It takes two to create a record....

As Garfield Sobers returned to the pavilion, after his innings in which he smashed six sixes off an over from Malcolm Nash, the latter walked back with him smiling. Later, when a media person asked Sobers what Nash had muttered to him, he clarified, ‘He told me that mine was not the only name that would appear in the record books. His would figure too, alongside”.

So, when we talk about Yuvraj’s record-breaking six sixes, let’s spare a thought and raise a toast for Stuart Broad who also makes it into the record books.

Incidentally, Nash tried to equal his record again in 1977, but fell two runs short, when he conceded 34 runs in an over to Frank Hayes, also at the same ground. (source). Let’s hope that Broad will repeat the feat soon.
