County Championship: Sussex’s Ollie Robinson hit for 43 in an over by Leicestershire

Must Read


England fast bowler Ollie Robinson was hit for 43 runs in the most expensive over in the history of the County Championship.

Sussex’s Robinson was struck for five sixes – three of which were off no-balls – three fours and a single by Leicestershire’s Louis Kimber in the fourth and final day of their Division Two match on Wednesday.

It is believed to be the most expensive over ever in all first-class cricket when there was no compliance from the bowler (i.e. bowling for a declaration).

Kimber’s feat is comfortably the most runs scored by a batter in one over of English first-class cricket.

Surrey’s Alex Tudor conceded 38 runs in an over to Lancashire’s Andrew Flintoff in 1998 – a mark equalled earlier this week by Surrey’s Dan Lawrence off the bowling of England team-mate Shoaib Bashir.

Robinson is hoping to play a significant role for England men’s Test side this summer, particularly following the retirement of Jimmy Anderson.
