Gulu's Blog: Gibbs and the 'hard arsed' Delhi Police.

2006 Oct 10 by DreamCricket

Has a single convicted match-fixer spent a single day in jail? So what is Gibbs Sr. scared about? Is it a case of guilty conscience? We will soon find out.

Herschelle Gibbs has finally decided to bite the bullet and make another trip to India after a lapse of six years.

Lying in wait for him are the investigative term of the Delhi Police who unearthed the match fixing scandal involving the late South African captain Hansie Cronje and others including Gibbs and Nicky Boje.

Surprisingly, left-arm spinner Boje was not part of the South African team for the Champions. He too has been playing hooky since that now-infamous tour of 2000.

They both received light sentences from the South African authorities while the Delhi Police are keen on merely questioning the duo.

That’s why its so strange that Gibbs’ advisors have been feeding him with so much information. For Gibbs to refer to the Delhi Police “'hard arses'” for insisting on meeting him was totally uncalled for. Besides, he will have his two lawyers to hold his hand right through.

A few years ago his father said he did not want his son to rot in an Indian prison! Has a single convicted match-fixer spent a single day in jail? So what is Gibbs Sr. scared about? Is it a case of guilty conscience? We will soon find out.
