In 1990, on the last day of Wellington's Shell Trophy match between Canterbury and Christchurch. Where Bert Vance was given the over. The idea was to get them close to the target and then when they think they can win and hit freely we will start taking wickets.
So Bert Vance went for the over and threw 17 no-balls and 5 legitimate balls.To which the last batsman of Canterbury hit 77 runs. With 8 sixes and 6 fours. That many no-balls confused everyone even the umpire and they lost the count of legitimate balls. Hence Vance was only allowed to throw 5 balls.
The over was as follows - 0444664614106666600401
Everyone including Vance was so confused they lost the track to the score. That no one noticed Canterbury only needed 1 run in the last ball to win. But even they were confused and the batsman blocked the ball. The debate about who won went for hours and then Christchurch was the winner of the trophy.
