Perhaps the most famous Nottinghamshire cricketer of all time celebrates his 76th birthday today.
Born in Bridgetown, Barbados on 28th July 1936, Garfield St Aubrun Sobers was already the holder of the highest individual Test score when he joined the county in 1968.
By the end of his first season at Trent Bridge he’d made a further long-lasting entry into the record books by hitting six sixes in an over against Glamorgan.
The West Indian all-rounder made 107 first-class appearances for Notts, scoring 7,041 runs at 48.89 and taking 281 wickets at 25.62.
