Although Test, ODI, T20, and the modern era cricket have different versions based on the franchise, Test cricket has the highest status. The stronger the team in test cricket, the more advanced the country is in terms of cricket prestige. As a team can make a run hill, some groups are helpless to surrender to the opponent bowlers and have been all out in a shameful total in an innings.
Let’s look at five teams who have the lowest team total in the cricketing test history>
