Abdur Rehman created a dubious world record by registering completed figures of 0-0-8-0 in an international cricket match. The Pakistan left-arm spinner bowled three above the waist no-balls in-a-row against Bangladesh in the eighth match of the Asia Cup 2014 at Mirpur on March 4, 2014.

He now holds the record for giving away the most runs in a any international match across formats without registering a legal delivery.

Rehman came in and his first delivery was way wide on the off side and at head height to Imrul Kayes. It was signaled as a no-ball. The next delivery was a above the waist delivery and Kayes pulled it away on the leg side. The fielder caught the ball at the deep mid-wicket boundary, but that too was signaled as a no-ball. But oddly, he was not removed from the attack.

But the next delivery was also above the waist and Anamul pulled it away for a four towards deep mid-wicket. He was then banned from bowling in the match. Rehman bowled three no-balls in-a-row above the waist height and was barred from bowling without registering a legal delivery.

Below is a list of of bowlers who have finished a match by not registering a legal delivery across formats:

Bowler Overs Maidens Runs Wickets Opp Format Year
Abdur Rehman 0 0 8 0 Bangladesh ODI 2014
Collins Obuya 0 0 5 0 Bangladesh ODI 2006
David Gower 0 0 4 0 New Zealand Test 1986
Dhammika Prasad 0 0 2 0 South Africa Test 2012
Mansoor Akhtar 0 0 1 0 West Indies ODI 1984
Allan Lamb 0 0 1 0 West Indies Test 1986
Jimmy Adams 0 0 1 0 Zimbabwe ODI 2000
