People on social media love to express their thoughts about cricket and this time Twitteratis trolled team India for getting thrashed by Australian team in the first Test match here.

Unheralded left-arm spinner Steve O'Keefe today grabbed a sensational match-haul of 12 wickets as a sloppy India slumped to a humiliating 333-run defeat.

Playing his first Test in the sub-continent, left-arm spinner Steve O'Keefe turned out to be the dark horse, taking six wickets in each innings to break the backbone of the Indian batting as Virat Kohli tasted his first defeat as skipper of all three formats.

Chasing a mammoth 441, the home side once again succumbed to the visiting spin duo of O'Keefe and Nathan Lyon to be dismissed for a paltry 107 in their second essay.

The visitors have now taken a 1-0 lead in the four-match Test series.

O'Keefe returned figures of 6/35 -- the best of his nascent four-Test career while Lyon took 4/53.

O'Keefe ended up with match figures of 12/70.
