Notes: The following instances have been excluded because of the bowlers' compliance:
34 - MP Maynard off SA Marsh, Glamorgan v Kent at Swansea, 1992; 34 - G Chapple off PA Cottey (Chapple scored a further 32 off Cottey's next over), Lancashire v Glamorgan at Manchester, 1993;
34 - FB Touzel off FJJ Viljoen, Western Province B v Griqualand West at Kimberley, 1993-94.
There were 35 runs off an over received by AT Reinholds off HT Davis, Auckland v Wellington at Auckland 1995-96, but this included 16 extras and only 19 off the bat.
In a match against KwaZulu-Natal at Stellenbosch in 2006-07, WE September (Boland) conceded 34 in an over: 27 to M Bekker, six to K Smit, plus one no-ball.
In a match against Canterbury at Christchurch in 1989-90, RH Vance (Wellington) deliberately conceded 77 runs in an over of full tosses which contained 17 no-balls and, owing to the umpire's understandable miscalculation, only five legitimate deliveries.
The greatest number of runs scored off an eight-ball over is 34 (4, 0, 4, 4,6, 6, 6, 4) by RM Edwards off MC Carew, Governor-General's XI v West Indians at Auckland, 1968-69.

AB de Villiers (129*) and Virat Kohli (109) both scored centuries for RCB against GL at Chinnaswamy Stadium this IPL which is only the second time two batsmen scored 100s in the same T20 innings. Playing for Gloucestershire, Kevin O'Brien (119) and Hamish Marshall (102) did the same against Middlesex in 2011.
