WATCH : Ollie Robinson for 43 runs in one over during a county match


Sussex had an impressive start in the first innings after Leicestershire won the toss and chose to bowl. John Simpson’s remarkable 183 and Oliver Carter’s solid 96 drove Sussex to a formidable total of 442 runs.

In response, Leicestershire struggled and were bowled out for a mere 275 runs, with Sean Hunt taking four wickets and Ollie Robinson claiming three. However, Robinson’s bowling brilliance was marred by an unfortunate record in the second innings against Louis Kimber.

During the 59th over, Kimber faced Robinson and set a new record for the most runs scored in a single over in County Championship history. Kimber began with a six off the first ball, followed by a four off a no-ball on the second.

The extra delivery was dispatched for another four. He continued with a six over backward square leg off the third legal delivery, hit another boundary off the fourth ball, and smashed another six off a no-ball on the fifth. Kimber reached his century off just 62 balls with this hit.

He concluded the over with a four and another six off a no-ball, finishing with a single. Kimber, who was batting at 72 off 56 balls before Robinson’s disastrous over, managed to reach his century and was at 109 off just 65 balls by the time the over concluded.
