Keepers expression is priceless.

Herschelle Gibbs hit 6 sixes in a over, Mark Boucher had the fastest50 and there were 3 hundred partnerships. Among all Kallis got a century. Before world Cup started there was talk about minnows in this world cup and after this game I am sure their are going to more of these talks. After Australia and Sri Lanka won there game with margin of 200 plus so there is a valid case for this discussion. But Still hitting 6 sixes is a row is some hitting. It is record and happened first time in ODI (One Day International).

6 Sixes in a Over

And this is how South African innings ended. The only thing positive was that Match was 40 overs per innings. I don’t know why Netherlands did not bat after winning toss.

Ending Overs

I hope the Netherlands aren’t too disheartened by this massacre.
