Cricket: China bowled out for just 28

Bangkok: China were bowled out for a humiliating 28 on Saturday as they crashed to a 390-run defeat against Saudi Arabia in a World Cricket League regional qualifier.

The paltry total was seven runs worse than the record for a full one-day international of 35 made by Zimbabwe against Sri Lanka in 2004.

Saudi Arabia piled up 418 off 50 overs before China’s outclassed batsmen collapsed to just 28 all out in 12.4 overs with ‘extras’ the top scorer on 13.
