ADELAIDE: India slumped to their lowest innings score in 88 years of test cricket when they were dismissed for 36 in the opening session of the third day of the day-night first Test against Australia at Adelaide Oval on Saturday.

The tourists resumed on 9-1 and added only 27 runs before Mohammed Shami retired hurt to end their second innings, leaving Australia requiring only 90 to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.

Pacemen Josh Hazlewood (5-8) and Pat Cummins (4-21) did the damage at a ground once renowned for big scores to deal a heavy blow to India’s hopes of repeating their maiden test series triumph in Australia two years ago.
