- Sydney Thunder score lowest run total in T20 history in record-breaking defeat
- The Big Bash League side scored just 15 runs off 35 balls in loss to Adelaide
- Fans mocked the defeat ’embarrassing’ and a ‘disgrace’ by posting to Twitter
Fans have taken to social media in disbelief as Big Bash League side Sydney Thunder scored the lowest total runs ever in T20 history.
The Australian team hit a lowly 15 runs off just 35 balls in the defeat to Adelaide Strikers to write their name into the history books for all the wrong reasons.
Chasing a total of 140 at the Sydney Showground Stadium, Thunder were taken out thanks to five wickets in three balls from Henry Thornton and just 35 balls in total.
Sydney Thunder were absolutely humiliated and fans called it an embarrassment online
The embarrassing total bests Turkey’s 21 all out against the Czech Republic back in 2019 as the lowest score ever recorded in the short game format.
Fans were quick to jump on to Twitter to mock the pathetic score from the team, with one post stating: ‘How embarrassing Sydney Thunder…all out for 15…’
That theme of embarrassment continued with another account saying: ‘This is absolutely embarrassing & pathetic by the Sydney Thunder’. Attaching an animated GIF of someone going rather red to hammer home the point.
Fans took to social media to share their views on the embarrassing score from Sydney Thunder
Another felt that fans should be given their money back and tweeted: ‘Just embarrassing, refund the ticket price.’
There were some who couldn’t believe what there were seeing and said: What I have I just watched? A professional cricket team, Sydney Roar all out for 15. That is embarrassing.’
Others were even more damming of the team with one user calling them a ‘disgrace’, but did find a positive in the unwanted record by acknowledging the publicity the Big Bash League would get off the back of the match.
They posted: ‘Wow just wow…Sydney Thunder – what a disgrace!! The upside is the BBL will get international attention because of their truly pathetic performance.’
