Meeting 12 December - Malcolm Nash

Fifty years ago, at Swansea on 31 August 1968, Sir Garfield Sobers hit 'Six Sixes' in one six-ball over - the first player in senior cricket to achieve the feat. But who was the unlucky bowler? None other than Glamorgan all-rounder, and later captain, Malcolm Nash. Join Malcolm to relive an iconic moment in cricket history - by chance recorded for posterity by BBC Wales (watch here); learn more about his bowling and his own feats as a big-hitter (four consecutive sixes in one over, plus the fastest-ever century in the B&H Cup); and enjoy great stories of cricket in the 60s and 70s, many featuring the all-conquering Yorkshire team of that era - Close, Trueman, Boycott, Illingworth et al.  

Signed copies of Malcolm's autobiography - Not Only, But Also: My Life in Cricket (St David's Press, May 2018) - will be available. Read more in interviews with Gareth Griffiths, BBC Sport Wales [here]; Lawrence Booth, Daily Mail [here]

‘A thoughtful and sensitive cricketer’ John Arlott 

‘People should remember that Malcolm was a wonderful opening many of his peers’ minds the best new ball bowler in county cricket’ Peter Walker 

‘Somehow one sensed that something extraordinary was going to happen when Sobers sauntered to the wicket.’ Wisden 

'wherever I go, all I hear is: “Tell us about the six sixes".’ Garry Sobers

Everyone welcome - no dress code, no formalities, just great cricket chat!
