# New Zealand (105) have posted their fourth lowest total against India — their lowest Test total is 94 at Hamilton in the 2002-03 Test.

# New Zealand’s lowest total vs India at Auckland is 101 off 61.4 overs in March 1968.

# India have dismissed their opponent’s first five batsmen for 25 runs or less five times in an innings — once each against Pakistan, Zimbabwe, Australia, West Indies and New Zealand.

# Seventeen wickets were taken on the third day — the second most in an Auckland Test. Eighteen wickets fell on the first day in a Test match involving Australia and New Zealand in March 1974.
