Abahani bowler leaks record 39 runs in an over

Sheikh Jamal Dhanmondi Club picked up a fourth win in the Dhaka Premier Division, beating Abahani Limited by 28 runs in Mirpur. It was Abahani's fourth loss in five games, and their seamer Alauddin Babu's 39-run over became a world record.

After Dhanmondi were put into bat, they were off to a sound start despite losing Junaid Siddique early. Jahurul Islam, who made 60, added 89 runs for the second wicket with Dilshan Munaweera. They lost a few wickets in the middle overs, but a final onslaught put them right on top.

Elton Chigumbura, the Zimbabwe allrounder, hammered 50 runs in the last 2.5 overs, including the 39 from the last over of the innings bowled by 21-year-old Alauddin. A promising seam-bowling allrounder who was discovered at 17, Babu had played for Bangladesh's Under-19 side in 2010, before graduating to senior cricket. He had also spent time in the National Cricket Academy and plays first-class cricket for Rangpur Division.

He gave away five off the first ball which was a no-ball, and then bowled a wide. Off the next five balls, Chigumbura alternated between sixes and fours, before Alauddin bowled another wide and was finished off with a six. Chigumbura finished with an unbeaten 69 off 54 balls with four fours and five sixes. Alauddin ended up conceding a whopping 93 in his 10 overs, but not all the Abahani bowlers were this profligate. Al-Amin Hossain took four wickets for 38 runs.

Alauddin's 39 was the most runs conceded in an over in List A cricket, beating the Netherlands legspinner Dan van Bunge, who leaked six sixes in an over to Herschelle Gibbs in the 2007 World Cup. It is also the most in Dhaka Premier Division history, beating Naeem Islam's 36 (six sixes) off Marshall Ayub in the 2009-10 season, also at the Shere Bangla National Stadium.

Abahani were deflated by Chigumbura's finish, but their second-wicket partnership between Shahriar Nafees and Tharanga Paranavitana added some solidity. The pair put together exactly 100 runs, but the rest of the Abahani batsmen couldn't hold on to the advantage. Mosaddek Hossain managed 43, but that was not enough as Dhanmondi bowled them out for 254.

Offspinner Abul Bashar took four wickets while seamer Shafiul Islam picked up three.

    @kunal25 - lol you're not making much sense. Zol is not an all-rounder, Mosaddek is so he wins hands down over him plus a year younger so try hard all you like. I remember Unmukt Chand was being hyped by you guys but he doesn't look like getting anyhwere close to the national team now :) and Zol is the same. Wonder who is next overhyped player? :) :P good to see you're so interested in a minnow team. Something is bothering you.

  • TheRisingTeam on October 2, 2013, 16:50 GMT

    @Siddharthaa87:- Unlike an overrated team like India, at least countries like Bangladesh offer contracts to players from the lesser nations and can earn a decent living as well. Even a UAE cricketer named Saqib Ali has been offered a DPL contract to come and play check it out :P So I don't think Elton will at all agree with your silly comment :) hopefully you Indian fans are still not hurt by the thrashing we gave your team last time out because believe me there will be more to come :P :) till then good luck!

  • MAN_AT_WORK on October 2, 2013, 11:54 GMT

    @smack-DAT you are exaggerating no one saying that Bangladesh is the best team in the world and yes Shakib was best all rounder in the world for quite a while(3 years)and still 2nd best all rounder in the world ( he could be the #1 if he is playing more International for his country) and Mosaddek Hossain is the potential cricketer for the country and he has to grow and learn more. @Siddharthaa87 Chigumbura looks like come to play cricket and knocking some bad balls around the park and @Legaleagle don,t you think you should appreciate Bangladeshi clubs to hire Zim cricketers so they can earn more money which is Zim board is not willing to help financially ?

  • Smack-DAT on October 2, 2013, 10:58 GMT

    Bangladesh is a great Cricket playing nation, BAN cricket team is the world best team, Champion of Champions ( So what if they dont have trophies in their cabinet!!) they were the runners up in Asia cup!! Shakib is the all time best all rounder and the best thing happened to Cricket. Mosaddek Hossain will be the world greatest batsmen, he will break all the records including highest runs, centuries, and even the world record of Sir Don 99.94. So all Bangla fans,Happy now!!!

