Shivam Dube concedes 34 runs in an over
In this match, Kiwi batsmen thrashed Indian all-rounder Shivam Dube to all the corners of the ground. With this, Dube created an unwanted record to his name by spending 34 runs in an over. He broke the record of another Indian all-rounder Stuart Binny, who gave away 32 runs in an over in 2016 against the West Indies.
In the 10th over of the second innings, Dube was taken to task by Tim Seifert and Ross Taylor. Seifert hit him for two consecutive sixes in the first two balls, while the third ball took a healthy edge and rushed to the boundary.
Seifert took a single but Taylor did not stop and scored a boundary on the very next ball, which proved to be a no ball. The next two balls were half volleys and Taylor made the most of it by collecting a dozen runs to make it 34 for the over.
