Gary Sobers hit six sixes off a Malcolm Nash over. The first time such a feat had been achieved in first class cricket.

The Glamorgan fielder who fell backwards over the boundary with the 5th ball of the over was a boyfriend of mine :wub:

So sorry you didn't quite make your Golden Anniversary, Graham, but I'm sure you have lots of memories of the golden years you and Sandy did have together xx

Just reading about Gary Sobers one of the best all rounders, apparently he was born with an extra finger on each hand and cut them off himself when he was still a young boy.

I think it was claimed that the ball sold at auction wasn't even the same make as the one used in the match.
