Somerset village cricket team bowled out for six runs

A village cricket team from Somerset has been bowled out for six runs in 12 overs.

Barrington CC's 1st XI were chasing the 195 scored by Huish & Langport in the Division Two Somerset Cricket League match on Saturday.

Barrington won the toss and put the home team in to bat.

Later, they managed the first three runs without losing a wicket, but eight batsmen later fell for ducks. The highest individual score was two runs.

Huish & Langport scored 195 for seven in 45 overs, with Chris Dean scoring 46 and Jonny Watts hitting 32.

'Truly fantastic'

After Barrington opener Steven Redwood was caught for two runs they slipped to three for four.

Langport's captain Dominic Shillabeer took seven wickets for two runs and fellow bowler Steven Bown took three for three.

In a message on the club's website, Mr Shillabeer wrote: "Well, Well, Well!!!

"What to say - Huish and Langport delivered a performance of a lifetime when Barrington suffered a truly humbling defeat at Field Road.

"Electing to bowl first Barrington bowled incredibly well on a difficult track.

"Truly a fantastic performance - everyone who played that day will remember it and should be proud of the part they played."

The lowest ever score in county cricket was when Northamptonshire managed 12 in a match against Gloucestershire at Gloucester in 1907.
