PSL 2021: Jack Wildermuth concedes most runs in an over in PSL history

Debuts can go horribly wrong and for Australian Jack Wildermuth, it just went worse in his Pakistan Super League debut for Quetta Gladiators. Bowling in the 19th over of the game, he was smoked all over the park by Danish Aziz, conceding 33 runs in one over, the most for any bowler in PSL’s history. The previous record was held by another Aussie Dan Christain while bowling for Lahore Qalandars. 

The Brisbane Heat player was asked to bowl the over as the original bowler, Naseem Shah pulled out before starting the overdue to cramps. Aziz, who had just arrived at the crease, barely playing five balls in his innings till then, got a four on the first ball through a Chinese cut. 

Post that though, all hell broke loose as he smashed one six in the leg side with sheer wrist power, then went on to hit one over long-off after shimmying down the crease. On the fourth ball, he was offered a full ball in the slot and he maximised it to hit a six over the bowler’s head. Frustrated, Wildermuth tried a slower one, but to no reprieve, as it was a no-ball for height and was hit over square for the fourth six of the over by Aziz. 

The last two balls were anti comatic in the manner that only four runs came from them after such belligerent hitting in the overs prior to them. Aziz had scored 45 off just 12 balls and was heading to what could have been the fastest PSL fifty, but was bowled by a Khurram Manzoor delivery on the fourth ball of the 20th over. The 53 runs conceded by Wildermuth was also the joint-most runs conceded by a bowler in a three-over spell in PSL. He equalled his compatriot from Quetta, Zahid Mahmood's record. 

It was Aziz’s innings that put the Karachi Kings in a favourable position in a do or die match. The Kings set up a target of 177 for the Gladiators.
