Herschelle Gibbs batted in the nets for some time.
South Africa on Wednesday announced an unchanged team for their second Pool B match at the ICC Champions Trophy tournament against New Zealand at Centurion on Thursday.

Hashim Amla will once again open the batting with Graeme Smith. Herschelle Gibbs had a batting session at today’s practice and also engaged in running between the wickets.

"Herschelle is making good progress,"commented physiotherapist Brandon Jackson, "and he is on target to make his comeback against England on Sunday."

Gibbs suffered a minor rib and intercostal injury while batting for the Proteas in the warm-up match against the West Indies last Friday.
