Adleide (Australia): India registered its lowest score in the Test cricket on Saturday when all its wickets went down at a score of 36 runs in the second innings against Australia in the Adleide stadium.
India had a lead of 62 runs at the beginning of the day-3 of the 1st test match, but the visitors were thrashed to their lowest score ever in the history by the Aussies bowlers very soon. Before this innings, India’s lowest score ever in Test was against England in 1974.
Resuming the game at 9/1, India lost its first wicket in day 3 in the 7th over. Opener Mayank Agarwal(9 off 40) is the top scorer of the team in the 2nd innings.
Captain Virat Kohli also completed the season without a century. Reportedly, Kohli will be returning back to India after the first test and Ajinkya Rahane will lead the team for the rest of the Test matches against the Aussies.
Things turned worse for the visitors as Pat Cummins took the wicket of Virat Kohli(4 off 8). By the end of the innings, Mohammed Shami had to retire from the match hurt after Cummin’s ball hit his Right-Arm wrist. According to reports, Shami has been advised to take rest for 3 days and will be missing the remaining session of the 1st Test.
