Gibbs returns to one-day squad


Herschelle Gibbs, the South African batsman, has been declared fit and will be part of the one-day squad for the second and third One-day International matches against New Zealand in Port Elizabeth and Cape Town on Friday and Sunday.

Gibbs had hurt his knee during the second Test in Centurion, which South Africa won by an innings and 59 runs to wrap the series 2-0. Dale Steyn took 20 wickets for the Proteas in the series.

He missed the Twenty20 international and the first one-dayer in Durban, which South Africa won off the last ball to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Shane Jabaar (the team physiotherapist) told me that Herschelle came through his fitness test very well and could have played as early as today (Wednesday),� Mickey Arthur, the South African coach, said.

Morne van Wyk, who was called up as cover for Gibbs, was released from the squad and would play for the Eagles in their Supersport Series match against the Warriors in Bloemfontein on Thursday (today).
