Cricket lovers around the world rejoice. Sir Gary Sobers unique feat has been acheived by Gibbs in ODI’s. I dont know how to compare this with any other sporting activity to explain this. Imagine hitting six consequtive home runs in the same game, now imagine doing the same with the ball bounced from the ground.
Commentary from cricinfo
Herschelle Gibbs’s six sixes off Dan van Bunge’s fourth over was a record for international matches. Cricinfo’s ball-by-ball commentator Sriram Veera captured all the excitement and action as it happened in this ball-by-ball description:

29.1 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Violence! Gibbs charged down the track and hoicked it over long on.
29.2 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Murder! Floated on the leg and middle stump line and Gibbs sends it soaring over long-off.
29.3 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, Carnage! 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, Wah Wah! Low full toss and guess where this went Yep. A slap slog and it went over deep midwicket! He is going to go for 6 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. This is pure violence!
29.6 van Bunge to Gibbs, SIX, He has 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
