The much awaited interrogation of South African batsman Herschelle Gibbs by Indian police about the match fixing scandal will take place on Thursday.

Gibbs would leave for India with his lawyer, who will be present during the questioning by Delhi police commissioner K K Paul. He will then join his team-mates for the ICC Champions Trophy in which they face New Zeland in their first match on October 16.

"Gibbs will be in New Delhi on October 12 and it's expected that he would be questioned on Thursday", a Cricket South Africa official said.

"Gibbs will join his team-mates in Mumbai on October 13, two days before they play their first match against New Zealand", the official said.

Delhi police said that Gibbs, will be quizzed on "all aspects" of his role in the 2000 match-fixing case.

"Gibbs will be asked as to who had contacted him, what was the information sought and who all were involved in the entire match-fixing episode," police sources said.

Gibbs skipped tours of India in the past fearing detention ever since the controversy broke out and Delhi Police has been waiting to probe him.

Gibbs and teammate Nicky Boje were named in the probe by Delhi Police who blew the lid on the scandal after tapping a phone conversation of late Hansie Cronje.

Gibbs has already served a six-month ban slapped by South African cricket authorities while Boje has denied any involvement. Both of them had answered a detailed questionnaire put to them by Delhi police in 2004.
