The over that went for 43 runs!

The over that went for 43 runs!”

Willie Ludick, who grew up in Pretoria and was a member of the 2016 SA Under-19 team at the World Cup, was smashed for an incredible 43 runs off an eight-ball over in a domestic List A game between Central Districts and Northern Districts on Wednesday. Northern Districts batsmen Joe Carter and Brett Hampton belted six sixes - two of which were hit off no balls - a four and a single during the first class match at Hamilton's Seddon Park.

Two batsmen in New Zealand have set a record by scoring 43 runs in an over.

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 duo's feat has toppled the 39 runs smashed by former Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura off an Alauddin Babu's over in a Dhaka Premier League match in 2013.

Hampton started the massacre, first getting a lucky edge off a full delivery that went past the left of the diving keeper to a boundary.

The next went for six as Ludick was called for a no ball. While Hampton fell short of a century by 5 runs falling for a 66-ball, Hampton amassed 102* in just 77 balls. Ludick, who gave up more than half of his runs during the match in that one over, finished with figures of 85 for one-off 10 overs. The partnership between Carter and Hampton was also the record sixth-wicket partnership for Northern Districts against the Central Districts, breaking the previous record of 150 runs set by BJ Watling and Peter McGlashan in 2011.
