Most of the cricket world on Saturday morning woke up to the news of India all out with only 36 runs on board against Australia.
India was bowled out on its record lowest score on the third day of the Adelaide Test.
The previous lower record for India was 42 runs against England at Lord’s in 1974.
Pat Cummins and Josh Hazlewood both were heroes of the day after hitting Test wicket milestones in an incredible first session.
Josh Hazlewood took 5-8 while Pat Cummins bowled out 4-21 as India went from 1-9 overnight to 36 all out in just 15.2 overs.
The turn of events at the Adelaide ground has left Twitter digging gold with all sorts of reactions and memes, including posts from the cricket’s greats.
Former Pakistan fast pacer Wasim Akram couldn’t believe what happened in Australia.
Wait what happened? I just went to play 9 holes came back game over . What a spell by The Australians . Pace matters. #INDvsAUSTest

While Sachin Tendulkar came out praising the beauty of cricket amid India’s humiliating defeat:
With the way India batted & bowled in the 1st innings, they were in the driver's seat, but the Aussies came back really hard this morning.
That is the beauty of Test cricket.
It’s NEVER over till it’s over. India was outclassed in the 2nd half. Congratulations to Australia!
