Kent indoor team bowled out for zero

A Kent indoor cricket side have become unfortunate record holders after being bowled out for 0 off just 20 balls.

Bapchild CC had an innings and day to forget as successive batsman failed to get off the mark against Christ Church University during a recent match in Canterbury.

The dreaded score no team wants to post

The rare result came during the recent Kent Finals of the ECB six-a-side Indoor National Club Championship.

Christ Church batted first and posted 120 in the quarter-final fixture before bowlers Fraser McWhinnie and Philip Semmens shared the honours with three wickets apiece to tear apart the Bapchild innings.

McWhinnie claimed his trio of scalps in 12 balls with Semmens needing just eight deliveries to take his three wickets.

Christ Church spinner Mike Rose told the Crawley Observer: “We all couldn’t really believe it to be honest, bowling a team out for 0, especially indoors.

“I think I was the only fielder to touch the ball off the bat!”

Christ Church later ran out tournament winners and will look to continue their heroics when they face Sussex winners Brighton & Hove CC in Sunday’s county playoff.
