Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Sami earned the dubious distinction of bowling the longest over in One-day Internationals during the Asia Cup match against Bangladesh in Colombo on Thursday.

The 23-year-old sent down seven wides and four no balls taking 17 deliveries to complete his second over against Bangladesh in the last Super League match of the tournament.

Sami, who started with a wicket maiden, conceded 22 runs in that over and finished with figures of two for 38 in 8.2 overs.

The dubious record earlier stood in the name of Bangladesh's Hasibul Hossein, who required 14 balls to complete his over against England in the 2000 ICC Champions Trophy in Nairobi.
