Northern Districts duo smash world record 43 from an over

At the other end of the record then was former Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura, who smashed four sixes and three fours in a seven-ball over courtesy a no-ball.

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.

The Northern Districts duo, up against unlucky Central Districts youngster Willem Ludick, both smacked six after six in the over. "It was a "see ball, hit ball scenario". 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.

Earlier this year, JP Duminy had broken a South Africa List A record by hitting 37 runs off one Eddie Leie over, while playing for the Cape Cobras during a Momentum one-day Cup game. "We came together (at the end of the over) and said 'how many did we get on that?' I think we said it was 39".

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.

Hampton started the onslaught with a four, followed by two legside sixes as Ludick bowled two waist-high no balls.

The bowler would consider himself unlucky as the first ball of the over was a flawless widish yorker which could have been chopped onto the stumps, but it luckily for the batsman missed the wickets and went for a boundary. Carter joined in on the fun thumping the hapless bowler for three mammoth sixes all through the leg side to take the record as Ludick's figures went from a respectable 9-0-42-1 to a horrific 10-0-85-1.
