Herschelle Gibbs started his cricket career at the age of 16 years. His debut test match was in Eden Gardens. At the crease, Gibbs can be quite invincible. There is no shot beyond his compass, while Test-match opening has not tempered his desire for explosive entertainment. His trademark is the lofted extra-cover drive, hit inside-out with the certainty of a square cut. His most famous innings came in a record-breaking one-day contest against Australia at Johannesburg when South Africa chased down an improbable 434 in 49.5 overs. Gibbs' contribution was a 111-ball 175 to power the hosts to a 3-2 series win in perhaps the greatest cracker of all.
