Northern Districts’ batsmen create world record, smashing 43 runs off an over

May JohnsonNov 08, 2018

Joe Carter and Brett Hampton were helped by two no-balls in setting the record while batting for Northern Districts against Central Districts in a Ford Trophy match on Wednesday. South Africa-born fast bowler Willem Ludick was at the receiving end as he was taken to the cleaners, literally. Two waist-high no-balls were then slammed over the deep square and deep midwicket fence respectively followed by a straight six down the ground.

Two Kiwi batsmen have combined to set a new cricket world record for the most runs scored in an over. This is the most number of runs conceded in an over in a List A game. Hampton missed his maiden List A century by just five runs, while Carter brought up his.

The bowler would consider himself unlucky as the first ball of the over was a ideal widish yorker which could have been chopped onto the stumps, but it luckily for the batsman missed the wickets and went for a boundary. Ludick's figures changed drastically after this over as it suddenly changed from 9-0-42-1 to 10-0-85-1.

This toppled the 39 conceded by Alauddin Babu, a Bangladesh first-class cricketer, in a Dhaka Premier League match in 2013.

He then took a single off the next ball and gave the strike to Carter, who hit the last three balls of the over to the deep midwicket fence to collect three consecutive sixes. The stand was a Northern Districts record for the sixth wicket, surpassing the 150 set by BJ Watling and Peter McGlashan.
