Southampton: Jul 28, 2014

Statistical highlights of the first day’s play in the third Test between India and England at Southampton on Sunday.

# Gary Ballance‘s unbeaten 104 is his third hundred in Tests — his second against India.

# Ballance, for the first time in consecutive Tests, has recorded hundreds. With 312 runs (ave.104.00), he is the leading run-scorer in the series for England.

# Ballance’s above tally is his best performance in a Test series, bettering the 201 (ave.67.00) in two Tests against Sri Lanka in 2014.

# Ballance’s tally of 538 (ave.67.25) in six Tests, is the highest for England this year.

# Alastair Cook‘s knock of 95 is his first innings in the nervous nineties as Test captain — his sixth in Tests.

# Since posting 51 against Australia at Melbourne in December 2013, Cook has recorded his first score of 30 in ten Test innings.

# Cook’s fifth fifty against India is his 36th in Tests. He became the ninth England captain to amass 2,000 runs or more in Tests — his tally being 2044 at 43.48 in 26 Tests.

# In the course of his aforesaid knock, Cook overtook the tallies of Kevin Pietersen (8181 runs at an average of 47.28 in 104 Tests) and David Gower (8231 (ave.44.25) in 117 Tests).

# Just two batsmen have managed more runs for England than Cook’s tally of 8257 (ave.45.61) in 107 Tests for England — Graham Gooch (8900) and Alec Stewart (8463).

# Since posting 65 by Michael Carberry and Cook against Australia at Melbourne in December 2013, the above partnership is England’s first stand of fifty or more for the opening wicket in 10 Test innings.

# Cook and Ballance were associated in a partnership of 158 — the highest for any wicket at The Rose Bowl, Southampton, eclipsing the 141 for the fifth wicket between Thilan Samaraweera and Kumar Sangakkara for Sri Lanka against England in 2011.

# Pankaj Singh, with 300 first-class wickets, became the 282nd cricketer to have played Test cricket for India.
