New Delhi: Anything shocking can happen on the cricket field at any time. Sometimes very big scores are made, and sometimes big teams are settled cheaply. Sometimes new players wreak havoc, sometimes experienced veterans also flop. But hardly anyone would have imagined what happened in the match between Thailand and Philippines. A match where only one team could score only 9 runs and the other team finished the game in 4 balls.
Obviously this match was not between any big teams, otherwise sensation would have spread in the cricket world. It was a match played between the teams of small and new countries learning the edge of cricket. This shocking match took place between the teams of Philippines and Thailand in the SEA Games Women’s T20 Cricket Competition being played in Cambodia’s city of Pinom Pehn.
