The Bo-Kaap Phantoms signed batsman Rashard Gibbs at last week’s Cape Premier League player auction.

The Phantoms purchased Gibbs for 600,000 CPL dollars – the tournament’s fictional currency.

Gibbs won the Lenasia Premier League title with the Tasmanian Devils recently. The LPL in Gauteng is the sister tournament of the CPL in the Western Cape.

He is the son of former Proteas batsman Herschelle Gibbs.

The Phantoms also signed Cape Town Cricket Club all-rounder Nicholas Scott and Durbanville Cricket Club wicketkeeper-batsman Carlos Koyana, among others, during the player auction.

The Phantoms had retained batsman Lenert van Wyk and others – and purchased seamer Marvin Williams from the Cape Vikings prior to the auction.
