Hitting 43 runs in an over!

CD's Willem Ludick saw 43 runs conceded from one over of his against ND in Hamilton on Wednesday

CD's Willem Ludick saw 43 runs conceded from one over of his against ND in Hamilton on Wednesday

This broke the record for the most runs conceded in an over in the history of List A cricket.The previous record was held by Zimbabwe national Elton Chigumbura who had smoked Alauddin Babu, a Bangladesh first-class cricketer, for 39 runs in an over during a Dhaka Premier League match in 2013.

Two New Zealand batsmen, Joe Carter and Brett Hampton combined together to set a world record by scoring 43 runs off a single over in a domestic One Day cricket match at Seddon Park in Hamilton.

World Record Alert! Six sixes in an over are something that does not happen every day and to top that get 43 runs in an over is unheard off. The bowler at the receiving end was South Africa-born fast bowler Willem Ludick. Hampton missed his maiden List A century by just five runs, while Carter brought up his.

In a first-class match between Wellington and Canterbury in 1990, occasional bowler Bert Vance conceded 77 in an over in which only one of his first 17 deliveries was legitimate, part of a freaky attempt to contrive a result on the final day.

Hampton started the onslaught with a four, followed by two legside sixes as Ludick bowled two waist-high no balls. He then hit a third six off a legitimate delivery before taking a single to give Carter the strike.

The bowler, who went into his 10th over with figures of 1-42, returned 1-85.

The duo added 178 for the sixth wicket in 21 overs, which now happens to be a team record. The stand was a Northern Districts record for the sixth wicket, surpassing the 150 set by BJ Watling and Peter McGlashan.
