Johannesburg : South Africa cricketer Herschelle Gibbs has defended his controversial autobiography, calling the description of drinking, drugs and sexual antics on cricket tours an "open and honest account" of his 14 years with the national team.


Gibbs tells The Associated Press on Monday he has not "targeted" any of his teammates in his book "To The Point," which also says current captain Graeme Smith was "simply too powerful" and was part of a "clique" of senior players that included Jacques Kallis, Mark Boucher and AB de Villiers.

Smith, who is leading South Africa in an ongoing series against Pakistan , said on Sunday the players were "very disappointed" with the book.Gibbs says he expected criticism, but "hopefully people can respect the honesty."AP
