Herschelle Gibbs: A Brief Biography

Herschelle Gibbs Biography


Herschelle Gibbs is a South African cricketer who was known for his top-class fielding and aggressive batting skills. Born on the 23rd of February, 1974, Gibbs was a hard-hitting opening batsman who played over 248 ODIs and 90 test matches for South Africa.

He is the first player to hit six sixes in an over in an ODI game. Gibbs added this record to his name against Netherlands in the 2007 World Cup.


Background


Gibbs was a gifted sportsman as he featured in his school team for rugby, cricket and soccer. In his early days, Gibbs made a mark by being a good fielder. His ability to hit the stump consistently made him a regular member in the team.


Gibbs played for Western Province from 1990-2004. In county cricket he featured for Yorkshire and was known as someone who can hammer the ball to all parts of the ground with ease. He did not know something called “defence.”


Debut

Gibbs made his international debut at the age of 22 against Kenya. He scored 17 runs off 21 balls by batting at number four and the Proteas went on to win the match by a whooping 202 runs.

He did not perform with the bat significantly until 1999 when he scored his first century against West Indies. All this while, Gibbs was making diving stops and saving crucial runs. Gibbs had a good time on the field in 1999 having scored 211 against New Zealand and improving as a fielder.


Rise To Glory

Herschelle Gibbs played a breathtaking innings against Australia by scoring 175 off 111 deliveries when the Proteas were chasing 434. This was the pinnacle of his career.

He has scored two double hundreds in Test matches. One was 211 off 468 balls against New Zealand and the being 228 off 240 against Pakistan.

Gibbs is only the third player to score three consecutive hundreds in ODIs. He scored 116, 116 and 153* in three games against Kenya, India and Bangladesh respectively. He missed a fourth consecutive hundred by just 3 runs as he finished on 97*.


Club Career

The 43-year old has represented the Perth Scorchers in the Big bash and scored 302 runs in 7 matches to take his team to the final in the 2011/12 season.

In the 2009 season of the IPL, Gibbs played a crucial knock of 53 runs for the Deccan Chargers to help them win the title.

Low Points

The lowest point of his career was when Gibbs was banned for six months on charges of match-fixing along with Hansie Cronje. Of all things, Gibbs is infamous for dropping a catch in the 1999 World Cup against Australia.

Steve Waugh got a second chance and went on to score 120 as the Proteas eventually lost the World cup.


Retirement

Gibbs bid adieu to international cricket on the 10th of May, 2010 having played his last T20 against Pakistan. He was out for a mere three runs and Pakistan won the game by 11 runs.

The 43-year old continues to play franchise cricket across the world. Gibbs career stats show him amassing over 14200 international runs at an average of 38.
