Crawley said that the English side needed that bit of luck as they are behind in the ongoing day-night Test.
The right-handed England opener believed that a win for England is still within reach.
The visitors lost four wickets in the opening session before unravelling completely in the second.
Crawley, who turned 23 on Wednesday, had slipped on the marble floor of the Chepauk dressing room, thereby injuring his wrist.
It is hard to remember a top team like England arriving in India with their openers having no prior experience of playing in these conditions.
After winning the toss, England lost both of its opening batsmen, Rory Burns (6) and Dom Sibley (22), to leave Crawley and captain Joe Root to rebuild the innings.
