Kiwi duo scripts record, scores 43 runs in one overLast updated on Nov 07, 2018, 04:53 pm
In an interesting event, two New Zealand domestic batsmen broke the List A world record for the most number of runs scored off one over.
The pair hit 43 runs in a single over, which included six sixes.
These two batsmen, who play for Northern Districts, were helped by two no-balls as well.
Here's more on the same.
SA-born pacer Willem Ludick smashed by Northern Districts duo
Joe Carter and Brett Hampton were batting for Northern Districts against Central Districts in a domestic one-day cricket match in Hamilton.
The List A world record over of the duo read 4, 6+nb, 6+nb, 6, 1, 6, 6, 6.
South Africa-born fast bowler Willem Ludick was the victim in this show.
He ended with figures of 1/85.
Sit back and enjoy the carnage
Northern Districts hammer their opponent in style
The onslaught helped Northern Districts reach a staggering score of 7/313.
Carter smashed a 66-ball 102, as Hampton struck a 66-ball 95.
In the end, Northern Districts won the match by 25 runs.
Dean Foxcroft, of Central Districts, saw his unbeaten 120 go in vain.
The side managed 288/9 handing Northern Districts their first win of the season.
It was a 'see ball, hit ball scenario': Hampton
Northern Districts batsman Hampton said, "It was pretty special. It was a 'see ball, hit ball scenario'. We got a few no balls to help us get going. At the end of it we came together and discussed, How many did we actually get?"
Elton Chigumbura's 39-run record broken
The previous record for the most runs in an over in List A was held by Zimbabwe's Elton Chigumbura (39).
He was batting for Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi against Abahani Ltd in a match in the Dhaka Premier League.
The most runs scored in one over in international cricket is 36.
Gibbs set the record in ODIs, whereas Yuvraj Singh got the same in T20Is.
