Sydney Thunder were dismissed for 15 – the lowest score in men’s Twenty20 history – as they were beaten by the Adelaide Strikers in the Big Bash League on Friday.
Chasing 140 to win, Thunder was knocked out in just 35 balls, with No. 10 Brendan Doggett leading with four.
Five players ducked, including England’s T20 World Cup winner and opener Alex Hales.
The previous lowest score was Turkey’s 21 against the Czech Republic in 2019.
Strikers pace setter Henry Thornton took 5-3 and Wes Agar 4-6 as they earned a 124-point victory over the abject Thunder.
They had posted a reasonable 139-9 from their 20 overs but tore apart Thunder’s batting lineup, with the hosts down to 9-6 and then 10-8.
Thunder’s only limit came from an inside edge from Brendan Doggett in the penultimate inning of the game, which gave him the best score of four.
Their 5.5 over sleeves are the shortest sleeves in men’s T20 history.
“I feel like I have to retire now. I don’t think I’m getting any better than this,” Thornton told Channel Seven.
“I honestly can’t believe what just happened. I think everyone here probably doesn’t know what happened either. It was amazing.”
