There were two other innings which lasted just 94 deliveries each - South Africa's innings of 30 runs against England in Port Elizabeth in 1896 lasted just 18.4 five-ball overs as did England's 61 off 15.4 overs against Australia at the MCG in 1902.

0 - Total lower than Ireland's 38 all out in Tests played at the Lord's; the previous lowest being India's 42 all out against the hosts in 1974. Overall, it is the third instance of a team getting all out for less than 50 at Lord's.
