Gibson was born in Buenos Aires.[1] His father, Malcolm Gibson, represented Argentina at the 1979 ICC Trophy.[2] Gibson himself made his senior debut for Argentina at age of 17, at the 1999 South American Championship.[3] The following year, he was selected for the Americas under-19s – a combined team representing the ICC Americas development region – that played in the 2000 Under-19 World Cup in Sri Lanka. He featured in three matches at the World Cup, against Zimbabwe, the West Indies, and Ireland, but scored only 12 runs.[4] Later in the year, Gibson played a single match at the 2000 Americas Cricket Cup, opening the batting with Matias Paterlini against Canada.[5]

In a match against Belize in Division Two of the 2006 ICC Americas Championship, Gibson and Gastón Arizaga put on 137 runs for the opening wicket to help Argentina to a 10-wicket victory, with Gibson's contribution being 40 not out.[6] However, later in the tournament he was also dismissed for a duck against Panama and for a single run against Suriname.[7][8] Gibson returned to the Argentine squad for Division One later in the year, but made only two appearances, against Canada and the Cayman Islands. The following year, he was selected in the team for the 2007 World Cricket League Division Three tournament in Australia. He appeared in three matches, against Fiji, the Cayman Islands, and Uganda, but had little success.[3] At the 2010 WCL Division Four event, played in Italy, Gibson played in only two matches. He was bowled by Usman Shuja for a golden duck against the United States,[9] but against the Cayman Islands was his team's top-scorer, making 45 runs from 116 balls before being retired out for his slowing scoring rate.[10] Gibson's final appearance for Argentina came in March 2013, in a friendly against England's Marylebone Cricket Club.[3]
