Statistical highlights on Day Two of the second and final Test between India and New Zealand at Basin Reserve.

# Ajinkya Rahane (118 off 158 balls) recorded his maiden Test century, surpassing the 96 vs South Africa at Durban in December last year. He became the fifth Indian batsman to record a Test hundred at Basin Reserve, joining Gautam Gambhir (167 in 2009), Ajit Wadekar (143 in 1968), Sachin Tendulkar (113 in 1998) and Mohammad Azharuddin (103 not out in 1998).

# Rahane is the fifth Indian player to post a hundred while batting at number seventh position away from home. Kapil Dev remains the only one to have registered two hundreds — 100 not out at Port of Spain in March 1983 and 129 at Port Elizabeth in December 1992.

# Mahendra Singh Dhoni (68) recorded his highest score in New Zealand in Tests, eclipsing the 56 not out at Wellington in April 2009. Overall he has registered three fifties in consecutive innings in New Zealand — all at Basin Reserve.

# At Basin Reserve, Dhoni is averaging 88.00 — 176 in three innings, including three fifties. His sixth fifty against New Zealand is his 29th in Tests.

# Rahane and Dhoni were associated in a stand of 120 – India’s highest for the seventh wicket at wellington and their second best in New Zealand, next only to the 128 between Kiran More and Sachin Tendulkar in the 1989-90 Napier Test.

# Ishant Sharma (26 off 50 balls) has recorded his highest Test score outside the sub-continent besides posting his highest against New Zealand.

# Dhoni completed his 3,000 runs as Indian skipper in Tests — his tally being 3037 at an average of 42.18 in 53 Tests, including five centuries and 20 fifties. Sunil Gavaskar (3449 (ave.50.72) in 47 Tests) was the first to achieve the distinction.

# India (438) posted their highest total at Basin Reserve, eclipsing the 434 for seven wickets declared in April 2009.

# India took a first innings lead of 246 against New Zealand — their highest in a Test match in New Zealand in the first innings. The lead is their second highest against New Zealand in the first innings in Tests behind the 376-run lead in the Nagpur Test in November 2010. The last instance when India had a first innings lead of 200 or more outside sub-continent was against New Zealand in the 2008-09 Hamilton Test.

# India have accomplished a run-rate of 4.26 — their second highest outside the sub-continent when they have managed atleast 400 — their highest is 4.61 during their total of 482 off 104.3 overs against New Zealand at Auckland in February 1990.

# Shikhar Dhawan (98) registered his third highest score in Tests behind the 187 on Test debut against Australia in March last year and 115 against New Zealand at Auckland in February last week.

# Dhawan has amassed 213 at an average of 71.00, including a hundred — the highest by an Indian batsman in the current rubber. He has totalled 200 runs or more in a Test series forthe firt time.

# Dhawan has become the fifth Indian player to be dismissed in the nervous nineties against New Zealand in New Zealand in Tests. Rusi Surti (99 at Auckland in 1968), Navjot Singh Sidhu (98 at Hamilton in 1994), W.V.Raman (96 at Christchurch in 1990) and Manoj Prabhakar (95 at Napier in 1990) had been the previous victims.

# Watling has become the third New Zealand wicketkeeper to effect five dismissals in a Test innings at Basin Reserve, Wellington. He has joined Roy Harford (vs India in 1967-68) and Warren Lees (vs Sri Lanka in 1982-83).

# Watling has become the first New Zealand wicketkeeper to effect five dismissals in a Test innings against India twice — Auckland and Wellington Tests in 2014. In three consecutive Tests, he has effected five dismissals or more in a Test innings — the first New Zealand wicketkeeper to do so.

# With 14 dismissals in three innings in the current rubber, Watling is a New Zealand record against India in a Test series, eclipsing the 13 by Ian Smith in five innings in 1980-81. It is a New Zealand record in a two-Test series.

# Rahane and Dhoni have provided the 12th instance when India’s number seven and eight have recorded half-centuries in the same Test innings.
