New cricket world record set by Kiwi batsmen

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

There is little denying that the modern-day game is all about power-hitting. But all these factors doesn't undermine with Northern District pair Joe Carter and Brett Hampton achieved on Wednesday.

Two not so popular cricketers in New Zealand domestic circuit have broken the record of most runs off a single over in List-A cricket.

The most runs conceded in an over in global cricket is 36 - a six from every ball - which has happened in both limited-overs formats, and twice in first-class cricket but never (yet) in a Test match.

The previous record was held by Bangladesh's Alauddin Babu.

Before this, the record was with Zimbabwe global Elton Chigumbura, who had scored 39 runs off Alauddin Babu while playing for Sheikh Jamal against Abahani Limited at Dhaka in the 2013-14 season.

Carter then hit the last three deliveries for sixes.

Another six followed from a legitimate ball before he took a single to rotate the strike.

The over read: 4,6nb, 6nb, 6,1,6,6,6.

The 43 runs over, which included two sixes off two no-balls, thus ravished Ludick's figures from a decent 9-0-42-1 to the dismal 10-0-85-1.

Coming in at a precarious 95/5, both Carter and Hampton took their time to resurrect the Northern District's innings. Hampton eventually was dismissed for 95 from 66 balls, while Carter went on to finish unbeaten on 102 from 77 balls, his maiden one-day century, as ND finished on 313-7. The 178-run stand was a Northern Districts record for the sixth wicket, surpassing the 150 set by BJ Watling and Peter McGlashan.
