Indian batsman got shattered like a bunch of cards as they were bowled out for 36 runs in their second innings to give a target of 90 runs to the Australian team. The Virat Kohli led team got first innings lead of 53 runs but could not capitalize in their second innings.
This is men in blue’s lowest score in Indian Test history as well as the worst batting performance in a pink ball test.
In the 3rd and moving day of the Adelaide test, India started their innings from 9-1 with Mayank Agarwal and night watchman Jasprit Bumrah on the crease. After the departure of Bumrah, the pace duo of Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood wrecked havoc on the Indian batsman. Tim Paine was busy behind the stumps with 5 catches. Hazlewood returned with a figure of 5-8, which is the most economical five-wicket haul by an Australian in 73 years.
Twitter lashed at the Indian team for lack lustrous batting display but some humorous tweets added some taste for the dejected Indians fans.
