India’s embarrassing pink-ball collapse | The West Australian


* India’s second innings total of 36 is their lowest-ever in Tests. Previous low was 42 versus England in 1974.

* India’s total is the equal sixth-lowest completed innings in Test history. Record low is 26 by New Zealand versus England in 1955

* India’s second innings total is an equal-low in Test history against Australia, with South Africa’s 36 in 1932 in Melbourne

* India’s lowest Test total in Australia had been 58 in 1947 in Brisbane

* It’s only the second time in Test cricket that all 11 batsmen failed to reach double-figures. The other was South Africa against England in 1924

* Josh Hazlewood took a five-wicket haul in just 25 deliveries

* Hazlewood finished with 5-8. There’s only seven instances in Test history of a bowler taking five wickets for less than eight runs

* Pat Cummins took his 150th wicket in his 31st Test. Only one Australian has reached the milestone in fewer Tests, Clarrie Grimmett’s 28 Tests. (The fastest in history is England’s Sydney Barnes, 24 Tests)

* It is the first calendar year since 2008 that Virat Kohli finishes without an international century

(Footnote: The last man retiring hurt means the tourists are officially all out)
