The UAE women’s team consigned their Chinese counterparts to one of the heaviest defeats in international cricket on Sunday.
China were dismissed for a shocking low of 14 in a T20 tournament in Bangkok – the lowest ever score in a Twenty20 International match for men or women.
China were chasing UAE’s massive score of 203-3 but were bowled out inside an hour with 10 overs to spare at the Thailand T20 Smash for a 189-run defeat.
Esha Rohit top-scored for the UAE with 82. In reply, as many as six Chinese batters were dismissed for a duck with Hin Lili top-scoring with four.
It is not the first time China’s cricket team has fallen flat. In October last year, Chinese men’s team was dismissed for 26 against Nepal at a World Twenty20 qualifier.
The International Cricket Council had previously described China as a “strategic priority” and said it is working with the China Cricket Association to “achieve sustainable growth in one of the most complex and competitive sports markets in the world”, according to AFP.
