India made their lowest score in Test cricket after an Embarrassing performance with Australia in the second innings of the first Test in Adelaide Australia.Team India made an undesirable record after their embarrassing batting performance with Australia in the first Test at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday where neither of the batsmen even managed to achieve double figures and have been ultimately restricted to 36/9. India have now made their lowest score within the sport’s longest format. Their earlier lowest score in Test cricket was with England on the ‘Mecca of Cricket’ Lord’s in June 1974.
India endure a dramatic batting destruction
India have been anticipated to see off the brand new ball and construct their innings within the afternoon session of Day 3, however that was not to be as Australia’s new-ball bowlers had different plans which they executed efficiently. First, it was Pat Cummins who eliminated the night-watchman Jasprit Bumrah who ended up giving a return catch to his Australian counterpart.
The Indian team’s rock-solid middle-order was badly disclosed as Cheteshwar Pujara and Test vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane failed to hassle the scorers. Even opener Mayank Agarwal who seemed set out within the center with a 40-ball 9 was caught behind by Tim Paine off Josh Hazlewood. Kohli & Co. misplaced 4 wickets without including any runs because the wickets column was needlessly bloated away from 15/1 to 15/5. The onus was now on the Indian skipper Virat Kohli to bail his team out of the critical scenario. He made a statement by hitting a boundary however was dismissed on the very subsequent ball from Pat Cummins as debutant Camron Green took a bluff on the point.
The lower-order comprising the likes of Wriddhiman Saha and others didn’t play too lengthy because the guest team have been decreased to 36/9 very quickly and when tail-ender Mohammed Shami was struck on his wrists by a vicious ball from Pat Cummins, he needed to retire hurt because the Virat Kohli-led aspect needed to declare their innings for a paltry score of 36 with an 89-run lead.
Australia want 90 runs to go 1-Zero up within the four-match sequence.
India Scored: 244 & 36
