Malcolm Nash, Glamorgan star hit for a record six sixes in one over by Garry Sobers, has passed awayby Gary Reading, Aug 2019
Former Glamorgan star Malcolm Nash, the bowler famously smashed for six sixes in an over by cricketing great Garry Sobers, has died.
Nash collapsed while attending a sports dinner in London last night. He was taken to hospital but passed away.
Left-arm bowler Nash was powerless as West Indies and Nottinghamshire captain Sobers repeatedly caned the ball over the boundary at St Helen’s, Swansea to be the first batsman to complete the feat in first-class cricket.
Sobers blasted the ball out of the ground – it was sold at auction 13 years ago for £26,400 – in August 1968 with black and white television pictures of it being broadcast around the cricket world.
Abergavenny-born Nash, who was 74, was in the undefeated Glamorgan team that won the County Championship in 1969, being its leading wicket-taker with 71.
He captained Glamorgan in 1980 and 1981, making 336 first-class appearances during his 17 years with the Welsh county.
Nash took 993 wickets and made 7,129 runs as a batsman, his top score being 130.
He played Minor Counties cricket for Shropshire before spending time as a coach in California and Kansas in the United States, returning to Wales six years ago.
