Cricket News: 286 Runs Off One Ball- Most Funniest Record In Cricket History
The match is played way back in 1894 between Western Australia and Victoria in an Australian First Class Competition. The first ball of the match was a heavy strike by the batsman into a three-pronged branch of a tall Jarrah tree which was inside the field. The home team appealed for lost ball because it was absolutely out of the reach by hand. But, the umpires disagreed because it was in sight which meant it could not be lost, and everybody could see the exact place where the ball actually got stuck. But, the intelligent batsmen didn’t stop running between the wickets for making as many runs as possible. When the West Australians sent for an axe to cut down the tree, no axe was obtainable. Then, the team came up with a brilliant idea, and somebody from the home team brought out a rifle and tried to shoot the ball from the tree. After several attempts, the ball was finally dislodged by a bullet of that rifle from the tree and it fell onto the outfield. No one from the fielders was even bothered to catch it out of their frustration. And, by the time the ball traveled back to the wicket-keeper, the super intelligent and hardworking opening pair for Victoria completed running between the wickets 286 times. When 286 runs were given by the umpire, Victoria declared their first inning. That again made a record for the fewest balls played in one inning. Later, Victoria won the match.
