1968. At the scenic St Helen’s Ground, Swansea, Nottinghamshire were on the lookout for quick runs against Glamorgan. And Garry Sobers, the West Indian genius, launched into Malcolm Nash. The result was that famous over that went for 6,6,6,6,6,6.

However, Nash does not regret it. He reflects, “I reckon I get asked about it (the six sixes) if not once a week then at least once a month. It is never, ever far away or out of the limelight. I was just part of history and there was nothing I could do. It was just one over in my life. Would I take it back? Never. I just wish I got paid for it. It would have made me rich.”
