Along with Gibbs, Paul Adams, Roger Telemachus, Andre Nel, Justin Kemp and Carig Smith were involved in it too.
All the players were seriously reprimanded and were imposed a fine of Rs 10,000. This incident completed a forgettable 12 months for Gibbs, who was also suspended for going to a nightclub on the eve of an ODI against Australia in 2000.
Even after his retirement, his brush with controversies has not ended. Recently, he was involved in a Twitter spat with R Ashwin. The Indian off-spinner accused Gibbs of being a part of the match-fixing scandal.
Gibbs retired from all forms of cricket in 2010. In ODIs he scored 8,094 runs in 248 matches at an average of 36.13.
