In the Nepal Pro Club Championship T20 match, the rarest event happened on a cricket field. In Match 8 of the tournament between Push Sports Delhi and Malaysia Club XI, the Push Sports Delhi side lost six wickets in six consecutive balls of the innings.
While playing for Malaysia Club XI, Virandeep Singh delivered the final over of the 1st innings. Although the over started off with a wide, the wickets fell in quick succession for the Push Sports Delhi team. In order to provide a late flourish, the middle-order and the tail-enders tried to hit the balls, without even timing in a perfect manner. The bowler took five wickets, while the other one ended up as a run-out dismissal. Virandeep finished with figures of 5/9 off two overs.
