Ishant Sharma has entered the record books for thw wrong reasons. He has delivered the most expensive over by an Indian bowler in One-Day Internationals (ODIs) as he conceded 30 runs in the 48th over of the third game between India and Australia. Interestingly, Sharma’s current team-mate, Yuvraj Singh, also conceded 30 in an over in the past when Dimitri Mascarenhas hit him for five sixes in 2007.
 
Needing 44 from 18 balls, James Faulkner hit four six, a boundary and a couple in the over. Below is a description of how the over unfolded.
 
Ishant Sharma to James Faulkner
 
47.1 ovs
 
Ishant ran in and bowled the delivery outside wide off-stump. Faulkner somehow manage to fetch that delivery and connected it well. The ball flew over extra-cover for a boundary.
 
47.2 ovs
 
Ishant pitched this short and Faulkner just smashed it over mid-wicket and the ball sailed over the fence by a huge distance metres. Umpires had to call for a new ball as the older one never returned. With ten coming from that over, the bowler was already under pressure.
 
47.3 ovs
 
After a brief break in getting another ball, Ishant ran in an bowled a full-length delivery in the slot for Faulkner to clobber it. The right-hander didn’t miss that opportunity and heaved it straight over the bowler’s head for consecutive maximums. With 16 already conceded, the fans had still not given hope, expecting a miracle or two
 
47.4 ovs
 
This time Faulkner goes for a wild swing on the leg side and gets two runs as the ball is fielded at deep square-leg.

 
47.5 ovs
 
Ishant just doesn’t get his line in place. He drops it short again and Faulkner slaps it again. The ball didn’t fly from the meat of the bat but he had got enough power on the shot to send it back in the stands.
 
47.6 ovs
 
The spectators and viewers just closed their eyes and to everyone’s horror he repeated similar delivery and yet again the ball sailed over for a six.
 
What followed?
 
Dhoni got Ravichandran Ashwin to bowl the penultimate over who conceded just five runs and kept the Men in Blue in hunt with nine required off the last over. In the last over by Vinay Kumar, Voges gave the strike to Faulkner by picking a single. Faulkner then got a couple and finished the proceeding by hitting a six on the third ball to script a sensational win.
