Lowest Score of the 21st Century: Team India creates history on Saturday as they bundled out for the lowest-ever score not only in the 21st century but also in Test cricket. As Virat Kohli led the Indian cricket team, who is currently taking on Australia in the opening match of the four-match test series at Adelaide Oval. That seems to be a shambolic display of batting by the Indian cricket team. Moreover, this is India's lowest score in Test cricket and the fifth-lowest total of all time. Take a look at the lowest-ever score of the ongoing century (21st) as stated below.
The Indian cricket team on Saturday suffered the ignominy of being restricted to its lowest-ever total in Test cricket, collapsing to 36/9 in the second innings against Australia at Adelaide Oval. India finished on 36/9 with Mohammad Shami being retired hurt. For Australia, Josh Hazelwood finished with magical figures of 5/8 while Pat Cummins, World's no. 1 Test bowler took 4 wickets by conceding only 21 runs.
None of the Indian batters reached into the double-figure mark that tells you a story if you are an Indian cricket fan. Mayank Agarwal (9) was the top scorer for India.
Australian threatening pacemen Pat Cummins and Josh Hazelwood scattered Indian batsmen like playing cards for a paltry 36* in Adelaide on December 19, 2020. This is the lowest score of the 21st century. India's innings lasted just 21.2 overs, that is 128 balls, making it the third-shortest second innings of a Test match.
The previous lowest score of the Indian cricket team was 42 against England in 1974 at the famous Lord's Cricket Stadium. However, Bangladesh registered the previous lowest-ever score of the 21st century. 43 all-out against West Indies in 2018 at North Sound was the previous lowest score of the 21st century.
