Two New Zealand batsmen have combined to set a world record by hitting 43 runs, including six sixes, from a single over in a domestic one-day cricket match.
Joe Carter and Brett Hampton were helped by two no-balls as they set the record while batting for Northern Districts against Central Districts in a Ford Trophy match in Hamilton on Wednesday.

Aided by two no-balls, the pair hit six sixes, a four and a single from Central’s South Africa-born medium fast bowler Willem Ludick.
The bowler, who went into his 10th over with figures of 1-42, returned 1-85.
The previous record for a List A one-day match was 39 runs from an over, set by Zimbabwe’s Elton Chigumbura while batting for Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi against Abahani Ltd in the Dhaka Premier League.
The scoring went (with Hampton facing Ludick to start the over): 4, 6 (+1 for no ball), 6 (+1 for no ball), 6, 1, 6, 6, 6.
It was the 46th over of the ND innings. They ended their 50 overs batting first in the fifth-round Trophy match at 313-7, with Carter 102 not out off 77 balls while Hampton made 95 off 66 deliveries.
The duo put on 178 for the sixth wicket in 21 overs – a Northern Districts record for the sixth wicket against Central Districts, breaking the previous mark of 150 by BJ Watling and Peter McGlashan in 2011.
