Biggest downfall for india in the recent times: from 94 for 3 to 95 for 7

This Friday our country witnessed one of the most unfortunate and poorest performances of our Indian cricket team. In the test series versus as strong team as Australia, the men in blue seemed to lose all the spark they were being hailed for.
After bowling Australia out for 260, India started their innings on a steady note at a slow and low pitch.
But after six overs, Vijay, who was playing the ball on its merit, lost his concentration and was caught behind the stumps. He was dismissed by medium pacer Jose Hazlewood with just 26 runs on the board.
The fall of wicket brought in Cheteshwar Pujara (6), who along with Rahul could add only 17 runs before Pujara was sent packing in the 15th over by pacer Mitchell Starc.
The things got worse when in the same over Indian skipper Virat Kohli (0) was also sent back to the pavilion.
Starc, who was bowling his heart out in the middle dismissed Kohli in the same over to reduce the hosts 44/3.
Incoming batsman Rahane, and opener Rahul then stabilised the innings and played intelligently.
