Breaking: Gone In 30 Mins, Team All-out For 15 Runs In 5 Overs, Lowest Score In T20 History
Sydney Thunder on Friday suffered the humiliation of crashing to the lowest-ever total in the history of T20 cricket after being dismissed for just 15 runs by Adelaide Strikers in a Big Bash match.
Chasing a 140-run target, Sydney Thunder were quite embarrassingly bundled out for 15 in 5.5 overs. Not known for performing well at their home ground, Thunder have earned an infamous record in front of their home spectators on the back of becoming the first-ever team to lose all their wickets within the powerplay of a T20 innings.
The shortest innings (by balls bowled) in the history of the format was hard to digest even for Adelaide Strikers as their players were short of words amid unprecedented bemusement by the happenings on a Friday night.
In addition to finding themselves in an elite list, Strikers have also done their NRR (Net Run Rate) a hell lot of favour by winning their second match of the season by a gargantuan 124-run margin.
While Thornton ran through the top-order en route his five-wicket haul for just three runs, Agar claimed four wickets and Matthew Short snapped one in 30 minutes of mindboggling cricket.
There were five ducks with number 10 batter Brendan Doggett managing four runs, the highest individual score for his team.
