Herschelle Gibbs smashes a record six sixes in an over

Cricinfo staff

March 16, 2007

Herschelle Gibbs's six sixes off Dan van Bunge's fourth over was a record for international matches. Cricinfo's ball-by-ball commentator Sriram Veera captured all the excitement and action as it happened in this ball-by-ball description:

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. And the minnow bashing continues! Full and outside off and bludgeoned over deep midwicket

Thought is free.

The South Africa innings also contained a 15th ODI hundred for Jacques Kallis (128no), a World Cup best 21-ball half-century as Mark Boucher (75no) joined in an unbroken 134-run stand in nine overs, 67 from captain Graeme Smith - and a world record 18 sixes. ....south africa on fire

It was the first match in the world cup history to have 3 contiuous triple figure Partnership.
that is; This was also the first time there were three century stands in a single innings of a one-day international. After AB de Villiers's second-ball dismissal, Graeme Smith and Jacques Kallis added 114 for the second wicket, Kallis and Herschelle Gibbs put together 105 for the third, while Kallis and Boucher added 134 for the fourth.

And it was the first highest total by south Africa against any country in World Cup History.

And Theft!
No one is safe anywhere,
Thieves are rampant everywhere
Light is stolen,
Dreams are stolen,
Faith is stolen,
Mud is stolen,
Love is stolen,
Life and death are stolen
Alas! What can you expect from others,
When God himself is a thief?
In "Indra Jatra" by Dinesh Adhikary, Sajha Prakashan, 2051 B.S
