Gibbs in trouble again

Test cricketer Herschelle Gibbs was on Wednesday found guilty of breaching Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) code of conduct and was severely reprimanded for his behaviour.

Gibbs, opening batsman for the Nashua Cape Cobras, was found to have contravened clause 1.4 regulating players’ on-field conduct, the CSA said in a statement.

Clause 1.4 states that players shall not use crude or abusive language nor make offensive gestures.

Gibbs appeared before CSA disciplinary commissioner advocate Michael Kuper for an incident at a Pro20 match between the Dolphins and the Cobras at Newlands on March 26.

Match referee on the day, Barry Lambson, had complained about Gibbs’s conduct.

“Gibbs was severely reprimanded for his actions when he appeared in Johannesburg today [Wednesday],” the cricket body said.

Gibbs is also facing charges of drunken driving.
He was arrested last week in Sea Point, Cape Town, for allegedly driving under the influence.

He is out on R500 bail and will appear in court on June 27.—Sapa
