Cricket is known to favour batsmen. However, in an astonishing turn of events, English Cricket Club Beckenham CC was bowled out at a score of 18 runs in 11.2 overs in an innings that lasted only 49 minutes during a Shepherd Neame Kent Cricket League match. Following the target of 18 runs, Bexley CC won the match in 12 minutes with all 10 wickets in hand.

 

Beckenham’s total (18 runs) against Bexley was also club’s lowest score in their 152-year existence.

Scotland’s bowler Calum MacLeod, who had played 57 limited overs games for his country, was the star player of the match. Calum took six wickets and conceded five runs.
