview - I'll tell you what I do every day after court, believe me, when I break this down to y'all it will be like a movie! No holding back!

"Biding (sic) starts at $300K for this interview! So much to say & I will!" 

Fairfax published the allegations in the wake of an uproar after Gayle attempted to flirt with an Australian presenter on live TV, asking her out for a drink and telling her: "Don't blush, baby."

Speaking after the trial, Gayle said the case had been "very emotional". 

"I'm a good man. I'm not guilty," he said. 

Fairfax has yet to announce whether it will appeal the ruling.
