BBL 2022-23: Sydney Thunders Holds Record for the Lowest Team Total in Men’s T20 History

In the on going Big Bash League BBL 2022-23, Sydney Thunder, the league’s highest title club, was bowled out for just 15 runs against Adelaide Strike registering a shameful record for the lowest team total in T20 history.

In the fifth match of the Big Bash 2022-23 season, Sydney Thunder, the most successful club in the league, folded before 6 overs of the power play. Thunder’s 10 wickets ended in 15 runs off just 35 balls in this world’s best league. But the team has a World Cup winning opener like Alex Hales and a devastating batsman like Riley Russo.

Rashid Khan’s Adelaide striker won the toss and elected to bat first at the Sydney Snow Ground Stadium. Apart from Chris Lynn and Colin de Grandhomme, none of the batsmen scored 20 runs. Lin’s 36 from 27 balls and Grandhomme’s 33 runs from 24 balls put the scoreboard of the strikers at 139 for 9 wickets.

Afghan bowler Fazle Haque Farooqui took 3 wickets for Sydney Thunder. Besides, three Aussie bowlers Gurinder Sandhu, Daniel Sam and Brendan Doggett took 2 wickets each.

In response, the best T20 batsmen in the world like Alex Hales, Riley Russo saw the Adelaide striker bowling cannon from the start. Two openers Alex Hales and Matthew Gilkes returned to the pavilion without opening the run book.

Subsequent batters were also unsuccessful. No one could play more than 1 over. The highest individual score in the innings was only 4. And the second maximum additional 3 5 batters back to Sajghar for zero runs.

However, the bowling attack on this day was not the world’s best leg spinner Rashid Khan. Alex Hales’ team finished last with three unknown Aussie bowlers.

Matthew Short, Wes Agar and Thornton’s devastating bowling gave the 4-time BBL champions a bitter taste of defeat in a humiliating loss of 124 runs. Henry Thornton was man of the match with 5 wickets for just 3 runs

This is the record for the lowest run in men’s T20 history. The previous record for the lowest score was held in a match between Turkey and the Czech Republic. Turkey was bowled out for 21 runs against the Czech Republic in the 2019 match.

And, the lowest run total in all T20Is is 6, but that is in women’s T20I matches. The lowest totals are Maldivian women and Mali women.
