India get bowled for 63 in Sydney
On this day in 1981, in a Benson&Hedges World Series match played at the Sydney Cricket Ground, Australian captain, Greg Chappell, blew away the Indian batting line up with his medium-pacers and ended with career best ODI figurs that read 9.5-5-15-5. India capitulated to their then-lowest total in ODI cricket - 63 with only Gundappa Viswanath and Roger Binny managing double-digit scores. Chappell's victims included Sunil Gavaskar, Yashpal Sharma, Roger Binny, Karsan Ghavri and Dilip Doshi. In response, Australia cantered to the target in the 21st over with the Greg Chappell top scoring with 33. India's total of 63 remained their lowest total in ODIs for 19 years before they were bowled out for 54 in an ODI against Sri Lanka in Sharjah.
