How many tableaus of batting collapse in cricket could you illustrate in your mind? Well, certainly there could be not one like the one that happened in England club cricket on Monday.
It can be weirdest or most embarrassing for a team who is batting when someone would watch the scorecard, tumbled down at a certain point where it showed High Wycombe, a club side of England chasing 189 lost the match after whistling along at 186 for 3.
All that happened when opposition fast bowler Keiron Jones picked up four wickets in four balls in the penultimate over of the match and ended without conceding a run!
Last but not the least, the rest of the spine tingling action was yet to come. As Peterborough Telegraph reported, the last over of the match was bowled by the 16 year old off spinner Danyaal Malik.
Now, the first ball was reverse swept for a single, and then the next four balls saw the ultimate destruction, High Wycombe lost what they left in hand. The rest of the three wickets fall and an astonishing victory was sealed.
With that, Peterborough won the match and also the tournament – the ECB National Club Championship.
Not even relevant to mention now, the ultimate showdown of batting collapse was exhibited in the land of England, who scored the highest total in one day international cricket not so while ago. People kept thinking whether they could topple even the 481 runs in an innings against Australia in sooner or later phase of time.
