Gibbs hits six sixes in an over

Watching Gibbs go for six sixes in an over was fascinating. I was dropping off to sleep , on and off, when he went for the feat. Three sixes into the over, it was clear what he had in his mind. The last two balls by Dan Van Bunge were deliveries that one wouldn't associate with being hit for sixes (especially in the direction that Gibbs hit them towards). But having decided to go after the record, I am sure he couldn't have cared less. Gibbs just hammered away!! It was a delight to watch, sure! But I felt sorry for the bowler. This match was anything but! The top ranked team in the world taking on the lowest ranked team in the competition! An argument in favour of not having too many minnows in a World Cup tournament, if ever there was one!

By the way... You can watch a video of Gibb's six sixes here.
