Cricket's worst collapse? UAE U19s go from 44-1 to 50 all out

Cricket stumps

This summer's Ashes series has been full of batting collapses, but nothing quite like the one suffered by United Arab Emirates Under-19s against Nepal.

Chasing 200 in a 50-over game, the UAE had made a good start in reaching 44-1.

Ten overs later, they were all out for 50 having lost nine wickets for six runs.

No batsman from number three down made a score of more than one and the final four wickets fell for no runs.

Of the 50 that were mustered, 32 were made by opening batsman Waruna Perera.

Nepal, for whom Sushil Kandel took 4-7 and Prem Tamang 2-0 from five balls, won by 149 runs.
