Sitting Ducks: All batsmen get out on zero!
This would go down in the history of Harris Shield in cricket. In what might be called the rarest of the rare instance, no batsman of a team was able to score any runs in a cricket match.
The losing team and the team lost by a massive 754 runs in an U-16 Harris Shield game in Mumbai.
The game was played between Swami Vivekanand School and Children’s Welfare Centre School from suburban Andheri. While the Swami Vivekanand International School, Borivali scored a formidable 61-4 in 45 overs, none of the batsmen from Children’s Welfare Centre School could score a single run. All of them got out on zero. The team got seven runs in extras and byes.
While Swami’s Meet Mayekar remained unbeaten on 338 off 134 balls with seven sixes and 56 fours, the two bowlers Alok Pal (6-3) and Varad Vaze (2-3) finished the game in just six over taking all the wickets!
