Cricket T-shirt - Umpire 6

On August 31st 1968 Glamorgan were at home to Nottinghamshire at The St. Helens Rugby and Cricket Ground in Swansea. During Nottinghamshire's first innings seam bowler Malcolm Nash decided to try spin bowling to Gary Sobers - 'I was just trying to get him out, simple as that. It was the first time I had played against Sobers in a first-class match, and I wanted his wicket'. Sobers preceeded to hit 6 sixes off the over, the first time this had been achieved in first class cricket. Roger Davis caught the fifth ball but in doing so fell over the bounday line - a year earlier Sobers would have been given out, but the law had been changed at the start of the season. He then hit the sixth and last ball of the over out of the ground. His feat was filmed by the BBC's 'Grandstand' programme - the camera team had been told to stop recording at tea, but had kept going as they wanted to practice filming cricket.

This cool retro-styled t-shirt shows an umpire signalling a six. Malcolm Nash knows what that looks like...
