Jason Krejza became the sixth bowler to grab eight wickets in a debut innings as India were bowled out for 441 on the second day of the fourth and final Test against Australia here on Friday.
The off-spinner, 25, finished with 8-215 off 43.5 overs, with his last five wickets coming in the afternoon off 5.5 overs for just 20 runs.
Australians Albert Trott and Bob Massie, West Indian Alf Valentine, Indian Narendra Hirwani and South African Lance Klusener were others to have claimed eight wickets in an innings on their Test debut.
Australia were 43-1 in reply at tea on the second day, with Simon Katich (18) and skipper Ricky Ponting (seven) at the crease.
Matthew Hayden (16) was the lone batsman to be dismissed, failing to beat debutant Murali Vijay's direct-hit from mid-on at the non-striker's end.
India were on course for a big total following a 119-run stand for the sixth wicket between retiring Sourav Ganguly (85) and new captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (56) before Krejza struck in the afternoon session.
The hosts were strongly placed at 422-5 when Krejza removed Ganguly and Dhoni in the space of three balls. Both batsmen were beaten by turning deliveries, with Dhoni losing his leg-stump and Ganguly edging to slip fielder Michael Clarke.
Left-handed Ganguly missed out on a rare feat of scoring a century in the first and last Test, hitting one six and eight fours in his 153-ball knock. Mohammad Azharuddin is the only Indian to have achieved the landmark.
India lead 1-0 in the series following their 320-run victory in the second match in Mohali. The Tests in Bangalore and New Delhi were drawn.
There was no hint of collapse in the morning as India denied Australia success in the two-hour session, adding 93 runs to their overnight total of 311-5.
Ganguly, who scored a century in Mohali, extended his impressive run in the farewell series as he cut and drove fluently. He used his feet well against Krejza, once stepping out to loft the bowler over long-on for a six.
But Krejza came back strongly after the lunch-break, sparking a collapse which saw the hosts lose their last five wickets for 19 runs.
The spinner was on a hat-trick when he bowled Zaheer Khan and Amit Mishra in his 43rd over before finishing the innings in the next over with the wicket of last-man Ishant Sharma.
