Indian Cricket Team led by captain Virat Kohli has suffered a humiliating defeat in Australia as the host registered a convincing victory. The Australian cricket team has defeated India by 8 wickets on December 19.
The historic first day-and-night test match witnessed the most embarrassing moment for India when the complete team got all out on merely 36 runs in its second inning.
It went down into the records book as the lowest runs the team ever made in the history of test cricket.
India’s earlier lowest was in 1974 when the whole team had collapsed at merely 42 runs. It is popular as ‘Summer of 42’ in the parlance of cricket.
The lowest total ever made in the international test matches is 26 by New Zealand against England in 1955.
India had scored 244 runs in the first inning while the Australian team bowled out for 191 in the first innings. However, the second inning was disastrous for India and no player could reach the double-digit mark.
The highest scorer was Mayank Agarwal who made 9 runs. The last batsman Mohammed Sami was declared retired hurt as he suffered due to an injury in his right arm.
The Indian team put up a target of 90 runs for Australia to win which the host team did it easily after losing two wickets.
India is on a tour to Australia to play 5-day, one-day, and T20 matches. While Australia won the one-day series by 2-1, India bagged the T20 series by 2-1.
The first and opening test match, out of all four to be played, has gone to Australia.
