26 all out after 9 for 8

China may have the world's biggest population and the second largest economy, but they are yet to impress in one area: the cricket field, where they have been humbled by minnows Nepal.

China's latest foray on the international stage ended in a huge defeat on Wednesday as they scored only 26 all out in a World Twenty20 qualifier, a total which Nepal surpassed in just 11 balls.

It wasn't even their worst innings of the tournament: China were 26 all out in their loss to Singapore, and they had scores of 35 for nine, 45, and 48 in defeats to Thailand, Bhutan and Myanmar.

However one cannot be surprised by the Chinese scoreline after what happened on Tuesday when Myanmar managed to score only 9 runs for the loss of 8 wickets in 10.1 overs against Malaysia before rain stopped play.

Malaysia easily surpassed a revised target of 6 runs in 8 overs scoring 11 for 2 in 1.4 overs.
