The third day of the first Test between Australia and India at the Adelaide Oval saw a horror collapse for India as they were all out for just 36. It is now India’s lowest score in Tests, lower than the previous record of 42 against England at Lord’s in 1974. Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins were the architects of India’s demolition as the pacers took five and four wickets respectively.

36 is also the seventh lowest score in the history of Test cricket and just the second time ever no batsman scored double figures. Mayank Agarwal’s 9 was the highest score during India’s horror collapse. Having dismissed Prithvi Shaw on day two, Cummins continued his fine display by removing night-watchman Jasprit Bumrah in his first over on day three.

Four overs later India had not added a single run when Cummins sent back Cheteshwar Pujara for a eight-ball duck with a stunning delivery. And India were yet to add another run when Hazlewood sent back Agarwal and Ajinkya Rahane in his very first over to reduce India to 15 for 5 from 15 for 1. It then became 19 for 6 when Cummins took the prized scalp of Virat Kohli.

Hazlewood took his fourth wicket when wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha offered a catch to Marnus Labuschagne at mid-wicket. On the very next ball, Hazlewood had Ravichandran Ashwin caught behind. He completed his five-wicket haul in his next over as Hanuma Vihari edged through to Tim Paine. The innings came to an end when Cummins hit Mohammed Shami on his arm and forced him to retire hurt.
