ICL: Indian Cricket League

42 runs in one over in UK

Whether the cricketing world moved a bit from its foundation is unknown, yet the mind really boggled when it had to deal with the stats.

According to the Yorkshire Post an amateur cricketer smashed six sixes, a four and followed it up with a two for good measure.

Whether the ICC will recognise it as the new world record will depend to a large extent on whether the match was an oficial one - anything official in it will suffice.

The best part about it was that the feat was achieved by Jonathan Hughes, 29, from Cookridge, Leeds, in just his second innings for his team North Leeds

There may have been mitigating circumstances to the feat - the hapless bowler was a trundling 41-year-old and he bowled two no-balls. If the runs for the no-balls are added the over yielded 44 runs!

They were playing in the Airedale and Wharfedale League’s Waddilove Cup. Hughes ended up scoring a huge 126 not out. The first three balls were hit for a six, and Hughes took two to notch up his ton and then unleashed three consecutive sixes. He ended the massacre with a four.
