# The above stand is the third highest opening partnership for India in Tests, behind the 413 by Vinoo Mankad and Pankaj Roy vs New Zealand at Chepauk, Chennai in 1955-56 and 410 by Rahul Dravid and Virender Sehwag vs Pakistan at Lahore in 2005-06.

# The said partnership is the second highest by any opening pair against Australia, behind the 323 by Jack Hobbs and Wilfred Rhodes against England at Melbourne in 1911-12.
