Cricket slang for scoring 28.

The term Gary comes from former Ashes winning England Cricket Captain Michael Vaughan. Who disguised himself as Leeds plumber Gary Watson to play as a ringer in a rematch between Goldsborough CC 2nds and Dishforth CC - The Secret Cricketer game five years later in August 4 2011. Vaughan, as a former International, was expected to score many runs during his innings. In the event he was out for Twenty Eight. In the original match in 2006, every Goldsborough player was out for a Duck (O), making them the worst scoring team in England for over 70 years.

With the help of Gary Watson (Michael Vaughan) Goldsborough restored pride to their club, defeating Dishforth who scored 105 - 6. Goldsborough won by three wickets scoring 107-7.
"He's got his Gary", "He needs a six to reach his Gary", or "Oh dear he's gone for a Gary" if bowled out on 28.

Multiples can be used, Double Gary = 56, Triple = 84 etc.
