Gibbs was excellent in Big bash but is completely out of form here and KRB doesn't have a better replacement for Gibbs.. Jayasuyia's form was not good for a while so didn't quite understand the logic behind this pick.. Now with Russel gone I don't see any hope for them .. at best they can post 150/160 and on a batting track like mirpur the bowlers can't do something extraordinary to defend that total.. They don't have quality fast bowler like Sami.. Fidel Edwards was a good choice but he is not there.. So how do KRB fights back??? They can do it only if Shakib can pull out his Superman performance and that's not gonna happen everyday
Herschelle Gibbs doesnt know how to play in spinners conditions and low tracks. He is still a quality player.
