New Zealand's 26 in 1954-55 is the only instance of this happening in a completed (all-out) innings. But there have been two other notable innings* where the runs scored lagged behind the overs bowled. In the final Test at The Oval in 1956, Australia limped to 27 for 5 in their second innings, in 38.1 overs. That was less than a year after arguably the most boring innings in Test history, when New Zealand crawled to 69 for 6 in 90 overs (0.76 runs per over) to force a draw against Pakistan at Dacca in 1955-56: slow left-armer Shujauddin had bowling figures of 9-8-1-0.

I think it is 27. New Zealand were shot out for that paltry score by Australia. I don't remember the year, sorry.
