    Most runs off 1 over in test cricket

    Lara has surpassed Craig McMillan for the most overs off 1 over in test cricket..but I was surprised to see how many NZ'landers were at the top of that list:

    B.C Lara - 28 v Robin Petersen
    C.D.McMillan - 26 v Younis Khan
    A.M.E Roberts (W.I) - 25 v Ian Botham
    B.Sutcliffe/R.W Blair (NZ) - 25 v H.J Tayfield (S.A)
    N.J Astle/C.L Cairns - 25 v Andy Caddick
    J.F.M Morrison (NZ) - 24 v Imran Khan

    Ian Smith also features at 11 for hitting 24 off Indian bowler A.S Wassan.

    The big shock in finding Andy Roberts. I would of expected Sir Viv to be up there.

    phenomonal over from BCL.

    The fifth shot he hit off the over was possibly the hardest shot i've seen in cricket.

    the shot was fired straight back at the bowler, going about a metre from the umpires head.

    Peterson had an attempt to catch but went no where near it, and even if he had've got his hands to it, I'd reckon there was more of a chance of the ball breaking his hands than Lara being caught.

    Shame most of those are contrived overs.

    That means that Alex Tudor has delivered the most expensive over in First Class Cricket under normal match conditions!

    Malcolm Nash, to his eternal credit, continued to try to get King Gary out - there were no 'free hits' involved - I saw this happen live - the game was broadcast live on BBC Wales, which we had no trouble picking up in our area.

    The Frank Hayes one, sorry, I have no idea.

    Malcolm Nash was a pretty decent quick bowler who could also bowl slow left arm orthodox - and it was the latter style he was using in the Sobers confrontation. Maybe he should have bowled it 'flat'.

    And has made a lot of money out of it. He has been in demand for afterdinner speechs and the like and everytime he has told of it and made cash out of it.

    It may seem weird but for him finicially it was probably a good thing he got belted for 36 runs off the over.
