India‘s humiliation at the hands of England at the Oval  reached a whole new level when they crashed to their third-worst defeat in Tests. The visiting team were thrashed by an innings and 244 runs after they were bowled out for 94 in their second innings.

India’s defeat opens a can of worms for the team whose overseas woes grow with each passing tour. With a 338-run lead before them, the tourists collapsed like a pack of cards. Just before the lunch interval, India had already slumped to nine for two, losing both openers. After an extended lunch break due to rain, a procession ensued in the middle as India kept losing wickets at regular intervals. Only Virat Kohli showed a little semblance of fight, but his innings was also done by the time he got to 20.

Following are the statistical highlights of the third day’s play in the fifth and final cricket Test between India and England at The Oval :

# India (94) have posted their sixth lowest total in a Test innings in England – their lowest is 42 at Lord’s in 1974. Their previous lowest total at The Oval was 98 in 1952.

# James Anderson has captured 25 wickets at 20.60 runs apiece. For the first time, he has taken 25 wickets in a Test series, bettering his 24 wickets (average 26.04) in five Tests against Australia in the Ashes series Down Under in 2010-11.

# Anderson has got his third ‘Player of the Series’ award – his second against India. He had first received the award against India in 2007.

# Chris Jordan (four for 18) has recorded his best bowling figures in an innings as well as in a Test match (seven for 50).

# Bhuvneshwar Kumar has received his first ‘Player of the series’ award in Tests – his run-aggregate being 247 (average 27.44) runs and 19 wickets (average 26.63).

# Cheteshwar Pujara has so far averaged 20.14 in Tests in 2014 – his aggregate being 282 in 14 innings, including a fifty.

# Pujara, in the just concluded series, has averaged 22.20 – his tally being 222 in ten innings. The said average is the poorest by India’s number three batsman in England in a Test series (minimum qualification: five innings). In the 2007 Test series against England in England, Rahul Dravid had averaged 25.20 – his tally being 126 in six innings.

# Root is the top run-scorer for England in Tests this year – his aggregate being 777 in eleven innings at an average of 97.12. His outstanding average is the highest by any batsman this year (minimum 200 runs).

# Gautam Gambhir has produced his worst batting performance in a Test series when he has played at least two Tests – his tally being 25 in four innings at an average of 6.25.

# India have recorded their third largest defeat in Tests – the largest being by an innings and 336 runs to the West Indies at Eden Gardens, Kolkata in 1958-59 and by an innings and 285 runs to England at Lord’s in 1974.

# India have lost seven Tests by an innings and 200 runs – four against England.

# India’s huge defeat at The Oval is the largest under Mahendra Singh Dhoni‘s leadership.

# England’s excellent victory by an innings and 244 runs is their second largest over India, next only to an innings and 285 runs’ victory at Lord’s in 1974. In all, England have won 13 Tests by an innings margin against India, including three at The Oval.

# India have lost two consecutive Tests within three days by an innings margins.

# India have earned a dubious distinction by losing five consecutive overseas Test series – to England in 2011, to Australia in 2011-12, to South Africa in 2013-14, to New Zealand in 2013-14 and to England in 2014.

# England have recorded the series victory by winning the last three Tests despite trailing by 2-0 after the first two Tests – the second such instance in a five-Test series.

Australia had lost the first two Tests but won the next three against England in Australia in 1936-37.

# Joe Root has posted his fifth Test hundred – all in England. His superb unbeaten 149 off 165 balls is his second century against India. He had scored 154 not out at Trent Bridge last month.

# Root, after the Oval Test, is averaging fifty-plus in his Test career – his aggregate being 1732 runs (average 50.94) in 22 Tests.

# Root’s series tally of 518 (ave.103.60) in seven innings, is his best ever performance in a Test series. The said aggregate is the second highest series aggregate by England’s number five or six in a Test series. Ian Bell had totalled 562 (ave.62.44) against Australia in England last year.

# Three England batsmen have managed five hundreds or more before completing 24 – Alastair Cook (7), Len Hutton (5) and Root (5).

# Root and Jordan were involved in a stand of 82 – England’s highest eighth-wicket stand against India at The Oval.

# With 17 dismissals (all caught) in five Tests, Dhoni has equalled Matt Prior‘s tally of 17 dismissals (16 catches + 1 stumping) in four Tests in 2011. Both now share a record for most dismissals in a Test series between England and India.

# Ishant Sharma has taken 29 wickets at 26.13 runs apiece in five Tests – the most by an Indian bowler in Tests in 2014.

# Ravichandran Ashwin (three for 72) has recorded his best bowling performance away from home.

# Virat Kohli has failed to post a half-century in ten innings in succession – an unwanted feat achieved by him for the first time in Tests.
