Australia vs India: The visitors showed a full flop show on the third day of the first test against Australia. With Australian deadly bowlers making comeback into the game, restricted Team India to the lowest ever score registered in Test Cricket.

Australia reduced India to just 39/9 in the first hour of the third day which is the lowest total recorded by India. India faced more embarrassment after Star Bowler Mohammad Shami could not bat at the end after being hit by Short Ball from Mitchell Starc.

The ball struck in Shami’s wrist and he could not complete the innings. It would be a loss for India if medical reports of Mohammad Shami show a fracture on the wrist.

India’s earlier recorded its lowest total of 42 runs against England in 1974 at Lord’s.

The visitor’s innings was declared at 39/9 after Shami walked off in pain.

On the second day, Indian bowlers took a decent lead of 53 runs but Australians made their comeback after dismissing Prithwi Shaw early in the second innings of India.

On day three, none of the Indian players could touch the double-digit mark as Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood registered their four and five wickets respectively.

At one stage, India was on verge of setting the lowest total of the cricketing history but Hanuma Vihari’s boundary saved Team India from the darkest page of Cricketing history.

Indian batsmen were completely exposed by the extra bounce generated by the Australian seamers who played a major role in the collapse of Indian batting.

After a flop show in the first test, the whole series looks in danger. Management will have to make a perfect combination of the players as Virat Kohli will be leaving Australia after the test and Virat’s absence will be huge for Australia.
