November 7, 2018

Two New Zealand batsmen set a world record by smashing 43 runs in a single over during a domestic 50-over match.

Joe Carter and Brett Hampton of Northern Districts took advantage of the two no-balls and ran rampant on Central's Williem Ludick.

The over started with a boundary. Next up was a no-ball, which was hit for a six. Ludik delivered another no-ball which cleared the boundary. The second legitimate delivery was also deposited into the stands.

The batsmen took a single and went on to smash three consecutive sixes to achieve the feat.

The previous record of the most runs in a list A one-day international over belonged to Elton Chigumbura, who scored 39 runs for Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi against Abahani Ltd.
