Hitting 43 runs in an over!

Brett Hampton hit three sixes a four and a single in the record over

Willie Ludick of Notherns during day 4 of the Coca-Cola Khaya Majola Week at PBHS Abernethy Oval between Northerns vs Eastern Province on December 20, 2014 in Pretoria, South Africa.

Cape Town - One of the craziest stories of the week has been that of the two New Zealand batsmen who set a world record by hitting 43 runs, including six sixes, from a single over in a domestic one-day cricket match. "It was a "see ball, hit ball scenario".

Two Kiwi batsmen have combined to set a new cricket world record for the most runs scored in an over.

He further said, "We got a couple of free no balls which helped us to get going".

"At the end of it we came together and discussed, 'How many did we actually get?'" While Hampton fell short of a century by 5 runs falling for a 66-ball, Hampton amassed 102* in just 77 balls. This is the most number of runs conceded in an over in a List A game. The onslaught was started by Hampton, who got an under-edge past the 'keeper for a four first ball off Ludick's tenth and final over.

Before this, the record was with Zimbabwe worldwide 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.

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

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.

The duo added 178 for the sixth wicket in 21 overs, which now happens to be a team record.
