We thought Cricket is a batsman’s game until this happened


A County Cricket Team was recently bowled out for zero, breaking our perception that cricket is a batsman’s game.

You may not believe it, but it’s true. It is quite unusual for a team to be all-out for 0. But a county cricket team in England lost all it’s 10 wickets for 0 runs after facing 20 balls. They lost the game by a margin of 120 runs. ECB (England Cricket Board) reported this on 11th Feb, 2016. This unusual game happened during the Kent Regional finals of England Cricket Board’s national six-a-side championship. Reports say that it was a bowling pitch and was really difficult to bat on it. It was the Bapchild Cricket Club team that was all-out for 0 against the Christ Church University. The match also included a wicket hat-trick.

Christ Church player Mike Rose said: “We could not believe it, all they needed to do was hit a ball to get one run.

Before, the lowest total by a Cricket Club was just 3. However, in first-class cricket 6 is the lowest team total which was recorded by “The B’s” at the Lord’s ground in 1810. In Test, the lowest team total is 26 by New Zealand Cricket team against England in 1955.
