Isle of Man's T20 cricket side has set records for all the wrong reasons after being dismissed for a total of just 10 runs during the sixth fixture of its tour of Spain - the lowest T20I total posted since the format's invention.

After losing the toss, Carl Hartmann's side was sent in to bat in Cartagena before falling like dominoes at the La Manga Cricket Club on Spain's south-east.

Lower-order batter Joseph Burrows top-scored for the tourists, posting four of his side's 10 runs, while No.9 Fraser Clarke was the only man to face more than 10 deliveries, eventually dismissed by Lorne Burns for a duck after 12 balls.

The British dependency's meagre total eclipsed the former T20I low watermark set by Turkey in 2019 when the fellow minnow was bundled out for 21 by the Czech Republic at Ilfov County Ground in Romania.

While proving able to tear through their guests at will, Spain bowled impeccably, allowing no extras as left-arm opener Mohammad Kamran collected a hat-trick while his strike partner Atif Mehmood finished with figures of 4/6 from four overs and Man of the Match honours.

In a minor miracle, Isle of Man was able to last 8.4 overs of Spain's white-ball inquisition, eventually seeing their afternoon with the bat end at a rate of just 1.15 runs per over.

Wasting no time in calling stumps on the one-sided contest, Spanish opener Awais Ahmed clubbed back-to-back sixes from the only two legitimate deliveries of the innings, ending the bloodbath with 118 balls left to spare.

In the previous five contests of the six-game tour, Spain bludgeoned their hosts by 81 runs, as well as wins by eight, six and seven wickets respectively.

The second fixture was called off after 16.4 overs of Spain's innings, a stage in which the hosts were sitting pretty at 3/151.

Isle of Man earned affiliate status with the International Cricket Council in 2004. The territory off England's west coast was then granted full T20 international status in April of 2018.

The minnows played their first fully-fledged contest against fellow dependency Guernsey in late August of 2021, with Guernsey prevailing by eight wickets.
