Pakistan dethrone Kenya from the top spot in a unique record

Pakistan started their innings with a marathon over by Shehan Madushanka in which he conceded 9 runs before bowling a legitimate delivery. 

He started his over with a no ball and then bowled two white balls. The next one added 5 runs to Pakistan’s total as it was wide along with a boundary. 

His fifth attempt was also declared a wide, leading to nine runs without any legal delivery by a bowler. However, he managed to control his wayward line and length and completed the over without further extras.
