Herschelle Gibbs was one of the most charming cricketers of South Africa. He revealed his various connections with the girls in his autobiography ‘To The Point’. Recalling one such incident, Herschelle Gibbs wrote,

“I just knew I was going to get a century. Perhaps the girl lying in bed beside me had inspired me. She worked at the hotel, where I had befriended her. I guess she was my lucky charm – she certainly was when it came to my batting. I just wish her powers had extended to my fielding and the bladdy dropped catch.”
