A cricket scorecard from a Western Australia D grade competition is doing the rounds after fans spotted one of the most expensive overs ever.

Nathan Bennett was playing for the Kingsley-Woodvale Cricket Club against Sorrento-Duncraig and bowled an over he probably wishes he could forget after he was smacked for 50 runs.

Bennett was hit for eight consecutive sixes after bowling two no-balls.

Sorrento-Duncraig ran out comfortable winners after posting a formidable score of 6/276 after 40 overs.

Kinglsey-Woodvale could only muster 8/154 in reply.

Fortunately for Bennett, he was the second-highest run scorer for his team.

The question was posed on social media to whether this was the most expensive over in cricket history.

While Bennett's over could just be the most expensive in Australian cricket, it is not the most expensive in the game's history.

After the scorecard reached cricket fans around the world, it was uncovered a grade cricketer from across the Tasman Sea holds the record from back in 1990.

New Zealand cricketer Bert Vance was hit for a remarkable 77 runs off one over in first grade cricket.

Vance bowled a number of full-toss no balls and was hit for five consecutive sixes at one point.

In his first 17 balls, only one was legitimate as he was smacked all around the ground.

ESPN reports scorers became so confused during the chaos they were forced to consult with crowd members on what occurred.

The umpire also lost track and called the over after five legitimate deliveries.

To make matters worse, the match was later levelled with one ball to be bowled.

However, with scorers scrambling to determine the score, the batter blocked the ball.
