    One of my worst games ever

    Infact, it might be the worst ever, it was a school match here's what happened....

    I come in at number three, and after leaving a wide one i come down the pitch, hit it out the middle of the bat with every bit of muscle I had, and i was caught at extra cover.

    Despite bowling a better line, I managed to complete one over and get hit for twelve. althogh I did get a faint edge of some tailender, it wasnt given.

    I missed one great run out oppurtunity, just letting the ball go a bit late.

    and, probably fortunately on the luck I had, no catches came my way.

    so, lets look at this again

    Batting - Head 0 (2) b N Price c J Drizen mins 1 S/R 0

    Bowling - Head 1-0-12-0

    0 Run outs

    0 Catches.

    Pretty bad? Tell us about your worst game, if you wouldnt mind

    Cheer up. It's not that bad.
    I once bowled a no ball which was hit for four, then was smacked over my head for 6 off my first legal ball, which happened to be the winning runs. Leaving me with amazing figures of 0.1-0-11-0

    I thought that extras dont actually go on your total amount of runs conceded, so by my reckoning, its actually 10 off 0.1, leaving you with a slightly improved econ. of 60

    But Im probably wrong

    No-balls and wides have counted against the bowler since the 2000 Code revision.

    Well that makes sense, but overthrows go against them, don't they? And they don't get awarded wickets for drops LOl I'm just being pedantic

    Worst game of backyard cricket I had...

    Was a game of driveway cricket. I caught someone out so I got to bat. The players crossed so I was at the non-strikers end. The other batsman hit the ball and I was run out :S Everyone agreed I should be given another go. First ball up and I get clean bowled. But i'm given not out as we have the golden duck rule.

    Second ball I heave a big edge and get caught out - kind of a hat trick against me!

    As far as comps go. Playing for the school when I was 12. Opened the batting but was run out without facing a ball. Managed to take a wicket from my 2 overs that I was allowed but for 20 runs

    In another match I made 3, missed 2 run outs and a catch.

    The worst game i played in was when i was bowled the fourth of my four alloted overs and it was the last of the innings. Although they had no chance of winning it was still very poor. I kept bowling on middle stump and because of the pitch it kept seaming down leg-side and kept been called wide and finally when i got one straight it was a no-ball. II then reduced my run up dramatically down to a from 14 steps to ONE and finally was able to bowl the fifth legal ball of the over. On the last ball the batter hit the ball straight back at me and i dropped it...easiest catch ever dropped and to top it off the double runner started running when i dropped it and i grabbed the ball and threw the ball underarm at the stumps and missed. I was so dissapointed with that performance! I must have bowled like 12 balls altogether in the over.
    RIP BOB WOOLMER

    I`ve taken 2/47 from 6 and had a 19-ball duck in a match.

    EDIT: Looked up the scorecard, my last over went for 22. Oh my goodness.
