List of international cricket five-wicket hauls by Lance Gibbs

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gibbs took two pairs of five-wicket hauls, three years apart, at Old Trafford.

In cricket, a five-wicket haul (also known as a "fifer"[1]) refers to a bowler taking five or more wickets in a single Innings. This is regarded as a notable achievement,[2] and as of August 2015 only 43 bowlers have taken 15 or more five-wicket hauls at the international level.[3] Lance Gibbs is a former Test and One Day International (ODI) cricketer who represented the West Indies cricket team. A right-arm spin bowler, Gibbs made his Test debut against Pakistan at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain in February 1958.[4] He made his last Test appearance in February 1976, by which point he had taken a total of 309 wickets.[5] As of August 2015, he is 26th in the list of most Test cricket wickets taken overall.[6] With 18 five-wicket hauls, he ranks equal twenty-seventh among bowlers overall, and fourth in the equivalent list for West Indies, behind Curtly Ambrose, Courtney Walsh and Malcolm Marshall.[a][3][7]

Gibbs' first five-wicket haul came a month after his debut, when he took 5 wickets for 80 runs against Pakistan in the fourth Test of the latter's 1957–58 tour of the West Indies.[8] His best bowling figures are 8 for 38 which he took in the third innings of the third Test between the West Indies and India at the Kensington Oval in Barbados.[9] Described by Cecil Kippins as "the greatest ever bowling spell in Test Cricket", Gibbs took the eight wickets in a sixteen-over spell, conceding six runs.[10] Although Gibbs played ODI cricket, he made just three appearances, during which his best bowling figures were 1 for 12.[5]
