Indian cricket team suffered a humiliating defeat against Australia by 8 wickets at Adelaide. After bowling out India on 36 runs, their lowest score in Tests, Australia chased down the 90-run target to win the first Test.
Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar was surprised with the batting collapse and called the performance embarrassing. He even joked about India's second innings total of 36/9.
"I woke up & saw the score 369. I couldn't believe it. Then i washed my eyes and saw the score 36/9. I couldn't believe it either & went back to sleep. ????????????," he tweeted on Twitter, which was followed by a video. Akhtar said the world's mighty batting crumbling down is a disgraceful performance.
After Virat Kohli's dismissal, India were reduced to 19 for 6. India lost 8 wickets on day three for just 27 runs as Australia took a 1-0 lead in the 4-match Test series. Josh Hazlewood returned with figures of 5/8 and Pat Cummins picked up four wickets for 21 runs.