  • on October 2, 2013, 10:13 GMT

    Why some of Indians are so happy for this record by an unknown bd bowler!!!! Before this record there was 3 Indian bowlers on top 5 list. I understand the frustration of some Indian friends as they are going down from 2nd(DB Ravi Teja) , 4th (Sukvinder Singh )and 5th (ASK Varma ) position to 3rd,5th and 6th.below the previous top record 36 (x6) HH Gibbs (36) off DLS van Bunge South Africa v Netherlands St. Kitts 2006/07 35 (64wd6666) RV Gomez (35) off DB Ravi Teja Hyderabad (India) v Kerala Chennai 2009/10 34 (5x6 1x4) IVA Richards (34) off DA Graveney Somerset v Gloucestershire Taunton 1977 34 (4x6 2x4) SC Ganguly (32)(nb 2) off Sukvinder Singh India v India B Chennai 2000/01 32 (4x6 2x4) PV Manikantan (32) off ASK Varma Kerala v Andhra Chennai 2007/08

    It is funny how every post about Bangladesh eventually become a place for Indo-Bangla war. Indian fans often complain that we compare our players with their but the truth is it is always one of the Indian fan who start comparing and when Bangladeshi fan answer back they start crying over it. People like Legaleagle, Albert will be in every single post saying something rubbish. if they really dont like our team than why on earth they are in every single post about us? Scared of something huh. Legaleagle U should be more worried about your team. Our players are far better than over hyped Pak players and Indian fans no wonder your team is the best team in Asia at the moment but u never know what future hold for you. So rather than trying to create a fight just enjoy the game before BCCI send ur team to other country where they get thrashed like the 8-0. (Admin Please Post this)

  • MAN_AT_WORK on October 2, 2013, 8:39 GMT

    Bangladesh must be very popular team to talk about ! no wonder why on earth people from different cricket playing nations are concerning more and more on Bangladesh domestic league? I do understand frustration of Pak supporter no foreign players are willing to play in their domestic league and for Zim supporters you should be very happy and proud playing in Bangladesh. And some Indian supporter should concentrate on there colorful 20/20!

  • Voboghure_Sumon on October 2, 2013, 8:17 GMT

    Why the Indian"s outlook is so narrow! Cricket is a funny & uncertain game. Several times India was the victim of this uncertainty & beaten by Bangladesh! That"s why maximum Indian are not well wisher of Bangladesh, I think. Bangladeshi Cricket has been going on their own way. They are proving themselves gradually. India haven"t invited Bangladesh in their soil still now. I think India is afraid of if they loose any game against Bangladesh in their own soil.

    Is anyone else thinking what I'm thinking?? 39 runs in an over...

  • jimbond on October 2, 2013, 6:42 GMT

    Its tough on the bowler, but it does sound like poetic justice- a Zimbabwe batsman thrashing a BD bowler. It could only be bettered if it were an Irish Batsman against a BD bowler. Anyway no one cares about the small countries, though BD is part of the India/South Asia lobby and got test status. On the other hand I suspect that England would be ensuring that Ireland never gets test status, and nobody else cares.

  • on October 2, 2013, 5:44 GMT

    hahahaha...Bangladesh is the strongest team....This should be the joke of the decade...I know that the Indian team is overhyped but they have more than made it up by winning four world titles (WC 5O OVER 2, WC 20 OVER 1, MINI WC). BD is much more overhyped than even the Indian team. The only rivalry is with the Zimbabwen team who has recently defeated Pakistan in a test match. Bangladesh team has to be scraped from the cricketing world for they offer no competition to any team. They will still be supported by the SL board because they treat the BD team as their bowling machine whenever their senior pros experiencse a slump in form.

