For the fourth time against Australia, Indian batsmen failed, left-arm spinners hit all four times
In the third Test match against Australia, Australia looks tough. The match started on March 1 (Wednesday) at the Holkar Stadium in Indore. Captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and decided to bat first. But the Indian batsmen failed completely in the first innings of this match. As a result, the Indian team scored the fourth lowest total against Australia at home.
After this year’s Test series between India and Australia (IND vs AUS) was held in India, criticism of the pitching started from Australia. In the first and second Tests of the series, banana spin was favored. India won the first Test by an innings and 132 runs in Nagpun. The second Test match was played in Delhi and India won by 6 wickets. On the first day of the third Test between the two teams, the pitch was seen to be conducive to spin. But this time it cost the Indian batsmen on the pitch. India lost all their wickets after scoring just 109 runs in the first innings.
India posted the fourth-lowest score in a Test against Australia at home on Wednesday. India’s most disappointing performance in Test matches at home was in 2004 against the Australian team. In a match played in Mumbai, India lost all wickets for just 104 runs, the team’s lowest Test total at home till date. Second in the list is the Pune Test played in 2017. In this match in Pune, Australia wrapped up India’s innings for 105 runs. Also at the third place in the list is the 2017 Pune Test, when India were bowled out for 107 runs. India’s performance in the Indore Test on Wednesday is number four on the list. India were bowled out for just 109 runs in the first innings of this match.

Australia’s success in all four Test matches was due to their left-arm spinners. In these four Test matches, Michael Clarke (Michael Clarke), Steve O’Keefe (Steve O’Keefe), Steve O’Keefe and Matthew Kuhneman took five wickets. Interestingly, this was the first five-wicket haul in the Test career of these bowlers. (Lowest total by India against Australia in home Tests)
