Six ducks for Essex batsmen

Essex were today bowled out for their lowest-ever score of 20 as Lancashire crushed them at Chelmsford.

Already in arrears of 125 after Lancashire posted a first-innings 398, six Essex batsmen made ducks in a total which was smaller than their previous worst of 30 against Yorkshire in 1901.

Lowest ever scores in County Cricket

12 Northamptonshire v Gloucestershire: Spa Ground, Gloucester 1907

13 Nottinghamshire v Yorkshire: Trent Bridge, Nottingham 1901

14 Surrey v Essex: County Ground, Chelmsford 1983
