The over that went for 43 runs!

The pair hit 4, 6 from a no ball, 6 from a no ball, 6, 1, 6, 6 and 6 from the bowling of Central's South Africa-born medium fast bowler Willem Ludick.

South Africa's Herschelle Gibbs also hit six sixes for a tally of 36 off Netherlands legspinner Daan van Bunge during a 2007 World Cup match in St. Kitts, the most in an global one-dayer.

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.

Parineeti Chopra wants $5 mn shoe-hiding fee from Nick Jonas
"But I can try for you, if you agree to pay the 5 million dollar shoe hiding fee!" she replied to her to-be brother-in-law. Ahead of her bachelorette party in Europe, the actress celebrated with a bridal shower in New York City last weekend.

"It was right at the end and I suppose it was a "see ball, hit ball" scenario", said Hampton. We got a few no balls to help us get going. 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.

"At the end of it we came together and discussed, 'How many did we actually get?'" This is the most number of runs conceded in an over in a List A game. The onslaught was started by Hampton with a four, followed by three sixes including two sixes off two waist-high no-balls and a single off third delivery putting Carter on strike. 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. Chigumbara while playing for Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club hammered 39 runs off an over bowled by Abahani Limited bowler Alauddin Babu in Dhaka Premier League held in 2013.

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