Two batsmen have hit a record 43 runs off an over in a provincial one-day match in New Zealand.
Two New Zealand batsmen have combined to set a world record by hitting 43 runs, including six sixes, from a single over in a domestic one-day cricket match.
Joe Carter and Brett Hampton were helped by two no-balls as they set the record while batting for Northern Districts against Central Districts in a Ford Trophy match in Hamilton on Wednesday.
Aided by two no-balls, the pair hit six sixes, a four and a single from Central’s South Africa-born medium fast bowler Willem Ludick.
The bowler, who went into his 10th over with figures of 1-42, returned 1-85.
The previous record for a List A one-day match was 39 runs from an over, set by Zimbabwe’s Elton Chigumbura while batting for Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi against Abahani Ltd in the Dhaka Premier League.
