Northern Districts Pair Smashes 43 Runs In An Over to Register New List A World Record
Northern Districts pair, Joe Carter and Brett Hampton recently created a new List A World Cup when they smashed 43 runs in an over. The duo hammered 43 off an over bowled by Central District’s Willem Ludick in a Ford Trophy fixture, the most conceded in an over in List A cricket.
Meanwhile, this overtook the 39 conceded by Alauddin Babu, a Bangladesh first-class cricketer. He gave away this in a Dhaka Premier League match in 2013. At the other end of the record then was former Zimbabwe skipper Elton Chigumbura. He smashed four sixes and three fours in a seven-ball over courtesy a no-ball.
Hampton started the onslaught with a four followed by two sixes off two waist-high no-balls. He then struck a third six off a legitimate delivery before taking a single to give Carter the strike. Carter, playing in only his fifth List A match, smashed the last three balls for six to blaze into the record books. Moreover, Willem Ludick ended with the bowling figure of 10-0-85-1.
The duo came to the crease when Northern District were reeling at 95 for five. They added 178 runs for the sixth wicket to post a massive total. Hampton missed his maiden List A century by just five runs, while Carter brought up his hundred.
Furthermore, the stand was a Northern Districts record for the sixth wicket, surpassing the 150 set by BJ Watling and Peter McGlashan.
