Cape Town - Former Proteas batsman Herschelle Gibbs made his return to club cricket on Saturday when he played for Pinelands in a Western Province Cricket Association first division B fixture against Hottentots Holland.

According to Club Cricket SA, Gibbs struck a brisk 22, including two sixes, in a successful chase of a modest 121-run target.

Batting at No 3 in the order, Gibbs shared an important half-century partnership with opener Tertius Raubenheimer before being caught at deep extra cover.

Gibbs took to Twitter saying he enjoyed the occasion, and also revealed that he took two catches.

The 43-year-old Gibbs had not played competitive cricket since February 2016, when he represented the Leo Lions in the Masters Champions League.

The hard-hitting right-hander amassed almost 15 000 runs, including 35 centuries, across 90 Tests, 248 ODIs and 23 T20Is between 1996 and 2010. He also played for the St Lucia Zouks in the 2013 Caribbean Premier League.

He played for Avendale Cricket Club and Northerns Goodwood Cricket Club during his formative years.
