The Kiwi of New Zealand batting duo, Joe Carter and Brett Hampton have smashed the record of Zimbabwe’s Elton Chigumbura.
That is after both men walloped a massive 43 from a single over in a one-day match in New Zealand.
The pair combined for a sequence of 4, 6nb, 6nb, 6, 1, 6, 6, 6 in the 46th over of Northern Districts’ innings.
And that was during the 25-run victory they were able to pick up against Central Districts in the Ford Trophy.
Carter and Hampton beat the initial record for a single over in a List A game 39 hit by Chigumbura.
The unlucky bowler in New Zealand was Willem Ludick, though, whose two no balls in the over landed for beamers.
And that particularly was the case as both of his balls suffered a hit for six by Hampton.
The scorecard did show the world record over while also giving a graphic display of the damage to Ludick’s figures.
“I suppose it was a sort of see-ball-hit-ball scenario” – Hampton
Hampton said the duo of himself and Carter were clueless what they had achieved when they were in the middle.
And that was as a result of the fact that they believed they had only got 39 from the over.
He went on: “It was right at the end and I suppose it was a sort of see-ball-hit-ball scenario.
“And then, we went straight ahead to get a couple of free no balls which helped us to get going.
“However, I passed it on to Joey to finish it off in the end,” he summed up.
