The winning shot
Conrad dreams of playing cricket for the Windies and emulating Garfield Sobers‘ who hit six sixes in an over in a county cricket match on 31 August 1968 in Cardiff. He is also half Scottish and dreams of playing rugby for Scotland.

In the last school U11 Colts A  cricket match of Kingswood House School vs Belmont School Conrad had a lot resting on his shoulders. Could he change the outcome from a draw to a win.

The Colts U11 play Twenty20 cricket. Belmont School batted first. Kingswood House School were left chasing 126 runs.

Conrad was playing sixth man. In the last over Kingswood House School equalised the score. On the penultimate ball, fifth man his classmate Mustaf was run out. With one ball to go Conrad went in. To win one run was needed off the last ball. Enjoy the video of Conrad’s shot off the last ball.

Well done Kingwood House School. Great shot Conrad. Maybe the Windies will notice you and put you on their watch list!  Thanks to Mustaf’s Dad for the video.

Here is Conrad’s Bajan hero Garfield Sobers‘ hitting six sixes in an over in the Glamorgan vs Nottinghamshire county cricket match in Swansea on 31 August 1968. That day Sobers became the first batsman ever to hit six sixes in a single over off six consecutive balls in first-class cricket. The feat consisted of five clean hits for six and one six where the ball was caught by Roger Davis who fell over the boundary rope, giving Sobers another six. The very unfortunate bowler was Malcolm Nash.
