6 X 6 = 36. Gibbs made history

Well it seemed almost impossible to think of 6 sixes in 1 over in modern day cricket, even if the bowling side is Netherlands. That almost an impossible task was made possible by Hershelle Gibbs of SA. He is a known aggressive player but a bad bad memory of world cup - dropped the catch (cup) of Steve Waugh in 99 and part of the tied semi final of the same world cup. Now he can cheer about a record that no body has done before.
South Africa murdered Netherlands today by scoring 353 for 3 in 40 overs. Kallis scored the 3rd century of the WC. SA looks like a team to watch for in this world cup. They have plenty to prove and are the number 1 team in the world. Good Luck to them.

Herschelle Gibbs smashes a record six sixes in an over

29.1 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Violence! Gibbs charged down the track and hoicked it over long on.

29.2 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Murder! Floated on the leg and middle stump line and Gibbs sends it soaring over long-off.

29.3 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Carnage! Flatter one this time but it makes no difference to Gibbs. He just stands there and delivers. This one also has been sucked over long off

29.4 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Wah Wah! Low full toss and guess where this went Yep. A slap slog and it went over deep midwicket! He is going to go for 6 sixes in this over!

29.5 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Short in length, on the off stump line and Gibbs rocks back and swat-pulls it over wide long off. SImply amazing. What a batsman. This is pure violence!

29.6 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, He has done it! One-day record. No one has hit six sixes in a row. GIbbs stands alone in that zone.
