Indian captain Virat Kohli returns to the lodge.

Australian cricket legend Ian Chappell has witnessed countless batting surrenders in more than 50 years of involvement at the highest level.

What sleeves make India’s total collapse at 36 at Adelaide Oval remind him?

England Skittling Australia for 60 at the 2015 Ashes Trent Bridge test match.

When Michael Clarke’s men arrived at the Nottingham site, they had to win the match to keep any chance of winning the series.

But chief destroyer Stuart Broad would take 8-15 as Australia collapsed in what remains their seventh lowest innings total in Test history, en route to an innings loss.

Today’s horror show in Border-Gavaskar series opener saw India drop to its lowest innings in test history, eclipsing their 42 against England at Lord’s in 1974.

“I would compare it to Australia at Trent Bridge when Stuart Broad walked through the Australians and they were eliminated for 60 years. It was pretty similar that day; Australia slashed it all and England kept their taken, ”Chappell told Wide Sports World.

“Some days you play and you miss, and you play and you miss, and you get a little bit of luck early on and you get successful and you might thrive. And then the other days you don’t get that lucky and things go. deteriorate quite quickly.

“But that (the Trent Bridge innings) is the other one I can think of where the bowling was really good and the batsmen slashed everything.”

India’s 36 are the weakest cricket test heats since 1955 and the lowest total on Australian soil, while the previous lowest total at Adelaide Oval was 82.

Josh Hazlewood (5-8) only became the 18th Australian to win 200 tryouts, and he also passed the great Jeff Thomson.

However, Mohammed Shami retiring injured after being hit by a short ball from Pat Cummins meant Hazlewood didn’t have a chance to improve his best inning numbers of 6-67.

The New South Welshman targeted the top of the stump relentlessly and provided spectators with exceptional bowling exposure.

Chappell was full of praise for Hazlewood and Cummins.

“The bowling was almost perfect and you have those days when it all comes to an end,” Chappell said.

“When you hear commentators talking about a bowler’s bad luck and they’ve beaten the bat a lot, it’s usually because they’re just a little short. That’s when you beat the bat and you don’t get the advantage. length today, both Cummins and Hazlewood. “

The lowest test heats in which Chappell was involved saw England scoring 78 points at Lord’s in 1968.

England’s fast David Brown took 5-42 and Chappell was sacked for seven years.
