Wirral, from north-west England, had 10 ducks and only one batsman with a run off the bat against Haslington in a Cheshire League Third Division match.

London:

England's cricketers may have suffered the embarrassment of a World Twenty20 defeat by the Netherlands and a 5-0 Ashes thrashing in Australia but even they were never bowled out for three as has happened to one club side.

Wirral, from north-west England, were dismissed for just three against Haslington in a Cheshire League Third Division match - with extras the top-scorer courtesy of two leg-byes.

There were 10 ducks in the Wirral innings, with No 11 Connor Hodson, supposedly their worst batsman, the only member of the visitors' side to score a run off the bat.

That Wirral managed three was something of an achievement after they were reduced to eight down for no runs, in an innings that lasted fewer than 10 overs.

Haslington won the match by 105 runs after making only 108 themselves before, as the Stoke Sentinel newspaper reported, "the real drama unfolded after the tea interval".

Wirral's official Twitter feed saw them issue pleas to several ex-England players, including former captain Michael Vaughan and popular television pundit David Lloyd for "a few hours coaching" under the hashtag of #weneedit.
