Former West Indies captain, all-rounder and legend of the game Sir Garry Sobers tells us that in his view, once you are on the field of play, you have a duty to entertain those who have paid to come in.
The legendary Sir Garfield Sobers managed to score 26 centuries for the West Indies, a figure which has just been reached by Shivnarine Chanderpaul during the course of the opening Test against Bangladesh.
Chanderpaul equalled his previous best Test score of 203 not out when Darren Sammy declared with his team on an imposing 527 for four.
A cricket ball which may have been used during the famous six sixes match at Swansea in 1968 is being put up for auction later this month â€“ amid continuing speculation about the authenticity of the ball allegedly hit over the boundary by Garry Sobers.
When the then West Indian captain made history by smashing Glamorganâ€™s Malcolm Nash for 36 runs in one over at St Helenâ€™s, the last six disappeared out of the ground and Sobers declared Nottinghamshireâ€™s first innings closed.
