Statistical highlights of the first day’s play in the second and final Test between India and New Zealand.

# Ishant Sharma (six for 51) has recorded his career-best performance in Tests, his second instance of five wickets in an innings vs New Zealand and his fifth overall.

# Ishant’s previous best figures in a Test innings was six for 55 against West Indies at Bridgetown in June 2011. His performance is the best by an Indian pacer in a Test innings in New Zealand, surpassing his own figures of six for 134 at Auckland in the first Test of the present series.

# Ishant became the first Indian fast bowler to claim six wickets in a Test innings twice in New Zealand. No other Indian pacer has accomplished the feat even once.

# Ishant is the eighth Indian bowler and the fourth seamer to complete 100 wickets or more away from home in Tests. Eight bowlers are Anil Kumble (269), Kapil Dev (215), Zaheer Khan (202), Harbhajan Singh (148), Bishan Singh Bedi (129), Javagal Srinath (128), Ishant Sharma (102) and Bhagwat Chandrasekhar (100).

# With his tally of 15 wickets (ave. 14.20) in three innings, Ishant now holds another record by an Indian medium pacer in a Test series vs New Zealand, breaking the 13 wickets each captured by three bowlers —  Ramakant Desai in 1964-65;  Srinath in 1999-2000 and Zaheer  in 2008-09.

# Ishant became the second Indian speedster to take five wickets or more in an innings twice in New Zealand in Tests.

# Zaheer holds an Indian record for registering three five-wicket hauls in Tests in New Zealand — two at Wellington and one at Hamilton.

# Mohammed Shami ( four for 70) has recorded his best bowling figures in an innings overseas — his second best in a Test innings behind the five for 47 against the West Indies at Kolkata in November last year. His previous best figures against New Zealand was three for 37 in the second innings at Auckland in the first Test of the current rubber.

# Shami took his tally to 25 wickets (ave. 25.88) in his first six Tests. His tally includes three instances of four wickets or more in an innings.

# Zaheer for the first time in a completed innings, could not take a single wicket against New Zealand in New Zealand.

# For the first time in Tests, Shikhar Dhawan has recorded consecutive innings of fifty-plus, scoring 115 at Auckland and 71 not out at Wellington.

# Dhawan, thanks to his brilliant unbeaten 71 has completed his 500 runs in seven Tests, aggregating 505 in ten innings at an average of 56.11, including two centuries and a fifty.

# Bradley-John Watling has registered his fifth duck in Tests — his first vs India.

# James Neesham (33 off 35 balls) has registered strike rate of 94.28 — the best by a New Zealand number eight batsman on Test debut apart from the highest by any New Zealand batsman on Test debut against India (minimum qualification 30).

# All ten wickets have been claimed by Indian fast bowlers in a Test innings twelve times. The Wellington Test is the first instance when they captured all ten wickets in a Test innings vs New Zealand.

# The last instance when all ten wickets in an innings for India were captured by speedsters was in the Ahmedabad Test vs West Indies in November 1983 — Kapil Dev ( nine for 83) and Balwinder Sandhu ( one for 45).
