It was a manic afternoon in Adelaide. India fell to the lowest score ever in test history with Josh Hazlewodd and Pat Cummins wreaking havoc. Some of the top stats from the textures

36 India’s lowest ever score in test history. The previous low was 42 against England back in 1974. That was also in the third innings of the game but India continued.

1 The first case in all test cricket that the 11 bats, and fans, could not exceed single figures in a hotel. The highest score was Mayank Agarwal who made 9.

19 The lowest score for India at the loss of six wikis in Tests. Their last was 25. The sixth wicket loss in test history had only seven scores lower than each team.

25 Delivered by Josh Hazlewood to finish his five wickets. He is the fastest ball from the start of a bowling spell in a 19-ball Test, set by Ernie Toshack of Australia against India in Brisbane in 1947-48, and equal to Stuart Broad for England against Australia at Trent Bridge in 2015.

8 – Run compliant with Hazlewood. Only twice an Australian bow player yields less run in a hotel where he grabbed five for more wikis.

1.6 The third most economical five-wicket draw for Australia in Tests and the best since 1947 when Toshak took 5 for 2.

31 Match for Pat Cummins to take 150 wick Test, second fastest for Australia. He shares this action with Dennis Lillee, Shane Warne and Stuart MacGill. Clarrie Grimett was the fastest although he got to 150 wick Test in 28 Tests.

19 Innings for Agarwal to reach 1000 test runs. This feat is the third fastest from India. Vinod Kambli and Cheteshwar Pujara are the two players who achieved fastest in 14 and 18 innings respectively.
