    Was this the quickest innings ever?

    Was NZ's 'efforts' the quickest time it took for a side to be dismissed?
    5-0

    no...I think there was a match in the 1800s that got over very quickly.....that probably has the record
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    Some general searching gives me this 1st Test: England v South Africa at Birmingham, Jun 14-17, 1924 | Cricket Scorecard | ESPN Cricinfo

    That was the only ever time no one got double figures in the innings, but I reckon there have probably been shorter innings.

    That innings of 12.3 overs is the shortest in all Tests I believe. I can find only four others, including today's, that didn't complete 20 overs.

    Perhaps unsurprisingly it was the only f-c match that Dera Ismail Khan ever played. And none of the players in that side ever played another match - perhaps they were put off for life. I did read a good match report a few years ago, I can't remember where though. I'm surprised it hasn't featured in Cricinfo's 'Rewind' series.

    It's also the lowest run rate in a completed innings, and the only one under 1.

    Yes, and then some. I like the fact that Railways used different bowlers in each innings and still shot them out for next to nothing!

    Was that Dera Ismail Khan last and only FC game? None of that side played another FC game according to Cricinfo.
