Can a bowler concede 92 runs in just four deliveries? It sounds unbelievable, but it is true.

A Bangladesh club cricketer peppered the field with no balls and wides to concede 92 runs in four legal deliveries during the Dhaka Second Division Cricket League.

Lalmatia Club's Sujon Mahmud bowled 15 no balls to go with 13 wides that also raced to the boundary in his side's match against Axiom Cricketers.

His four legal deliveries went for 12 runs as Axiom won by 10 wickets.

Lalmatia had been dismissed for 88 after being put into bat with the team unimpressed at several umpiring decisions that went against them in the match on Tuesday.

"It started at the toss," Lalmatia general secretary Adnan Rahman Dipon told the Dhaka Tribune.

"My captain was not allowed to see the coin and we were sent to bat first and ... the umpires' decisions went against us."

The tournament has been plagued by umpiring controversy and Fear Fighters Sporting Club's Tasnim Hasan did something similar on Monday, conceding 69 runs in seven legitimate deliveries to protest against the umpiring.

The most runs conceded in an over in international game is 36 – a six from every ball – which has happened in both limited-overs formats. It has happened twice in first-class cricket but never in a Test match.

The most runs off an over in a first-class match is 77.

Wellington's Robert Vance conceded 77 runs in an over against Canterbury in 1990.
