10. Finland against Denmark (FIN in DEN 3 T20Is)
This match was Finland’s 2nd T20 match against Denmark in a 3-match series with that they won the toss and decided to field first.
As batting first Denmark goes with a good start and with the help of Hamid Shah’s 49 and Taranjit’s Bharaj 59, Denmark set a total of 171/5.
The target was good enough to defend but when Finland’s inning started, it was not of a great inning for them.
Finland’s innings were stopped in their tracks for mere 33 runs. Their whole batting line-up just collapsed and every bowler from team Netherland got a wicket.

9. Turkey against Austria (Continental Cup)
Turkey won the toss and elected to bat first and entered the stage with a positive mindset but, it was completely broken by the bowling attack from Austria.
The whole Turkish team was wiped out in only 8.5 overs scoring only 32 runs.
Austria won that match in just 2.4 overs without losing a single wicket.
8. Mali against Kenya (ICC Men’s T20 Sub Region Qualifier)
In the match against Kenya, Team Mali goes to bat first but this was the worst they could face. The entire team finished with a score of 30 in 10.4 overs. It happened because of the strong bowling performance from Kenya’s top bowler Peter Langat who took 6 wickets in that match.
7. Tripura against Jharkhand (Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy)
The match was set against Jharkhand as Jharkhand won the toss and was elected to field first. With that Tripura’s opening pair arrived and was sent back in an instant.
The whole team was stopped at the low score of 30 runs in 11 overs all because of the great 5-wicket haul from Jharkhand’s Mihir Diwakar.
With this low score, Jharkhand won that match without losing a single wicket in just 3.2 overs.

6. Mali against Rwanda (ICC Men’s T20 Sub Region Qualifier)
Another bad performance from Mali as they scored only 30 runs again in 12.3 overs. The whole batting line-up was crushed completely as there were only 2 boundaries in those 30 runs and 12 overs.
The Mali team was completely overwhelmed by the bowling attack from Rwanda and they won that match easily.
5. Thailand against Malaysia (Quadrangular T20I Series)
In this match, Thailand won the toss and elected to bat first but this was their worst decision because the whole team was demolished by Malaysia’s bowling attack and was topped by mere 30 runs in 13 overs.
In the second inning, Malaysia won that match easily by losing only 1 wicket in 4 overs.
4. Turkey against Luxembourg (Continental Cup)
By winning the toss Turkey elected to bat first and the opening pair arrived on the pitch but were sent back as fast as they came on the field. Turkey’s inning finished in the 12th over and they only managed to score 28 runs.
In the second inning, Turkey retaliated by taking 2 early wickets but the total was so low that they can’t hold off the other team.
Luxembourg won that match by losing 2 wickets in 3 overs.

3. Lesotho against Uganda (ICC Men’s T20 Sub Region Qualifier)
Lesotho won the toss and decided to bat first but this decision backfired and the whole team got eliminated with a low score of 26 runs in 13 overs.
It was thanks to the bowling attack done by Dinesh Nakrani who took 6 wickets and completely stop Lesotho’s team on their tracks.
2. Turkey against the Czech Republic (Continental Cup)
Another upsetting from Team Turkey in the 2019 Continental Cup and this is the third time that Turkey has their name on this list and all these low-scoring innings happened in the same year and same tournament. It must have been a nightmare for that team.
In this match, the Czech Republic won the toss and elected to bat first and they scored a huge total of 278/4 in their 20 overs. But that was not all. Because of this huge total, the Turkish batting line-up just fell short and completely destroyed at mere 21 runs in 9 overs.
–Now time for Rank 1 and I was shocked to see all these low-scoring matches there are but in the match on Rank 1, I saw it’s highlighted and it was like a complete annihilation of the other team’s batting lineup.

1. Sydney Thunder against Adelaide Strikers (Big Bash League)
As Adelaide Strikers won the toss and decided to bat first, they managed to score a decent or defendable score of 139 runs by losing 9 wickets.
But when the second inning started, wickets felt like catching practice with the wicketkeeper. Both Strikers bowlers Henry Thomson and Wes Agar destroyed the entire Thunder team.
Thomson took a 5-wicket haul and Wes Agar took 4 wickets and the whole Thunder’s team was stopped on the lowest score of all time on just 15 runs in 6 overs.
Just 15 runs on an international level are something that you won’t get to see regularly so it was the Lowest Score in the History of Cricket.
