Shoaib Bashir concedes 38 runs in one over to Dan Lawrence

The instance occurred on Monday in the Division One match of the County Championship between Surrey and Worcestershire

After debuting in Test cricket for England against India, Shoaib Bashir has added an unfortunate record to his name. 

Playing For Worcestershire in the Division One game of the County Championship against Surrey, he had toiled away for 2/137 in 37 overs. Dan Lawrence, another England Test player, took him to the cleaners with Surrey on 437/9. 

The first two sixes were hit straight over the bowler’s head. Lawrence didn’t stop there. Bashir continued to dish out balls in his slot, and the next three deliveries all went for six, however more towards long on and mid wicket than the straight boundary. 

Bashir missed joining the infamous list of bowlers who have conceded five sixes in an over in first-class cricket because the sixth ball, bowled from around the wicket to the right-hander, was wayward and went for five wides down the leg side. 

Then he bowled a no ball, for which the penalty is two runs in the County Championship, unlike Test cricket, where only one run is added to sundries if a bowler oversteps. Lawrence took a single on that ball, and the last valid ball was blocked out. 

Bashir was removed from bowling after that, and Lawrence finished with 175 in 223 balls, with Surrey notching up 490 in the first innings. 

Surrey are also at the top of points table in the 10-team County Championship after eight games with four wins, one loss and two draws. 

Earlier, Bashir had taken 17 wickets at an average of 33.4 and an economy of 3.4 in England’s Test tour to India after being given a surprise debut. Lawrence was also a part of that England squad in India.
