Gibbs be­came the first crick­eter to achieve this feat in an ODI match dur­ing the 2007 World Cup in the West Indies. The hap­less bowler was Nether­lands spin­ner Daan van Bunge.

The lot – sold for about R300 000 to an anony­mous buyer – in­cluded the bat, the shirt Gibbs wore and also that of Van Bunge who had signed his shirt with the in­scrip­tion: “They were only small sixes.”

Gibbs, now 44 and re­tired, has an­other bat that may end up on auc­tion. In March 2006, he played the best in­nings of his ca­reer while chas­ing a to­tal of 434 scored by Aus­tralia in Joburg. In the high­est suc­cess­ful run chase in the his­tory of cricket across all the game’s for­mats, Gibbs scored 175 runs from just 111 balls. It was then the high­est in­di­vid­ual score by any player against Aus­tralia. – Auc­tions Writer
