2. South Africa Women vs Bermuda Women, 2008
In a World Cup qualifying game in 2008, Bermuda Women took on South Africa Women in Stellenbosch. It was always going to be a tough ask for the Bermuda women to match up with the quality of their opponents, but what transpired was completely unexpected.
Bermuda batted first and only three batswomen got off the mark in the whole innings, all of them scoring 1 run each. Courtesy 10 generous extras from the bowling unit, Bermuda could manage double digits in the game and got bowled out for 13 runs in 18 overs. Skipper Linda Menzer batted 48 deliveries for her one run.
It took just 4 deliveries for South Africa to achieve the target, winning the game by a whopping 10 wickets and 296 balls remaining. International cricket history would perhaps not see anything of sorts again.
