In 1958 Gary Sobers set the Test cricket record for the highest ever score at the time by scoring 365 runs in614 minutes in a single innings that included 38 fours against Pakistan.
It was his first Test century and a record whichstood for over 36 years until it was surpassed by Brian Lara in 1994. Sobers'innings still remains the highest maiden Test century ever.
In 1968 Sobers became the first ever batsman to hit sixsixes off one over of six consecutive balls in firstclass cricket against Glamorgan in Swansea. The unfortunate bowler was Malcolm Nash.
