The Isle of Man were dismissed for 10 in the final game of their tour on Sunday, the lowest score in men’s Twenty20 history.
Spain won the toss and elected to bowl, and the Isle of Man were all out in 8.4 overs.
Seven players were dismissed without scoring and Joseph Burrows top-scored with four.
The previous lowest score was Sydney Thunder’s 15 against Adelaide Strikers in 2022.
Spain’s Mohammad Kamran took 4-4, including a hat-trick with the wickets of Luke Ward, Carl Hartmann and Edward Beard in the third over.
Left-arm pacer Atif Mehmood also took four wickets and Lorne Burns claimed the other two in his first four balls.
Spain needed just two legitimate deliveries to chase the target. The first ball was a no-ball before right-handed batter Awais Ahmed hit the next two for six.
The game was the second of two on Saturday, with Isle of Man posting 132-8 from their 20 overs in the earlier game, but Spain won by seven wickets with 45 balls remaining.
Isle of Man became an affiliate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2004 and an associate member in 2017. They play games in the European sub-regional qualifiers for T20 World Cups, but have never made it to the global qualifiers.
They are currently ranked 39th in the ICC’s T20 rankings.
