And that prompted everyone to check the history books to find out the lowest Test scores for India.

Here's a look at the previous five lowest scores for India:

1. 42 vs England at Lord's in 1974
2. 58 vs Australia at Brisbane in 1947
3. 58 vs England at Manchester in 1952
4. 66 vs South Africa at Durban in 1996
5. 67 vs Australia at Melbourne in 1948

But the overall record belong to New Zealand - 26 against England at Auckland in 1955. England have inflicted such unimaginably low scores to other teams in the early days of cricket, and the top four belong to their roll.

Second to fifth are all by South Africa - 30 vs England at Port Elizabeth in 1896, 30 vs England at Birmingham in 1924, 35 vs England at Cape Town in 1899 and 36 vs Australia at Melbourne in 1932.
