Lowest Test Score: Australia Dismissed India Only On 36 Scores
36 Score during A Test Match Is the Fourth Lowest Score Made Worldwide
The star-studded Indian cricket batting line up experienced massive humiliation during a test match that occurred on Saturday, during which the Australian team was able to dismiss its opponent with the lowest test score ever of 36. The third day of the India-Australia test series started on nine for one along with the lead of 62 runs, as they were looking forward to playing a competitive second innings to provide a chasing target for the Australian team.
Indian team embarrassing test match score
But the hopes of the Indian team were shattered in a small amount of time after as the fast bowlers from the Australian cricket team, Pat Cummins (4-21) and Josh Hazlewood (5-8), which resulted in the lowest test score of India. The previous lowest test score record made by India was 42 against the cricket team of England at the Lord’s stadium in the year 1974.
The recently made lowest test score of 36 runs is the joint fourth lowest test score of all times with the worst ever inadequate score of 26 made by New Zealand in a match against England in the year 1955 that occurred in Auckland.
The initial capitulation left the Australian team to require 90 runs to win the match, which Matthew Wade and Joe Burns were able to reduce 15 score points before the break for dinner.
Cummins didn’t waste any of the time of the test match in removing Jasprit Bumrah in the second over for the day after two runs, which in turn tempted him to make further incoming balls with the slower speed that snapped back up to him, resulting in the lowest test score in Australia-India test series.
This, in turn, brought out Cheteshwar Pujara into the crease, although he was only able to stay there only for an over with Cummins but was unable to make any run points for his team, which in the end cost the Indian team the test match as they were only able to achieve the lowest test score.
The Australian cricket team player Pat Cummins is the number one test bowler across the world. One of his delivery played by Pujara caught an edge, but the ball was carried to behind the sumps toward Tim Paine. This left the Indian team with 15 runs for three wickets and at the end with the lowest test score in international cricket, but it further worsened when the opening batsman Mayank Agarwal was sent back to the pavilion after only being able to play for five balls, which was caught again by Paine after the delivery by Josh Hazlewood.
Later, both the Australian players Paine and Hazlewood combined their efforts to get rid of Ajinkya Rahane for zero runs. Further, along with the match, Pat Cummins was able to get the wicket for the Indian cricket team hotshot Virat Kohli, as he attempted to shot for four runs, but the ball was caught by Australian Cameron Green after the clip was reviewed at slow speed.
At 19 for 6, the Indian team was at a very critical stage of making the worst possible score during a test match, but the situation converted into a reality when Ravi Ashwin got out by Hazlewood’s delivery.
The four runs from Vihari were able to move the Indian team past New Zealand’s least score during a test match, sparing them from a much bigger embarrassing situation.
Virat Kholi taking leave for childbirth
The recently played test match against Australia with the lowest test score made by India would be the last match for Virat Kohli as he would be taking a three-month leave to return back home to India for the birth of his first child with Anushka Sharma.
In the absence of Kohli, Ajinke Rahane would assume as the captain of the Indian cricket team. In the series against Australia, India is yet to play three more matches in opposition to them, which are scheduled to be played in Melbourne started from Boxing Day.
During the entire test match, none of the batsmen in the Indian cricket team were able to score double-digit runs, and the entire match only lasted for 22 overs before all Indian players were out. In contrast to this lowest test score made by India, Australia was able to achieve 244 runs in the first innings of the test match.
