Indoor Test: Team India’s fourth lowest score at home against Australia


India vs Australia: The host team was bowled out for just 109 runs in the ongoing Test match between India and Australia at Indore. This is the fourth lowest score for Team India in Test matches played against Australia on home soil so far. Three times in the last 20 years, Team India has been bowled out for less than 109. Let us inform you that the Australian team is playing its 53rd Test match in India.

India’s lowest score against Australia at home was 104 runs. In the 2004 Test at Mumbai, Team India could score only 104 runs. Then in 2017 in Pune, Team India restricted one innings to 105 runs and reduced the second innings to 107 runs.

It also became an embarrassing record
Another embarrassing record was recorded in the name of Team India in the third Test of Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023. In the first innings of this Test, Team India could only bat for 33.2 overs. It is the fourth lowest number of overs bowled by an Indian team in the first innings in the history of Test matches at home.

Team India is caught in its trap
For the indoor Test, the Indian team had prepared a spin track similar to Nagpur and Delhi, but here the Indian team fell victim to its own trap. Team India got all out in the second session on the first day of the match. Australia’s spinners did not allow the Indian batsmen to stand for long. Here Matthew Kuhneman took five wickets, Nathan Lyon three and Todd Murphy one wicket.

In this third Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023, the Indian opening pair added 27 runs for the first wicket at one point, but as soon as the first wicket fell, the back-to-back players started returning to the pavilion. Five batsmen were dismissed in the span of 18 runs. Half of the team reached the India Pavilion at 45 runs. After this the lower order fought for some time but in the end the Indian team managed only 109 runs.
