Visitor India succumbed to an embarrassing eight-wicket defeat at the hands of host Australia, on Day 3 of the first day-night Test, for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, in Adelaide, on Saturday.

However, the second innings saw the Indians collapsing at a paltry score for 36, on Day 3, with Josh Hazlewood (5/8) and Pat Cummins (4/21) wreaking havoc. In the end, it was a comfortable eight-wicket chase for the host, with Joe Burns staying unbeaten on 51.
