In 1878 two cricket teams, within two months of each other, managed to complete their innings without any runs being scored from the bat. On May 18th 1878 Simpkin Marshall & Co. scored a total of 1 (courtesy of a bye) at Holloway against Civil Service Supply Association - and then, on July 11th in a Cheltenham College 2nd XI match, Garth Gammon totalled 7 in their second innings (6 byes and 1 wide) against Christowe. In this match the bowler Cornwall took 7 wickets with successive balls and the opener, Vaughan, carried his bat for 0*. This is an original page taken from the 1878 James Lillywhite's Cricketers' Annual - no great value in itself, but certainly a very amusing and interesting display item.
