India 0-4 / And Prudential Cup Zimbabwe

In 1983 Prudential World Cup, India were 17 for 5 at Tunbridge Wells against Zimbabwe but came back to post a competitive 266 for eight, thanks to a swashbuckling unbeaten 175 by Kapil Dev. (Gavaskar 0, Srikanth 0, Mohinder Amarnath 5, Sandeep Patil 1 and Yashpal Sharma 9) India in fact went on to win that match.
alls from Trueman and Bedser in 1952. They were soon 26 for five. But then followed a century stand between Umrigar and Phadkar and India finished the day at 130 odd for six.

When India were 0-4, a sports journalist from "The Yorkshire Post"got a teleprinter message from his office asking him to correct the scorecard which, the office thought, had mistaken been put upside down. They thought it was perhaps 4-10 (4 runs for no loss) 

Although India still lost the match, they had recovered enough to escape humiliation.
