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.
