All Out For Six: The Most Miserable International Cricket Score Of All Time

Imagine a score so low, the opposition chased your entire total in four balls.

That's what happened in a Twenty20 cricket match between the Mali and Rwanda women's teams in the Rwandan capital, Kigali, overnight.

In the first innings, right-handed Mali opener Mariam Samake did her best to lay a platform for the visitors with her solid knock of one run from six balls.

But her teammates couldn't capitalise on the solid start. At all. Not even a bit. In fact the rest of them were out for ducks. Yep, nine straight quackers.

Which sounds like something you might see crossing a country road, but no, it was an actual cricket scorecard, as you can see below.

Indeed, extras top-scored for Mali with five.

In response, the Rwanda openers Uwimbabazi and Nyirankundineza ensured they would have first use of the showers, knocking off the runs in just four balls.

Side note: Rwandan Scrabble would be a very cool game.

Rwanda is currently ranked 30th on the International Cricket Council's list of women's T20 nations. Mali does not make the 54-nation list as it has not played enough games to qualify.

Or, sadly, faced enough balls.
