The Isle of Man travelled to Spain last weekend for the first T20I action in Europe this year and headed home without a win in the six match series.
The series began on Friday with Spain winning the opening contest by 81 runs thanks to an unbeaten 102 by Mohammad Ihsan. The second match that day was rained off after 16.4 overs of the Spain innings and didn't stop in time for the visitors to chase a reduced target.
In the first game on Saturday, the Isle of Man were bowled out for 66, which Spain chased in 7.1 overs to win by 8 wickets. Mohammad Kamran took five wickets for just nine runs - the best ever T20I bowling figures for Spain - in the second game of the day as the Manx scored 116-8. Spain chased their target in 15.1 overs to win by six wickets.
On the final day, the visitors looked to be improving, scoring 132-8 from their 20 overs with Shafat Ali Syed taking 5-31. Spain chased their target quickly in just 12.3 overs, winning by 7 wickets.
That improvement was a false dawn though as Spain bundeld their opponents out for just ten runs in the final match of the series, Atif Mehmood taking four wickets for six runs. It was the lowest score in men's T20Is, beating Turkey's 21 in 2019, and the lowest in any men's List A T20 match, beating Sydney Thunder's 15 last December. There are five lower team totals in women's T20Is. Spain scored their runs in two legitimate balls, Awais Ahmed hitting two sixes to secure a ten wicket win.
