Malcolm Nash

Malcolm is immortalized in cricket history as the man who bowled the over which Notts CCC captain Garry Sobers hit for a record 36 runs in 1968 but what many people may not be aware of is that Malcolm Nash was a very accomplished first class cricketer. In a career stretching from 1966 to 1983 Malcolm took 993 first class wickets with best bowling figures of 9 for 56. He was also handy with the bat and scored over 7,000 first class runs which included two centuries and 25 fifties.

“You couldn’t have done it without me!” Malcolm Nash to Garry Sobers after the record breaking 36 runs in an over.

Malcolm will be joined on the evening by Grahame Lloyd, author of Six of the Best: Cricket’s Most Famous Over and Howzat? The Six Sixes Ball Mystery
