India vs Australia 2017

Ind vs Aus: Twitter explodes after a rare Indian batting collapse!

In a surprise failure of the entire batting unit, the Indian team witnessed one of its worst batting collapses at home in recent years. Facing the right-left spin combo of Nathan Lyon and Steve O’Keefe, no Indian batsman apart from KL Rahul showed any sort of resistance.

The Twitterati showed no mercy to the Indian team as they witnessed one of their worst batting performances in recent years, especially at home.




Here is a look at a couple of instances in the past where India have seen such unexpected collapses at home in tests.

53/4 to 56/8 vs South Africa at Ahmedabad, 2008

In what was India’s most dismal display of batting at home, the hosts lost 4 wickets for just 3 runs against South Africa. Rahul Dravid, MS Dhoni, Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh were the four batsmen to be dismissed in the process.

255/3 to 260/8 vs Sri Lanka at Delhi, 2005

The match ended on India’s side but the Indian lineup collapsed after a solid start in the first innings of the match. Initiated by Sourav Ganguly, he was soon followed by Yuvraj Singh, Sachin Tendulkar, Irfan Pathan and MS Dhoni.

94/3 to 105 all out vs Australia at Pune, 2017

The Indian team lost 5 wickets for just 4 runs. From 94/3, India were reduced to 98/8 before being bundled out for 105 after Australia were bowled out 260 early in the day. Losing 7 wickets for just 11 runs has been India’s worst collapse ever!
