You can't have more than 10 outs in an innings, regardless of the format.

You honestly think this? FMD. BTW, I'm wondering if in Baseball there has ever been an instance of 4 balls in a row, perhaps intentionally? That would be crazy if it did occur and I would love to see some footage if it exists!

"For (saint) Francis' Sake". It's a religious term.

Close, the S is for soul not sake though.

You are right. I will ask a mathematician about the probability of 10 wickets in an 50-over innings.
