“Completely unnecessary of the @BCCI to bring their political agenda with Pakistan into the equation and trying to prevent me playing in the @kpl_20. Also threatening me (by) saying they won’t allow me entry into India for any cricket related work. Ludicrous,” he tweeted.
Herschelle Gibbs is one of the most celebrated South African cricketers of all time. He was the first player to hit six sixes in an over and was the only cricketer to do so before his record was equalled by India’s Yuvraj Singh and West Indies’ Kieron Pollard. The accusation that Herschelle Gibbs has made is a big one and will probably be investigated in detail. However, if he is proven wrong, the South African might have to pay severe consequences.
