The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) saw a very interesting event when the Antigua Hawksbills and Guyana Amazon Warriors clashed with one another. Miguel Cummins, the seam bowler conceded 21 runs off one ball. As he tried to bowl his first ball, he bowled one no-ball after the other and got carted around as well to add insult to injury. Ultimately, one must note that he did recover to give only two more runs and finish his first and only over with 23 runs. He did not bowl again in the match.
In six overs, Guyana were 52 for two. Cummins first bowled a n0-ball to Denesh Ramdin. The next one was also a no-ball and Ramdin took a single. There was another no-ball after that, which was smashed for a six by Martin Guptill. Cummins followed it up with another no-ball and Guptill took a couple. Then finally, when he bowled his first legitimate ball, it was carted for another six He then followed that up with another n0-ball, off which a single was taken. Guyana posted a 200-plus total and went on to score
