India vs Australia (IND vs AUS) 1st Test Day 3 Highlights: India were handed an eight-wicket defeat by Australia on the third day of the first Test of the four-match series at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday.
Starting the day, India lost the momentum despite taking a vital 62-run lead at the stumps of the second day. The team was restricted to its lowest ever total in Test cricket, collapsing to 36/9 in the terminated second innings. India’s earlier lowest score was 42 at the Lord’s in 1974 against England, known in Indian cricket parlance as “Summer of 42”.
Chasing 90, Joe Burns hit a 63-ball fifty to give Australia a 1-0 lead in the series. Matthew Wade also pitched in 33 runs before being dismissed by a runout. Ravichandran Ashwin was the only bowler to take a wicket.
