In an unexpected twist in the first test match between Australia and India, Team India’s batting line up collapsed like never before and got all out for just 36 runs. No Indian batsman registered a double digit score and made a record of being a team with lowest test total in an innings. It all started with Bumrah’s soft dismissal. He came in as a night watchman on the second day of India’s second innings.
Fans of India and experts couldn’t believe what they just witnessed which is evident through the feed of social media platforms. Virender Sehwag, former opener of Indian team trolled the batting performance of the team by writing “The OTP to forget this is 49204084041” in his tweet. The numbers he mentioned in his tweet are the scores of the Indian batting line up.

Another former opener of Indian cricket team Wasim Jaffer also posted a tweet expressing his frustration over India’s poor performance.
“It is happening. It isn’t a nightmare….” wrote Harsha Bhogle in his tweet to define the situation.

My advice :
🌟Remove Ravi Shastri.
🌟Bring Rahul Dravid as team India coach.
🌟 Select the Indian test cricket team on the basis of First class cricket and stop selecting team on IPL basis.
Agree ? pic.twitter.com/tqqYW2EyGM
The only way not to suffer this embarrassment again is to remove this good for nothing coach with someone who is counted as one of the legends of the game…Give this shastri a bottle of wine and just throw him away 🤦🏽♂️#INDvsAUSTest #RaviShastri pic.twitter.com/kCjsq2MJUf— Kartikey Srivastava (@srivastava234) December 19, 2020

#36allout The date 19th December’2020 shall be etched in history as India has broken it’s 46 year old record of its lowest Test score of 42 vs England at Lords on 20/06/1974. Well done #TeamIndia @imVkohli @RaviShastriOfc— Alien-Hunter👊 (@TumraniZeeshan) December 19, 2020
I’m just angry. This Indian test team doesn’t deserve our time. We lost the moment Kohli bullied Kumble out of the coaching job to pick a cocky cheerleader instead. The Kohli-Shastri combo has turned a talented generation of batters into vacant “intent” hogs. We deserve better.— Rahul Desai (@ReelReptile) December 19, 2020
So far, Australia hasn’t lost a wicket and scored 51 runs in 12. 2 overs. They need 39 more runs to win in the two and half days left. Comment your views.
