India's worst performances in Tests

Rajneesh Gupta | April 03, 2008

From the highs of the Chennai Test, India's batting plummetted to the depths in the second Test in Ahmedabad on Thursday.

Opting to bat first after winning the toss India were bowled out for a paltry 76.

That the innings folded within a session and lasted only 20 overs tells how unpredictable this Indian side is.

Today's performance is among India's worst, as can be seen from the following tables:
