Virat Kohli led team India n its worse ever performance was bundled out to 36 all out. Team Australia thrashed team India by 8 wickets with 3 days to spare in first test match of the series. With Virat Kohli going back to India this will be really difficult for team India to bounce back.
Easily the team India will lose 0-4. The most humiliating for this so called batting powerhouse is that this was the lowest total since 1955 when New Zealand were bowled out for 26.
Josh Hazelwood was the star bowler from Australia with 5-8 and Pat Cummins 4-21. What can be said as salt to injury is that Mohamed Shami had to retire hurt with injury. His playing in next test match is doubtful
No one in the morning thought that India will surrender this match so easily. Team India had comfortable first innings lead and with such a batting strength everybody thought of good performance from team India. However contrary to everyone’s belief the team India let its fans down.
Now what team India can do to bounce back. First and foremost the team India needs big overhaul. Right from the top to bottom. Mayank Agarwal and Prathivi Shaw to be replaced with Rohit Sharma and K L Rahul. Replace Saha with Pant. Hanuma Vihari is also waste. Umesh Yadav can also be replaced with Saini.
This is and will always be one of the worst collapses in the history of test cricket. Now this remains to be seen how team India plans come back in series.
