The first five balls were dispatched cleanly by the West Indian and the sixth was carried over the ropes by a fielder. <p></p> <p></p>Sobers had been frustrated by his team's slow progress as Nottinghamshire were approaching a declaration and Nash was experimenting with slow bowling. <p></p> <p></p>Nash, a left-armer, took 993 first-class wickets in a 17-year career between 1966 and 1983, while also scoring 7,129 runs and holding 148 catches. <p></p> <p></p>"Malcolm was a true Glamorgan legend whose exploits have gone down in club folklore," chief executive Hugh Morris told the club's website. <p></p> <p></p>"His name is connected with that of Garry Sobers... but he was a fantastic cricketer who was an integral part of the club's history and the side that lifted the County Championship in 1969." <p></p> <p></p>Nash died in hospital in London after being taken ill at a function at Lord's Cricket Ground on Tuesday.
