Test Cricket is a game of patience and glorious uncertainties. We have witnessed that sometimes it’s the batsmen who are dominating the bowlers and sometimes it’s the other way round. There have been many instances when a top class Test team with the remarkable batting orders was blown away by their opposition bowlers quite cheaply and they have succumbed to their lowest ever score.
On March 28, 1955, New Zealand won the toss and opted to bat after first, they posted 200 runs in their 1st innings. England responded well and took a lead of 46 runs. But the second innings of New Zealand turned out to be a nightmare. It was one of the saddest days in the history of New Zealand cricket as the Kiwis were bowled out for 26 runs in their 2nd innings.
It is the lowest ever Test score by any team till date. Eight of New Zealand's batsmen failed to score more than one run as the team got all out in 27 overs. England won the match comfortably by an innings and 20 runs.
