29.1 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX Gibbs charged down the track and hoicked it over long on.

29.2 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX Floated on the leg and middle-stump line and Gibbs sends it soaring over long-off.

29.3 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX Flatter one this time but it makes no difference to Gibbs. He just stands there and delivers. This one also has been sucked over long-off

29.4 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX Low full toss and guess where this went Yep. A slap slog and it went over deep midwicket! He is going to go for six sixes in this over!

29.5 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Short in length, on the off-stump line and Gibbs rocks back and swat-pulls it over wide long off. Simply amazing. What a batsman

29.6 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, He's done it! One-day record. No one has hit six sixes in a row. GIbbs stands alone in that zone. And the minnow bashing continues! Full and outside off and bludgeoned over deep midwicket
