Win A Copy Of 'Howzat? The Six Sixes Ball Mystery'

Win A Copy Of 'Howzat? The Six Sixes Ball Mystery'
 

We have a signed copy of 'Howzat' by Grahame Lloyd, the book that has provoked a row over the famous over in which Sir Garry Sobers hit six sixes in 1968, to give away.

The book, nominated for the 2014 MCC/Cricket Society Book Of The Year award, lays out new evidence about the sale of a cricket ball that was supposedly the one hit by Sobers for Nottinghamshire against Glamorgan.

It also ignited a row involving the bowler at the time - Malcolm Nash.

Howzat? The Six Sixes Ball Mystery features extensive interviews with Sobers, Basharat Hassan, and Jose Miller, the ex-secretary of the Nottinghamshire Supporters’ Association who sold the ball at Christie’s in 2006.

They were conducted partly for a Wisden article which was later dropped because, at the time of printing, Christie’s had not produced a response to Lloyd’s evidence.
