Still Rolling: The Six Sixes Revisited

grahamelloydtalkWhen Garry Sobers hit Malcolm Nash for an historic 36 runs off six deliveries at Swansea in 1968, cricket’s Everest was finally conquered. It had never been done before in more than 150 years of the game.

In 2006, the ball supposedly used in the over fetched a record £26,400 at Christie’s - but was it the right one?
When it was put up for sale again in 2012, the plot thickened... 

To celebrate the recent 50th anniversary of Sobers’ achievement, Grahame Lloyd, authorof Howzat? The Six Sixes Ball Mystery, recalls both the famous feat and the bizarre fate of the sold ball as the auction house now re-investigates its controversial sale.

Featuring DVD, poetry and song, this hour-long talk examines an iconic moment, a disturbing tale of fake news and a whodunnit? – but with a ball instead of a body.

"What a great night: a packed clubhouse was thoroughly enthralled by the story of the Six Sixes and the ball. Delivered in an excellent mix of narration, poetry and song.  Brilliant, totally enjoyed by all."  Kimberley Institute CC

“Grahame Lloyd’s one-man show is a tour de force; part Antiques Roadshow, part Crown Court and with a little bit of Britain’s Got Talent thrown in, it all adds up to a wholly entertaining experience.” Norfolk Cricket Society

“Like a dazzling over by Shane Warne in his pomp, it had it all. For his version of a leg break, googly, top spinner, flipper, slider and zooter, Grahame delivered facts, history,
poetry, intrigue, jokes and even live music! The audience were left bowled over by a fabulous evening. Thoroughly recommended.” Rye Arts Festival
