4, 9, 2, 0, 4, 0, 8, 4, 0, 4, 1. No, this is not a telephone number to ring! This is Indian batsmen's individual runs in the second innings of Adelaide Test.
Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood ran through the Indian top-order on Day 3. Cummins removed Jasprit Bumrah early and then got the big wicket of Cheteshwar Pujara (0) to push India back. Josh Hazlewood then dismissed Mayank Agarwal and Ajinkya Rahane in his first over. Virat Kohli was the next to go in Cummins' over as India were reduced to 19 for 6. Hazlewood struck two more wickets off two balls to get rid off Wriddhiman Saha and Ravichandran Ashwin. India lost 7 wickets this morning for just 15 runs as the day-night Test took a dramatic turn.
Mohammed Shami was forced to retire hurt following a crunching blow on the arm from Pat Cummins. Their previous lowest was 42 against England at Lord's in 1974. What a session that was. Australia need 90 to win.
This was only the second time all batsmen of a team went back to the pavilion scoring single-digit runs.
