The third day of the Adelaide Test proved to be a nightmare for Team India. Team India, looking strong by the end of the second day, folded in 90 minutes on the third day of the day-night test. When the Indian team scored 36 runs for nine wickets, Mohammed Shami had to leave the crease due to injury. The target of 90 runs was to win the match against Australia.
Australia won the match by scoring 93 runs for 2 wickets. Steve Smith (1) and Joe Burns (51) remain unbeaten. On the third day, the Indian team started to play by 9 runs for one wicket. After this, the team lost 8 wickets in 27 runs. For Australia, Josh Hazlewood took 5 and Pat Cummins took 4 wickets. Team India crashed in Adelaide within 4 hours.
No Indian batsman could score even 10 runs
No Indian team batsman crossed the double-digit mark. Aggarwal scored the highest 9 runs. Pujara, Rahane and Ashwin could not even open the account. Captain Virat Kohli also flopped and was dismissed after scoring 4 runs.
India’s shameful record
The Indian Test team, which reached Australia on the occasion of strong batting order, has made a record in its name which no team in the world would like to do. India scored their lowest score in Test cricket at 36. Earlier, India’s minimum score was 42 runs, which it made against England in 1974 at Lord’s.
