South Africa's Robin Peterson bowled the most expensive over by a full-member bowler

It has been forty-six years since One-Day International cricket came into existence. Since then, ODI cricket has witnessed a number of records being created. Every player's dream is to get into the record books one day.

However, this article lists those records that the owners would like to expunge from cricketing history. 

#1 Robin Peterson, South Africa - Most expensive over by a Full-Member bowler

Robin Peterson holds the infamous record of most runs conceded by a Full-Member nation player in one over in One Day International history. Sri Lanka's Thisera Perera hit South Africa's left-arm-spinner for 5 sixes and a four in a match between Sri Lanka and South Africa in 2013 at Pallekele.

Peterson conceded runs in this sequence in the 33rd over: 6, Wd, 6, 6, 6, 4, 6. Robin

The player conceded 35 runs in an over, which is the second worst over in ODIs. Van Bunge of Netherlands conceded 36 runs in an over in a World Cup Match against South Africa in 2007.

Despite conceding 35 runs in one over, Robin Peterson ended with an impressive match figure of 1/51 in seven overs. South Africa won the game convincingly by 56 runs. Peterson retired from all forms of the game on November 9, 2016.
