Zee Media Bureau

New Delhi: Bangladeshi pacer Alauddin Babu conceded record 39 runs in an over while representing Abahani Limited in the Dhaka Premier Division.

The 21-year-old was entrusted to bowl the final over of the Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club’s innings and facing him was Zimbabwean all-rounder Elton Chigumbura.

Here is how the over turned out:-

• 49.0 -- No ball, five runs

• 49.0—1 Wide

• 49.1 – 6 runs

• 49.2 – 4 runs

• 49.3 – 6 runs

• 49.4 – 4 runs

• 49.5 – 6 runs

• 49.5 – 1 Wide

• 49.6 – 6 runs

This happens to be the most expensive over in the history of List A games. The previous record was held by Herschell Gibbs of South Africa who smoked Dutch spinner Dan van Bunge for six sixes in an over during the 2007 World Cup.
