England bowler Robinson hit for 43 in Historic Over

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 two sixes, six fours - three of which were off no-balls - 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 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 Lawrenceoff 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 after the opening game against West Indies at Lord's from 10 July.

Kimber's record-breaking over helped the batter continue an astonishing innings that had reached 191 off 92 balls by lunch - part of an eighth-wicket stand of an unbroken 200 with Ben Cox.

Leicestershire hit 236 from 29 overs in the morning session but still needed 89 runs for victory with just three wickets remaining when play paused at 13:00 BST.
