Description:

There are many ways to describe South African Cricket star Herschelle Herman Gibbs. Of those, ‘the most talented sportsman of his generation’ is the most accurate. Famous as an explosive batsman whose instinctive stroke-making is able to dismantle any bowling attack, whether he is opening an innings or batting down the order, Gibbs could have chosen any number of sports in which to make his name. At high school he was regarded as the best rugby flyhalf in the land and was described by legend Naas Botha as the next Springbok flyhalf. He was, it is said, even better at football: according to those he played with as a junior, Gibbs would have made it to the top European football leagues. But Herschelle chose cricket. Given some of the other off-field decisions that have coloured his controversial life, selecting cricket proved an astute one, affording him a long and eventful career and so allowing the sport’s fans all over the world to witness two decades of highly entertaining cricket. Given his extraordinary batting and fielding abilities, Herschelle Gibbs alone has always been worth the price of a ticket. To the point is his no-holds-barred autobiography.
