The Titans have signed up batsman Herschelle Gibbs to boost their chances ahead of the qualifier against Warriors of the Ram Slam T20 Challenge. He will replace the New Zealand batsman Scott Styris, who is no longer available with the side.

Gibbs, 39, last played in the Big Bash League, Australia's domestic Twenty20 tournament, scoring 156 runs in nine matches at 23.25. Since last playing international cricket for South Africa in May 2010, he has been a global Twenty20 specialist, having played in various leagues around the world, including the Friends Life t20, the Champions League T20 and the Bangladesh Premier League. He played for Cape Cobras in last year's edition of the South African T20 championship.

"We have a big game coming up and I am positive [Gibbs'] experience will come in handy," Titans coach Matthew Maynard said.

The Titans will play Warriors on April 3 in the qualifier, with the winner taking on Lions in the final four days later.

Gibbs will join the side at their training session at Centurion on Saturday morning.
