Australia's batting collapse yesterday has entered the all time record books.

Australia lost 10/86 after being 0/158 on day two against South Africa.

As it stands, it is their worst ever collapse after a 100-run opening partnership.

The Aussies have been prone to a batting collapse or two over recent years, but this is a whole new perspective on losing a multitude of wickets at once.

It's not quite the worst in Test cricket, though.

India remarkably managed to crash from 0/124 to all out for 170 in a Test match against England 70 years ago.

It could be worse...

...but not much worse.
