Herschelle by Colin Bryden
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Herschelle Gibbs is a man who lives life to the full, both on and off the cricket pitch, and has featured as much on the front pages of South Africa's newspapers as he has on the back. Oozing natural talent and a zest for life, Herschelle has often thrown caution to the wind and has come close to ending his career on more than one occasion. He has faced his share of scandals -the King Commission and his banning, his penchant for wild parties, and the "love child", to mention a few. But time and again he has batted his way out of trouble. Seasoned journalist Colin Bryden traces the life of this sporting genius, from his extraordinary school days, through to his selection for national honours, with all the ups and downs along the way. Coaches, team-mates and friends offer their views on Herschelle. And Herschelle also gives an honest account of himself, including new revelations about the King Commission and his relationship with Hansie Cronje.
