‘See ball, hit ball’, New Zealand duo belt 43 runs off single over - Watch
Central Districts medium pacer Willem Ludick earned an unwanted place in the record books on Wednesday when Northern Districts took 43 runs off one of his overs in a domestic one-day cricket match in New Zealand. 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. Carter finished on 102 not out, while Hampton was dismissed for 95 as Northern Districts scored 313 for seven in their 50 overs in the game that they eventually won by 25 runs. “It was right at the end and I suppose it was a ‘see ball, hit ball’ scenario,” said Hampton. They discounted the 77 runs that former New Zealand batsman Robert Vance conceded during a first-class match against Canterbury in 1990.
