Worst ever Collapse by India in Tests
Pune: Last 7 wickets gone in just 11 runs against Australia was recorded as the worst ever collapse in Test cricket history by India against any team.
On Day 2, the home team was bundled out for mere 105, with Australian leg spinner Steve O Keefe playing the crucial role in picking up Indian wickets.
Keefe, who bowled splendidly with googlies, took 3 wickets for just 4 runs in an over taking Australia lead to 155 in first Innings. On a spin track pitch in MCA Pune, Keefe with his 3rd spell of the match gave a master stroke to Indian batsmen by picking 6 wickets for just 5 runs. This was the best bowling spell by any bowler against India in Test cricket history.
