In an unbelievable turn of events, an Under-19 inter-district match of Kasaragod girls team against Wayanad at the Perinthalmanna Cricket stadium in Malappuram district were all out for only four runs. However, more unimaginable was that all the batsmen returned to the pavilion for ducks.

Kasaragod skipper S Akshatha won the toss and decided to bat against Wayanad. Meanwhile, she wouldn’t have imagined before the toss that something like this can happen. More staggering was that all the batters were out bowled – a rare sight in the history of cricket.
Despite the girls failing to open their accounts, the Wayanad bowlers conceded four extras. This allowed Kasaragod to open their scoreboard. The Kasaragod openers K Veekshitha and S Chaitra managed to survive the first two overs. But the match slipped from their hands from the third over when Wayanad captain Nithya Loordh returned with three wickets in that over.
It took the Wayanad openers just one over to successfully chase the target of five runs as they beat their opponents by 10 wickets. Meanwhile, this is not the first time that a team in the local tourney got folded out well under 10. In 2016, during the Kent indoor championship game between Bapchild Cricket Club and Christ Church University at Canterbury in England, Bapchild were all out for zero during chasing a target of 121 runs.
