Johannesburg - Cricket South Africa (CSA) today issued an apology to Herschelle Gibbs for, on 3 December prematurely issuing an inaccurate media release regarding the termination of its contractual relationship with Gibbs.
The following correctly reflects the agreement concluded between CSA and Gibbs:
Following amicable discussions, and in the best interests of South African cricket, CSA and Gibbs have announced that they have agreed to terminate Gibbs’ National Cricketer Contract by mutual consent.
“It has been agreed that this is the best way forward for both parties,” commented CSA CEO Gerald Majola.
“On behalf of CSA I would like to wish Herschelle all the best for his future and to thank him for the contribution he has made to the successes of the Proteas over an extended period of time,” he added.
“Herschelle represented our country for 14 years with distinction and I don’t think any cricket lover will ever forget the magnificent innings he played in the famous 438 game against Australia.”
Gibbs remains eligible for selection for the Proteas, and has requested CSA to issue a “No Objection Certificate” (NOC) to allow him to play in a Twenty20 competition in New Zealand later this month. CSA has agreed to do so.
Gibbs said, “I’d like to thank CSA, my team mates and especially the public for the unbelievable support over the years. The fans have been incredible and they all rock. I look forward to entertaining everyone on the world stage.”
Neither Gibbs nor CSA will comment further on this matter, the content of the agreement concluded between them, being confidential.
