A cricket team was bowled out for ZERO in just 20 balls in an indoor championship match.

It was a six-a-side match between Christ Church University and Bapchild Cricket Club in 2016 Kent indoor championship at Canterbury, England.

Christ Church scored 120 runs for the loss of 1 wicket in the determined 12 overs.

In reply, Bapchild were bowled out for 0. None of the batsmen were able to get off the mark in the innings. Christ Church bowler Fraser McWhinnie and Philip Semmens picked up 3-wickets each while McWhinnie collected a hat-trick. McWhinnie picked up 2 wickets in the last two balls of his first over and completed his hat-trick in the first ball of his next over.  

Christ Church spinner Mike Rose told the Crawley Observer, “We all couldn’t really believe it, to be honest, bowling a team out for 0, especially indoors as all they needed to do was hit a wall to get one run. I think I was the only fielder to touch the ball off the bat!”   Rose was not required to bowl in that match.

Rose added further, “Indoors I think we bowled a team out for about 13 back with Three Bridges but I think it’s the first time it’s happened in the history of the Kent league and maybe even indoor cricket. But outdoors we have bowled teams out for less than 100, but certainly not 0!”

Rose was feeling excited after winning the title for his university team. He said, “We very pleased. And it’s not just the cricket team but the whole unit as it’s the first ever student team to be champions of the league so it’s some achievement.”
