Ten Ducks: Unbelievable! Kasaragod Under-19 Girls Team All Out for Four in Kerala
The bizarre scene had unfolded during Under-19 inter-district game when Kasaragod Under-19 girls team had lost all their ten batters who couldn’t score even a single run. However, the team managed to get four runs through extras against Wayanad team. Little would have many imagined that this would take place in Kerala as Kasaragod team has grabbed headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Interestingly, the Perinthalmanna Cricket Stadium in Malappuram, hosted a game on Wednesday (May 15) when Wayanad bowlers run riot.
So much so, it has emerged as one of the rarest stats which subsequently saw all ten batters were bowled. Besides, the not out batter has failed to open her account. However, Wayanad bowlers bowled at the one channel to keep sending Kasaragod’s batters back to the pavilion.
In response, Wayanad openers overhauled the paltry target of five runs in the very first over.
Thus Wayanad won the game convincingly by ten wickets before the news ‘spread like wildfire’.
Earlier, S Akshatha, who led Kasaragod won the toss and opted to bat first. However, what panned out has been humiliating for her team.
Kasaragod openers S Chaitra and K Veekshitha to much of our surprise have defended first 12 deliveries. But, they had faced the wrath when opponents skipper Nithya Loordh claimed three wickets in the third over.
Thereon, Kasaragod kept losing wickets at regular intervals. However, the relaxation from Wayanad bowlers has eventually helped them to open the team’s account.
However, this is not the first time that a team in the local tourney got folded out well under 10.
In 2016, during the Kent indoor championship game between Bapchild Cricket Club and Christ Church University at Canterbury in England, Bapchild which was chasing the target of 121 were bowled out for zero.
Anyway, we could expect many in the foreseeable future and this is how unique stats leave us baffled.
