10. Ross Taylor v Abdul Razzaq (4,6,wd,6,wd,2,4,6)

It was possibly one of the worst deaths over blowing in the history of cricket world cup. In a group A match in 2011 world cup, at Pallekele, Ross Taylor caused a nightmare to Pakistan bowlers. New Zealand winning the toss opted to bat first, lost wicket in regular interval. But cricket is a game of glorious uncertainties, from the 44th over of the innings, Ross Taylor started exploding, hitting the ball around the Park, scoring 114 runs in six overs  to notch up 302 for seven for New Zealand in 50 over. He first hit Shoaib for 28 runs before plundering Abdul Razzaq for 30, a new world cup record; till now Razzaq’s over is the 10th highest in terms of runs conceded in an over. The record could not even have happened; Taylor may end up without scoring a single run. He received two gifts from Pakistani fielders before he cruised to an unbeaten 131 run from 124 balls. Taylor edged the second ball of Shoaib’s second spell. Kamran moved towards his right, stopped and looked expectantly at the first slip where Younis Khan was in shock as the ball went between them to the boundary. Two balls later Taylor edged Shoaib again, this time Kamran dropped the simplest of chances.
