BBL: Every cricket team looks to score the most runs in their given overs. And with the introduction of the T20 format, the pace of scoring runs has become even quicker. But it happens some times that in order to score more runs, teams tend to get all out for a very low score. We have seen many instances when a whole team gets all out in T20 cricket for even less than 50 runs.
The upcoming season of the Big Bash League is around the corner. It will start after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup in Australia. In the previous 11 years, BBL has delivered numerous outstanding performances. And in this article, we will talk about the list of lowest scores in BBL history.
6. Perth Scorchers (69 all out) vs Melbourne Stars in 2012
The Perth Scorchers had the fifth lowest BBL total in history, which came against Melbourne Stars in 2012. After winning the toss, Melbourne chose to bowl first, and it was a horrible day for Perth with the bat. They lost their first four wickets for just 16 runs and then got all out for 69 runs in 15.2 overs. Lasith Malinga single-handedly did the damage with a figure of 6/7 in four overs. In reply, Melbourne were at 29/0 in two overs when the rain stopped play and they were rewarded with the match by the D/L method.
5. Adelaide Strikers vs (68 all out) vs Melbourne Stars in 2021

Melbourne Stars have the third lowest BBL total to their name. It came in the match against Sydney Sixers in the 2021 season. Sydney scored a big total of 213/4 in their 20 overs in the first innings. Josh Philippe (83 off 47) and skipper Moises Henriques (76* off 28) were the top scorers.
