Chennai: Feb 26, 2013
 
Statistical highlights on the fifth day of the opening cricket Test match between India and Australia on Tuesday.
 
# Twenty wickets fell to Indian spinners in a Test match for the third time – the second time at Chennai, first occasion being vs England in 1972-73. The only instance of such a happening by Indian bowlers recording in an overseas Test was against New Zealand at Auckland in 1975-76.
 
# MS Dhoni has got his second Man of the Match award in Tests – both vs Australia – his first was at Mohali in 2008-09 for recording 92 & 68 not out.
 
# Chepauk, Chennai is the venue where India have won most Tests (13), followed by Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi (11) and Eden Gardens, Kolkata (10).
 
# India’s eight-wicket triumph is their biggest in terms of wickets against Australia in Tests. Against Australia, India have won three and lost one out of seven contested at Chepauk, Chennai (Drawn 2 and Tied 1).
 
# Moises Henriques (81 not out) has posted his highest Test score, eclipsing the 68 in the first innings.
 
# Henriques’ match tally of 149 is the second highest by an Australian batsman against India on Test debut. Michael Clarke’s 168 (151 + 17) in the 2004-05 Bangalore Test is an Australian record against India on debut.
 
# Dhoni has equalled Sourav Ganguly‘s feat of 21 Indian victories in Tests. As against Ganguly’s 49 Tests, Dhoni has played 44 as captain.
 
# Dhoni has not lost a single Test against Australia in India, winning all five contested by him as captain. India, for the first time, have won four consecutive Tests against Australia in India.
 
# India’s eight-wicket win is their 21st out of 83 played against Australia in Tests – winning % 25.30 (Drawn 23 and Tied 1).
 
# Only three bowlers – Vinoo Mankad, Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin – have captured 12 wickets or more for India in wins.
 
# Henriques and Lyon were associated in a stand of 66 – Australia’s second best against India for the last wicket, next only to the 77 between Dave Gilbert and Allan Border at Melbourne in December 1985 – both the instances are the only ones for Australia when last wicket had produced the highest partnership of the innings.
