World’s first underground match took place in the Lake District at Cumbria on Thursday when teams from Threkald and Caldbeck took on each other at Honister Slate Mine in England.
The two teams competed in a 11-mile network of underground tunnels inside Fleetwith Pike. It was conducted 2,000 feet below the ground.
According to Daily Mail, the match was organized as a fundraiser after Threkland lost their cricket pitch due to flooding.
It was a six-over per side affair and a bowler could bowl a maximum of one over. No boundaries were there and batsmen had to run after each shot.
Caldbeck chased down the target of 28 runs with one over and four balls to spare.
