Herschelle Gibbs may quit International Cricket

South African opening batsman Herschelle Gibbs may quit International Cricket after being left out of the ODI team against England, but will remain available for his IPL side the Deccan Chargers.

Herschelle Gibbs Quoting an unnamed basis close to Gibbs, Afrikaans daily 'Beeld' said Gibbs' conclusion had "nothing to do with the fact that he has been omitted from the national side for the umpteenth time."

"Although he still has to weigh up a few choices, Gibbs feels that he has had enough after such a long career," the source was quoted as saying.

Neither Gibbs nor his manager Donne Commins have commented on the report.

South African coach Mickey Arthur too has without any knowledge of the development, remaining adamant that Gibbs was part of his plan for the 2011 World Cup in South Asia.

Gibbs has had an exciting international career of 13 years, often at the centre of controversies ranging from match-fixing to stuff abuse. However, he is still regarded as one of the best opening batsmen in the world.

But Gibbs' batting has been contradictory in recent years, with his last one-day century coming in April this year against Australia in Port Elizabeth.
