Kolkata: Nov 6, 2012

Statistical highlights of the second day’s play in the third cricket Test between India and England at Kolkata on Thursday.

# Mahendra Singh Dhoni (52 off 114 balls) has recorded his 27th fifty in Tests – his seventh against England.

# Dhoni’s home record is excellent, aggregating 1909 runs at an average of 43.38, including four hundreds and 14 fifties, in 35 matches.

# At Eden Gardens, Dhoni took his tally to 415 runs in five innings at an average of 138.33, including two hundreds and three fifties. At this venue, he has posted three fifty-plus innings in succession for the first time – an unbeaten 132 against South Africa in February 2010; 144 against West Indies in November 2011 and 52 against England in the present Test.

# Nick Compton (57) has recorded his maiden fifty in Tests.

# Alastair Cook is the tenth batsman to cross 7,000 runs in Test Cricket for England. At 27 years 347 days, he became the youngest ever to achieve the feat, beating Sachin Tendulkar‘s record of reaching 7000 runs in 28 years 193 days.

# Cook has taken 151 innings to complete 7,000 runs – the third quickest for England, next only to Wally Hammond(131) and Kevin Pietersen (150).

# Cook’s above innings is the highest by an England skipper at Eden Garden. Tony Greig was the first England skipper to register a hundred – 103 in 1976-77.

# With his majestic unbeaten 136 – his 23rd hundred, Cook holds a record for most hundreds for England in Tests. He became the fourth England batsman to register three hundreds in a Test rubber against India and joined Ken Barrington (1961-62), Graham Gooch (1990) and Michael Vaughan (2002).

# Cook became the fifth overseas player to record three or more centuries in a Test rubber against India in India.

Everton Weekes is the only one to post four hundreds while Garry Sobers, Ken Barrington and Hashim Amkla have recorded three each.

# Alastair Cook and Nick Compton have recorded their highest partnership (165) in the series, eclipsing the 123 at Motera. The pair has managed 438 runs at an average of 109.50 in the current rubber.

# The above opening stand is a record for England against India at Eden Gardens, Kolkata, behind the 178 between Graeme Fowler and Tim Robinson at Chepauk, Chennai in January 1985.

The said stand is the sixth highest for the first wicket for England against India in Tests.

# Cook, with 493 runs at an average of 164.33, is all set to become the first England captain to manage 500 runs in a Test series against India on Indian soil. The previous record stood in Ted Dexter’s name – 409 (ave 58.42) in five matches in 1961-62.

# Cook has joined Sobers and these two are the only two left-handed skippers to have registered three centutries in the same Test series against India.
