India's previous Test low was 42 against England at Lord's in 1974
Australia dismissed India for their lowest ever Test score of 36 on Saturday to leave the hosts needing 90 to win the opening Test in Adelaide after an incredible batting collapse.
India started day three of the day-night Test on nine for one and with a 62-run lead, looking to build a competitive second innings total for Australia to chase.
But their hopes were left in tatters after an exhibition of fast bowling by Josh Hazlewood (5-8) and Pat Cummins (4-21).
