Willem Ludick conceded 43 runs in an over

Hamilton, Nov 7 (IESports) Central Districts bowler Willem Ludick conceded 43 runs in an over to Joe Carter and Brett Hampton of Northern Districts in a List A game here – a new record.

In recorded List A cricket history, the 39 runs given away by Abahani Limited medium pacer Alauddin Babu to former Zimbabwe captain Elton Chigumbura, playing for Sheikh Jamal Club in a game in Dhaka in the 2013-14 season, was the earlier record for most expensive over.

Carter and Hampton combined to push that record down by four runs against Ludick, the Pretoria-born 21-year-old playing just his fourth List A fixture.

The sequence for the over – the 46th of the Northern Districts innings – went: 4, 6 (+1 nb), 6 (+1nb), 6, 1, 6, 6, 6. The two no-balls were both for high full-tosses. The two batsmen hit three sixes each.

The unfortunate Ludick ended with figures of 10-0-85-1, having given away a respectable 42 runs in his other nine overs.

Carter scored 102 not out in 77 balls from No.6 and Hampton hit 95 in 66 as Northern Districts put up 313/7 in their 50 overs. Central Districts chased well but went down by 25 runs.
