Gary Sober hit six sixes in an over

One of the greatest cricketers, Sir Garfield Sobers of West Indies is the first and the one of only two batsmen who have scored six sixes in an over in a first class match. In 1968, playing as captain of Nottinghamshire against Glamorgan in Swansea, he set the world record of the bowling of Malcolm Nash.

The other record holder is Ravi Shastri of India, who did that later in 1984 playing for Bombay.
