What is the most a player can score in a single over? The record in one-day internationals is 36 runs, which has been accomplished twice: once by Herschelle Gibbs of South Africa against the Netherlands in 2006 and again by Jaskaran Malhotra of the United States against Papua New Guinea in 2021. Jasprit Bumrah of India holds the record for the most runs scored in a single over in a Test, with 35 against England in 2022.
The most runs have ever been scored in an over in T20Is is 36, Yuvraj Singh against England in 2007 and Kieron Pollard against Sri Lanka in 2021 both experienced it. What if someone asserted that 46 runs could be scored in a single over? Do you think that is true?
Even though it may seem impossible, it has happened in a T20 game. In Kuwait, the event took place during a KCC Friends Mobile T20 Champions Trophy 2023 match. NCM Investment’s Vasu humiliated Tally CC’s Harman in a battle between the two teams. Harman was hit for a six after throwing a no-ball to begin the game. He then gave up four byes. He let up five sixes in a row in the following five balls, including one off a no-ball. The final ball of the over was also hit for a boundary, bringing the over’s total runs to 46.

In the IPL, which is known for its lavish spending, 37 runs have twice been scored in a single over. The most in a single over was that. The first time it occurred was when P.Parameswaran of Kochi Tuskers Kerala gave up 37 in a game against RCB in 2011. The next time it occurred was in 2021 when RCB’s Harshal Patel allowed CSK to score that many runs.
