Oscar Pistorius trial: Cricketer Herschelle Gibbs tweets 'lol #neveradullmoment' after autographed bat is used as evidence
The South African cricketer saw the funny side of being caught up in the murder trial
Onlookers could be forgiven for thinking the Oscar Pistorius trial was more akin to a soap opera than determining if someone has been deliberately murdered.
And it would seem one of those onlookers is Herschelle Gibbs, the South African cricketer who played 90 Tests for his country.
This morning he revealed that a cricket bat, a key piece of evidence into the death of Reeva Steenkamp, has his autograph on it.
Judging by his tweet, Gibbs found it humorous to be caught up in the Pistorius trial.
Just saw my signature on the bat used by the accused in oscar trial... lol #neveradullmoment; herschelle gibbs (@hershybru) March 12, 2014
The bat was allegedly used to slam open the toilet door on the night Steenkamp was fatally shot.
Last week, Pistorius pleaded not guilty of murdering Ms Steenkamp, claiming he shot her in a case of mistaken identity thinking she was an intruder.
Prosecutors argue he intentionally shot and killed his girlfriend following a domestic dispute. If convicted of murder he will almost certainly receive a life sentence, with a minimum term of 25 years.
The case continues.
