Southampton: Jul 29, 2014

The following are the statistical highlights of the second day’s play in the third Test between India and England at Southampton.

# England (569 for 7d) posted their first ever total of 500 at The Rose Bowl, Southampton, surpassing their 377 for eight wickets declared against Sri Lanka in 2011.

# Jos Buttler‘s splendid 85 off 83 balls is the third highest by an England wicketkeeper on Test debut. Matt Prior had scored an unbeaten 126 against West Indies at Lord’s in May 2007 and Jack Russell’s 94 against Sri Lanka at Lord’s in 1988.

# Gary Ballance (156 off 258 balls) recorded a career-best score in Tests, eclipsing the 110 against India at Lord’s in the current rubber.

# Ballance enjoys a superb Test record, averaging 65.55 in six Tests — his aggregate being 590, including three centuries and two fifties.

# Ballance’s record in Tests in England is outstanding, aggregating 565 in eight innings at an average of 80.71.

# Ian Bell posted his 21st Test hundred — his fourth against India.

# Bell became the third batsmen to record 15 hundreds for England in Tests at home, sharing a record with Graham Gooch and Kevin Pietersen.

# Bell became the seventh batsmen to register 21 centuries or more for England in Tests, joining Alastair Cook (25), Kevin Pietersen (23), Geoff Boycott (22), Wally Hammond (22), Colin Cowdrey (22) and Andrew Strauss (21).

# Bell became the 11th player to amass 7,000 runs for England in Tests — his aggregate being 7068 at an average of 45.30 in 103 Tests. He is now the seventh batsman to total 4,000 runs for England in Tests in England — his aggregate being 4104 at an average of 52.61 in 56 Tests.

# Bell became the first batsman to register two centuries at The Rose Bowl, Southampton — 167 against India and 119 not out against Sri Lanka in 2011.

# Bell’s 167 off 256 balls is the highest score in Tests at The Rose Bowl, Southampton.

# Bell managed 286 runs at Southampton, averaging 286.00, in two innings, including two centuries.

# Pankaj’s bowling figures (0/146) are the most expensive by an Indian fast bowler in debut innings without claiming any wicket — the first two pacers to concede 100 runs without taking a wicket being Subrata Guha — 0/105 against England at Headingley in 1967 and Jaydev Unadkat — 0/101 against South Africa at Centurion Park in 2010-11.

# Pankaj’s performance is the second most expensive by a bowler in debut innings without capturing any wicket. Australia’s Bryce McGain had figures of 18-2-149-0 vs South Africa at Cape Town in March 2009.
