Profile

Herschelle Gibbs, who once owned up, with perverse pride, to never having read a book, has essayed enough incendiary innings to fill a fat volume and, in the field, cut down many a batsman with all the electric grace of an enraged poet. Though he might not bother with many more words than yes, no, wait, and mine, Gibbs inspires superlatives from those who marvel at his appetite for the spectacular. Ordinary he is not.

Timeline
    • November 27, 1996
      Eden debut
      • Herschelle Gibbs enters first-class cricket at the age of 16 and makes his Test debut six years later in front of 70,000 at Eden Gardens. But the match is best remembered for the feats of his fellow debutant, Lance Klusener.
    • January 30, 1999
      Three figures at last
      • Scores his first international century, in an ODI against West Indies in Port Elizabeth. In March, he smashes an unbeaten 211 in Christchurch, his maiden Test century.
    • June 13, 1999
      You just dropped the World Cup, son
      • Gibbs pays for his overconfidence in a Super Eights World Cup match against Australia at Headingley. Steve Waugh flicks it straight to him at midwicket, where in his rush to celebrate with a skyward hurl, he drops the ball. It costs South Africa the match as Waugh, then on 56, goes on to score 120 and wins the match for Australia.
