Cape Town - It's not always about sixes and fours, and a club cricketer in New Zealand made waves over the weekend for his marathon innings of 0 not out.
According to the Sportskeeda website, Otago Country captain Fraser Wilson faced 119 balls while trying to save his side in a Hawke Zone Cup elimination match against Southland in Alexandra.
According to the report, Wilson could only see out of one eye for the duration of his innings, which lasted more than two hours.
"I had a bung eye all weekend. I was putting a contact lens in and I dropped it on the concrete and it picked up some dirt, so I had an infected eye. I was playing with one eye the whole game. I had to open my stance up to pull my right eye around because I could only see out of my right eye,” he said.
Unfortunately, Wilson's efforts could not prevent a defeat for his side.
Having come to the crease at 99/6, Wilson batted for 126 minutes.
But, in the end, he ran out of partners as Otago Country were bowled out on the fourth last ball of the game.
In 1999, New Zealand fast bowler Geoff Allott batted for 101 minutes and 77 balls to record the longest duck in Test cricket history against South Africa.
