Cape Town - Cricket followers in Britain were stunned at the weekend when a league team was remarkably bowled out for just three runs.

According to the Guardian's website, Wirral CC - who faced Haslington in a TACS Partnership Cheshire League Division Three match - were dismissed for the meagre total after setting out to chase down Haslington's 108.

One of Wirral's players, 24-year-old Matt Garrett, described the pitch as a "bit of a pudding of a wicket".

He said they were confident of reaching their 109-run victory target but some good line and length bowling and poor shot selection led to the bizarre total.

The only run was scored by the No 11 batsman, Connor Hodson.