  • kunal25 on October 2, 2013, 3:03 GMT

    @Cricket_is_Unpopular: It is under 19 so you can be of any age below the age of 19 so it doesn't matters if Mosaddek Hossain is one year younger. Zol has scored century for India A team where he has faced bowlers who are elder then him. Hope your dreams comes True. But I wish that so called "Overrated Indian Bowling" and hope Indian Batsmen do not thrash the allrounder and does not ends the carrier for Mosaddek

  • kunal25 on October 2, 2013, 2:58 GMT

    @warm_coffee: It doesn't matter if Bangladesh has got strongest of team or not as in the past also player of the loosing team has won MOM or MOS awards. No body is scared of emerging team. FYI Bangladesh holds record for most consecutive losses. ie 21 Tests and 23 ODI's. It is already 13 years still Bangladesh cricket haven't emerged. In 77 Tests they have only won 3 till 12/04/2013. @The_Ashes: No one is afraid of Bangladesh cricket. First start winning tournaments or even start reaching finals in the tournaments consistently and then do any comments. And BTW upcoming reality is future and at the moment India, England and SA has good future.

  • an_alcoholic on October 2, 2013, 2:46 GMT

  • on October 2, 2013, 1:45 GMT

    The most runs were leaked in domestic cricket history was in New Zealand. I red sports magazine it was 77runs in one over one batsman scored 69runs in that particular over alone. Either the bowler was Robert Wonce or the Batsman but 77runs in one over in domestic cricket.

  • TheRisingTeam on October 1, 2013, 22:44 GMT

    Its amazing an unheard Bangladeshi bowler who gets hit everywhere gets so much attention. I wonder why Elton wasn't able to do that against our main bowlers earlier in the year? Stuart Broad got hit for 6 6s so either people are worried about the rise of certain teams or need help. Tamim Iqbal yesterday hit an International bowler for 33 runs in 1 over. Hopefully these haters won't be hiding like always when Bangladesh draws/wins against New Zealand :D

  • gsingh7 on October 1, 2013, 21:58 GMT

    i cannot bet on this record as bpl is still on. new record cud be set anytime soon. the level of bowling has been decreasing in bangla cricket for years and that is the reason they will remain at bottom of test rankings for a long time to come. hope they improve in future.

  • on October 1, 2013, 21:32 GMT

    this is for those people who do not have any Idea about (DPL). It's a 50 over's list A tournament, and very old tournament.Sanath Jaysuria, Arbinda D'silva, Sangakara, Chaminda vas,joyawardhone, inzamamul haq, Saheed afridy, wasim Akram, Shoeb Akhter, Toufiq umor, shoeb malik and so many international players used to play here in Dhaka.There is no Question about it's Quality. I watched few matches of Indians domestic cricket on TV, and I have doubt about the quality of those tournaments and players.

  • The_Ashes on October 1, 2013, 20:36 GMT

    Some people really have sour grapes and are just afraid of Bangladesh Cricket which is of course good to see because they know the coming reality :))

  • Captainman on October 1, 2013, 20:30 GMT

    India tournaments is also of low quality. Even minnows can smack their bowlers out of the park. I'm sure our Mosaddek will destroy the overrated Indian bowling line-up 10/10 :D

  • Captainman on October 1, 2013, 20:20 GMT

    @bigdhonifan - What on earth is your problem? Mosaddek Hossain is a whole year younger than overrated Zol and his under-19 record not DPL like you are talking is all ready better than Zol plus can bowl. He already scored centuries against England, Pakistan and Sri Lanka this year :P btw Shakib already has 300 International wickets and 6200 runs so yeah that's something :P

  • Warm_Coffee on October 1, 2013, 20:16 GMT

    @bigdhonifand: lol who on earth was comparing Shakib and Kohli? Shakib is an all-rounder Kohli isn't. Yes won awards because Bangladesh doesn't have the strongest of teams and if they did then Shakib would've also sweeped lots of awards. Already won player of tournament of Asia Cup where he destroyed your pathetic bowling attack and ranked number 1 all-rounder. Please don't be scared of emerging teams rather embrace it :)
