Herschelle Gibbs' Contract as South African Cricketer Canceled After Book

Cricket South Africa said it canceled the national contract of Herschelle Gibbs by mutual agreement following the release last month of the cricketer’s autobiography of his 14 years representing the country.

“It has been decided that this is the best way forward for both parties,” Cricket SA said in an e-mailed statement today. Confidentiality agreements were signed and Cricket SA and Gibbs won’t comment further on the matter, the sport body said.
