'It seems like guys have been hampered' - Gibson

Sangfroid 2019-06-20 14:49:51 

Like captain Faf du Plessis, Gibson largely laid the blame for their poor World Cup campaign at the feet of South Africa' batsmen - particularly those players in the top order with substantial experience. Hashim Amla has produced a high score of 55 across the five games so far, David Miller has not breached 40 in three innings, and du Plessis himself has also made only one half-century.

This guy is so clueless. Wow.

"There are guys who are playing their last [World Cup], and I would have thought that they'd want to go out on a good note. The top and bottom of it is that 30s, 40s and the odd 50 aren't going to win you a World Cup. Kane showed how to make a match-winning hundred in tough conditions."

I'm not a fan of how Gibson is absolving himself of the current situation but what is untruthful in those statements that you've highlighted ?

No one plays professional sport to fail...he needs to look at himself.

I would have thought that they'd want to go out on a good note.

When the team wins, its is because he is a genius; when they lose its because the players are inept.

Just wait for his grand pronouncement:

"Not Sure If They Have Played Their Last Game For South Africa"

Such a fraud!

Yeah I guess I can see where you're coming from.

Not a big fan of how he's putting certain guys down in the media tbh.Not good for team morale in general.

Gibson like he doing a Mourinho and looking to get fired so he can draw some cash. Or maybe he suggesting dat he din really want dem guys in de team

Why cant he get senior members of any team to perform when it really matters? were not for IPL exposure and coaching WI would not have won T20 world cups

English proverb 'A bad workman always quarrels with his tools'

Dressing room environment can result in players non performance in the middle and vice versa
