Statistical highlights at the end of first day’s play in the fifth Test between India and England at the Oval, on Friday.

# Mahendra Singh Dhoni is leading India in his 15th Test against England, bettering Sunil Gavaskar‘s tally of 14 — the highest tally by a captain in England-India Tests.

# Alastair Cook is appearing in his 107th successive Test, eclipsing Gavaskar’s tally of appearing in 106 Tests in a row. Mark Waugh had appeared in 107 Tests. Only Allan Border (153) has played more Tests in a row than Cook.

# Murali Vijay became the first Indian batsman to manage 400 runs in the present Test series – his aggregate is 400 (ave.44.44) in nine innings. He has totalled 400 runs or more in a Test series for the second time. In 2012-13 against Australia, he had totalled 430 (ave.61.42) in four Tests.

# For the second time in a Test series, Dhoni has registered four innings of fifty or more — the first instance being against Australia in India in 2008-09.

# Dhoni has so far faced 704 balls in the present rubber – the most faced by him in a series.

# Dhoni (82 off 140 balls) has recorded his 12th fifty against England. He has extended his record for most half-centuries against an opponent without registering a century. With Australia’s Monty Noble, he shares a record for most fifties (eight) without recording a hundred in England.

# Dhoni’s captain’s knock of 82 is his third innings of eighty-plus against England in Tests in England – his highest score being 92 at The Oval in 2007.

# Dhoni’s knock is his 24th fifty as captain – his 33rd in Tests. He has totalled 349 runs (ave. 38.77) — his best performance in a Test series, bettering the 326 (ave.81.50) in four Tests vs Australia in India in 2012-13.

# Dhoni has registered 55.41 % of runs in India’s total of 148, providing the first occasion of an Indian skipper recording more than 50% of runs in a team innings.

# Virat Kohli has recorded his worst performance in a Test rubber — his aggregate being 114 in nine innings at an average of 12.66. For the first time, he has not registered a Test fifty in nine consecutive innings.

# Dhoni and Ishant Sharma were involved in a stand of 58 — India’s highest tenth wicket stand in Tests when they lost nine wickets for less than 100 runs.

# In the present series, the tenth-wicket partnership has produced 466 (ave.42.36) in twelve innings — a record in a Test series, eclipsing the 458 (ave.24.10) in the 1924-25 series, involving England and Australia.

# Before registering 40 runs, India lost five wickets (36 runs) – the sixth occasion when they have lost their first five wickets for less than 40 in an innings in England.

# An Indian opening pair is without a fifty-run partnership in seventeen innings — the last fifty-run stand is 77 between Shikhar Dhawan and Murali Vijay against West Indies at Mumbai in November 2013.

# Ajinkya Rahane has recorded his first duck in eighteen innings in Tests.

# Indian batsmen have registered fourteen ducks in the present series as against three for England – all three from Ben Stokes.

# Chris Woakes (3/30) recorded his best bowling figures in Tests.

# Chris Jordan (3/32) registered his best bowling figures in Tests, eclipsing the 3 for 102 vs Sri Lanka at Lord’s in June 2014.
