1/ 6

NZ managed just 26 runs against England in 1955. Strangely, the match seemed quite competitive in the first innings as the Kiwis scored 200 runs, while England made 246. In the second innings though, the Kiwis crumbled away and England didn’t even need to bat again.

Dating back to the colonial era, this match is an example of England’s dominance in the game. South Africa had a target of 319 runs to chase in the final innings, which was just too much. They were all out for just 30 runs as English bowler George Lohmann bagged eight wickets in the innings. wiki commons

England had put up a total of 438 in the first innings. It was likely they didn’t have to bat again. Facing the huge challenge, South Africa were all out for 30 runs in the first innings. In the follow-on, however, they showed a lot of courage to score 390 runs. wiki commons

This is one of the poorest matches for South Africa, in which they put a combined total of just 81 runs in two innings, 36 runs in the first and 45 in the second. Australia had to bat just once and their score of 153 was more than enough. Wiki commons

As hard as it was to face England in the early twentieth century, this was a poor show by Australia ever where they were all out for 36 runs. The match, however, could not be completed and hence ended in a draw. Getty
