There are several records that are made and broken by batters in different tournaments and formats each year.

Bowler  Runs Batter Over Score
Kieron Pollard 32 Darren Bravo 6,6,6,6,2,6
Wahab Riaz 32 Andre Russell 6,1nb,1,1,6,6,5nb,6
James Neesham 31 Evin Lewis 6,4,4,6, Wide,6,4
Kemar Roach 30 Brendon McCullum 6,4,7nb,2,4,6,1
Jerome Taylor 30 Keiron Pollard 6,4,7nb,3,1,3nb,2,4
  1. Jerome Taylor (30 Runs)

Jerome Taylor stands on the fifth position when he gave 30 runs to Kieron Pollard in one over. It was indeed one of the most expensive overs that a team had to lift. The match was between Jamaica Tallawahs and Trinbago Knight Riders in the year of 2019. Taylor was sent to bowl in the 18th over so that he could decrease the number of runs in the over as he was an experienced player. But Pollard ruined the expectations of the team by making 30 runs in the same over and taking his team closer to victory. 

  1. Kemar Roach (30 Runs)

On the fourth stand we have Kemar Roach who is another reliable bowler for his team. He also dealt a very expensive over with 30 runs. The match was again between the Jamaica Tallawahs and the Trinbago Knight Riders in the 2018 season. With Brendon McCullum on the crease, Roach and the rest of the team had serious doubts about the over as it is. When McCullum started playing the over, the number of runs he started hitting were pretty high. It was the 19th over and thus the team lost its morale. McCullum took the most advantage of the free hits as well and got his team towards making a strong score that had to be later chased by the Tallawahs. 

  1. James Neesham (31 Runs)

James Neesham holds the third position. He gave 31 runs in one single over to Evin Lewis. Although it was just the third over of the match, it proved to be a heavy one for Neesham’s team. Lewis was batting on behalf of the St. Kitts to chase the score that was made by the Trinbago Knight Riders. With this heavy over, Lewis took his team towards a tie by the end of the last over. In the super over, the St. Kitts won the match with the superb batting performance of Evin Lewis. 

  1. Wahab Riaz (32 Runs)

Wahab Riaz is the bowler in the second position. He gave 32 runs in one single over to Andre Russell. The fault of Riaz is little. Russell is like a hurricane and there are very few bowlers in the world who can actually stop him if he is in form and control of the game. In 2021, Riaz faced Russell in the 19th over and Russell smashed him down with 4 sixes and 1 four. There were also two no balls and 3 singles that led to the collection of these many runs. It was also the fastest CPL that CPL had seen until now. St. Lucia team definitely lost the match that day. 

  1. Kieron Pollard (32 Runs)

At the first position we have none other than Kieron Pollard. He has the ability to do some hard hitting on the field when he is actually in the mood. Pollard has made some unbelievable scores on the cricket fields in different formats and tournaments in his entire career. In this match, Pollard proved himself to be one of the best batsmen when he made 32 runs in one over and made a point to secure the win for his team. His 32-run score in one over gave the leverage that his team exactly needed to come over the top.
