Gibbs to call it quits?

Johannesburg: South African batsman Herschelle Gibbs is planning to retire from international cricket, a media report in Johannesburg has claimed.

The 35-year-old  was dropped from the Proteas squad for the series against England after also being axed from the Test team almost two years ago.

However, Gibbs will continue to play for Hyderabad Deccan Chargers in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

"I've got some decisions to make in the next few weeks whether to carry on at international level. I'm not in the squad and I'm not sure if I'll get back into the ODI team either," Gibbs told the BBC.

Gibbs played the last of his 90 Tests in January last year against West Indies and he was subsequently left out of the squad for the Test series against Bangladesh and India.

Gibbs has been one of the most prolific batsmen for South Africa and his innings of 175 in the so-called 438 games against Australia, four years ago, is still considered the best in the history of the ODIs.
