• Gibbs makes history

    On this day at the 2007 World Cup, Herschelle Gibbs became the first batsman to smack six sixes in an over in international cricket.

    The venue was Warner Park, one of the smallest grounds on the international circuit, and the victim was Netherlands’ part-time leg-spinner Daan van Bunge.

    ‘Daan bowled some good balls and some shit balls,’ said the Dutch captain, Luuk van Troost, as Gibbs bludgeoned his way to a million-dollar charity pay-out from the tournament sponsors, Johnnie Walker.
