London: Calling it the worst defeat in the history of competitive cricket would probably not be wrong. Buckden Cricket Club suffered an embarrassing 258-run loss against Falcone XI in the Huntingdonshire County League Fourth Division match in 40 overs. Chasing the target of 261 runs, Buckden Cricket Club were all out for 2 runs in just 8.3 overs.
This dramatic match between the two teams was played at Sautry, Cambridge. In a match of the Fourth Division of the Huntingdonshire County League, Buckden Cricket Club won the toss and invited Falcone XI to bat first. Falcone XI set a target of 261 runs in front of Buckden, with the help of half-centuries from Faheem Shabbir Bhatti (65) and Murad Ali (67).
In response, Buckden’s team was all out in the most embarrassing manner in the history of county cricket, scoring just 2 runs. The big thing is that all the 10 batsmen of Buckden Cricket Club were dismissed without opening an account. The two runs that came were also due to extra runs. Amandeep Singh was the hero of Falcone XI, taking 6 wickets.
Amandeep Singh took 6 wickets in 4 overs without giving a single run. It was a shameful performance by BCC, who had to face defeat by 258 runs. It is also one of the worst defeats in professional cricket. Buckden Club captain Joel Kirshner said that he did not have 15 players available due to injury and family commitments, which led to his batsmen’s poor performance against Falcone XI.
Joel said in a conversation with BCC Sport, ‘Initially we had only 8 players aged 15-20. Graham Pierce came after 30 overs because he was working. 15 of our players are not available, two or three are injured while others have family commitments. We are not such a bad team. When we last played against Falcone XI, we lost by just 9 runs.
