The Sydney Thunder have set a record-low score of just 15 runs thanks to a dominant Adelaide Strikers bowling performance from Henry Thornton and Wes Agar.

The Thunder's total, which included five ducks and no score greater than four from any batsman, is the lowest T20 score in Men's cricket and the equal lowest score in First Class, List A and T20 cricket ever.

The tally of 15 runs sees the Thunder comfortably claim the record for the lowest BBL score ever, with the previous record held by the Melbourne Renegades for their score of 57 in 2015.

It also surpassed Turkey's all-time low T20 score of 21, which was recorded against the Czech Republic three years ago.

Opening pair Matthew Gilkes and Alex Hales, captain Jason Sangha and tail-enders Chris Green and Gurinder Sandhu all failed to get off the mark as Thornton and Agar collected nine wickets between them to see the entire innings last just 35 balls.

Thorton would end the evening at Sydney Showground Stadium with the figures of 5/3 from 2.5 overs, while Agar collected four wickets from his two overs for a return of six runs.

The Thunder were chasing 140 runs to win, however soon conceded a 124-run loss.

"I don't have much to say about that, to be honest," Sangha said post-match.

"I could sit here and I could dive into what went wrong and what we could have done better.

"But at the end of the day, it's just not good enough for a professional team to get bowled out for that little."

Social media went into a frenzy during and after the stunning innings, with Thunder player and Australian Test opener David Warner evening having a say.

The Thunder will head to Melbourne to face the Renegades on Sunday night as they look to gain back some respect, while the Strikers' next game will come against the Thunder on Tuesday in Adelaide.
