The cricket in Cape Town last night was simply awful from a New Zealand perspective. So instead of a lengthy dissertation as to why the New Zealand side batted so badly, we're trying to find some humour or comic relief.
But the photograph below sets the stage. Yes; it really was THAT bad. New Zealand clocked up the lowest test match innings score since 1974, and the 12th worst of all time. And it has been recorded for posterity:
There's really no argument about how bad this performance was. We've supported New Zealand cricket for over 50 years, and we have never seen a worse batting effort in a test match.
