Henry Thornton stole the show, taking 5/3 in just 17 balls, including the final wicket of Brendan Doggett.
There were FIVE ducks in the innings, including Alex Hales, and only ONE boundary, which was hit by Doggett, who top scored with four.
Wes Agar took four wickets for six in his two overs.
Thunder’s score of just 15 is the lowest score in any T20 match EVER, overtaking Turkey, who scored 21 against v Czech Rep in August 2019.
A stunned Thornton said: “I honestly, cannot believe what just happened.
“We thought they bowled well. I thought if we hung in long enough, we could get through.
“I have experienced nothing like that in my life.
“We were very clear in what we wanted to execute, wanted to bowl at the top of the stumps.
“Agar was brilliant, Short’s catch at slip was one of the best I’ve ever seen. We were super disciplined, great performance.
“I feel like I need to retire, it won’t get better on that.”
