New Delhi: Mar 23, 2013

Statistical highlights on the second day of the fourth and final cricket Test between India and Australia at Delhi on Saturday.

# Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara have shared a stand of 108 — India’s second highest opening partnership against Australia at Feroz Shah Kotla — after 121 between Nari Contractor and Pankaj Roy in December 1959.

# Ravindra Jadeja (43 off 49 balls) has posted his highest Test score.

# Ravichandran Ashwin has recorded an economy rate of 1.67 — his best ever in a Test innings.

# Ashwin (5 for 57) became the sixth Indian bowler to take five wickets in an innings against Australia at Kotla. Bedi’s figures of five for 37 in the 1969-70 are the best ever by an Indian bowler against Australia at this venue.

# Ashwin has recorded his second best figures against Australia, next only to his career-best seven for 103 at Chennai last month.

# Ashwin has recorded his ninth instance of five wickets in an innings — his fourth against Australia in the current rubber — joining Subhash Gupte (vs New Zealand in 1955-56), Bhagwat Chandrasekhar (vs England in 1972-73), Harbhajan Singh (vs Australia in 2000-01). All the bowlers share an Indian record for producing five wickets or more four times in a Test series.

# Vijay (57) has recorded his first fifty against Australia — his third in Tests. In the course of his innings, he has completed 1000 runs in Tests, totalling 1028 in 16 matches at an average of 39.53, including three centuries.

# Vijay, with 419 runs at an average of 69.83, is the top run-getter in the series. He is the only batsman to amass 400 runs or more in the current series.

 # Peter Siddle (51) has registered his first Test fifty, eclipsing the 43 against England at Sydney in January 2011.

# Siddle has become the fifth number nine Australian batsman to post a fifty against India.

# Pattinson and Siddle were associated in a 54-run stand for the ninth wicket — Australia’s highest against India at Feroz Shah Kotla.

# Pujara (52) has recorded his second fifty in Tests.

# With his 61st lbw dismissal, Tendulkar has extended his unwanted feat in Tests.

# Dhoni (314 at an average of 78.50) has recorded his highest tally in a Test series, bettering 307 (ave.61.40) in the four-Test series against Australia in 2008-09.

# Nathan Lyon (5 for 94) has recorded his first five-wicket haul against India — his third in Tests. His first two five-wicket hauls were five for 34 on debut against Sri Lanka at Galle in 2011 and five for 68 against the West Indies at Port of Spain in 2012.

# Lyon has become the third Australian spinner after Ashley Mallett (6 for 64 in 1969-70) and Richie Benaud (5 for 76 in 1959-60) to record a five-wicket haul at Kotla.
