Gibbs and Kruger released from Protea squad
Cricket news is that top order batsman Herschelle Gibbs and strike bowler Garnett Kruger have been released from the Proteas squad for the final two Castle Tests against New Zealand. This was announced by national selectors convenor Haroon Lorgat on Saturday. SuperSport quotes Lorgat as saying that Herschelle and he had a meeting on Friday, where it was agreed that a break and a fresh start next season would do Gibbs a world of good. Lorgat says Kruger is most unfortunate to have picked up a shoulder strain when he was set to play in the first Test. No replacements will be made for the two released players.
