Australia thrashed India by 333 runs to take 1-0 lead in the four-match series courtesy O’Keefe’s brilliant 12 wickets match tally on Saturday. An Indian team which toyed with all their opponents right through this home summer was decimated by the ‘underdog’ Aussies.
The match aggregate of 212 runs for India is the least in a home Test, the previous lowest being 247 vs England in 1977.
