In a historic occurrence during the Tamil Nadu Premier League (TNPL) 2023, Abhishek Tanwar, delivered the most expensive final ball of the T20 history. A total of 18 runs were conceded in that fateful over, with Tanwar bowling three no-balls and one wide ball.
Abhishek Tanwar’s dreadful 20th over began with conceding 8 runs off the first five balls. Nevertheless, he managed to dismiss Sanjay Yadav on the final delivery of the over. However, the celebrations were cut short when it was revealed that Tanwar had overstepped, resulting in the delivery being ruled a no-ball.
Following this, Tanwar committed another no-ball, allowing Sanjay Yadav to hit a six. To make matters worse, Tanwar delivered yet another no-ball, granting Sanjay Yadav two runs and returning to strike. The woes continued for Tanwar as he delivered a wide ball, immediately followed by another no-ball, resulting in Sanjay Yadav smashing yet another six.
