The fourth Test of the 5-match series between India and England at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai ended in hosts favour. Batting first, England posted an impressive 400 on board with the help of debutant Keaton Jennings’ hundred, Moeen Ali’s fifty and Jos Buttler’s impressive 76 against Ravichandran Ashwin (6 for 112) and Ravindra Jadeja (4 for 109). In return, India replied strongly, banking on Virat Kohli’s 235, Murali Vijay’s 136 and Jayant Yadav’s maiden Test century (104). Adil Rashid took 4 wickets, but conceded 192 runs. India put up 631. England needed 231 to make India bat again, but collapsed on the fifth morning, being bowled out for 195 after being 141 for 3. There was resistance from Joe Root (77) and Jonny Bairstow (51), but there was little resistance against Ashwin (6 for 55). Abhishek Kumar presents some interesting numbers from the contest.

This was India’s 135th Test win, 93rd at home, 24th against England and 11th at Wankhede Stadium.

India have now won 24 Tests against England, their joint-most against any Test team. India have beaten Australia in 24 Tests as well. Apart from Australia and England, India have beaten New Zealand only in 20 or more Tests.

This was England’s 21st defeat for England under Alastair Cook, their joint-most under any Test captain. England lost 21 Tests under Michael Atherton.

This was India’s 17th consecutive Test without defeat under Kohli’s captaincy, their joint-longest unbeaten streak. Their previous such unbeaten streak came between September 1985 and March 1987 under Kapil Dev.

With this win, India have ensured their 5th consecutive Test series victory, their joint-best. India had enjoyed a similar run between October 2008 and January 2010.

India also registered their 8th win in 2016, their joint-most in a calendar year. India had won the same number of Tests in 2010. They still have a Test to play this year.

This is India’s 9th win in a Test series consisting of 5 or more matches. India have played 33 series of 5 or more Tests.

This was India’s 1st innings victory against any team after conceding 400 runs in the first innings. This is also England’s second innings defeat after scoring 400 in the first innings of a match. In fact, England and Sri Lanka are the only teams to have lost by an innings after scoring 400.

England lost their last 4 wickets for 13 runs, their third-lowest in a Test against India and second-worst in India. Their last 5 wickets fell for 15, their second-worst against India.

Ashwin has now 24 five-wicket haul in Tests, the 3rd-most by any Indian bowler after Anil Kumble (35) and Harbhajan Singh (25). Overall, Ashwin is currently joint-11th in terms of taking most 5-wicket hauls.

When he scalped Chris Woakes, Ashwin registered his 7th ten-wicket haul, 2nd-most by an Indian bowler after Kumble (8). Overall, Ashwin’s tally of 7 ten-wicket hauls is currently at joint-fifth spot after Muttiah Muralitharan (22), Shane Warne (10), Richard Hadlee (9) and Kumble (8).

During his course to 77, Root completed 1,000 Test runs against India. He became the 11th English batsman and 45th batsman to have scored 1,000 runs against India.

When he scored his 31st run, Bairstow became the second English batsman to score 1,400 Test runs in a calendar year after Michael Vaughan (1,481 runs in 2002). Bairstow has 1,420 Test runs in 2016 with a Test in hand.

Jayant became the 1st Indian batsman to score a hundred at No. 9. The previous highest by an Indian at this position was 90 by Farokh Engineer against New Zealand in 1965 at Madras (now Chennai). Overall, he became 15th batsman to hit a ton at No. 9. The last to do so was Stuart Broad in 2010 against Pakistan at Lord’s.

The 8th-wicket stand of 241 runs between Kohli and Jayant is a new Indian record. The previous highest 8th-wicket stand for India was 161 between Mohammad Azharuddin and Kumble, against South Africa at Calcutta (now Kolkata) in 1996-97. It is also the highest 9th-wicket stand on Indian soil, and the 7th-highest in history.

This was also the third-highest partnership for any wicket at Wankhede Stadium, after 298* (Dilip Vengsarkar and Ravi Shastri against Australia, 1986-87) and 256 (Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly against Sri Lanka, 1997-98).

Jennings became the 1st batsman to score a hundred and golden duck on his debut Test. Jennings also became the 4th batsman overall to score a hundred and a duck on his debut Test after Gundappa Viswanath, Andrew Hudson and Mohammad Wasim.

When he claimed Cook’s wicket in the second innings, Jadeja completed 100 Test wickets. Jadeja became the 20th Indian cricketer to claim 100 Test wickets. The last Indian bowler to claim 100 or more Test wickets was Ashwin. Jadeja’s bowling average of 24.88 is the second-best among all Indian bowlers who have scalped 100 or more wickets.

Of course, Ashwin has finished the Test with usual plethora of records. To read them, click here.

With 640 runs in this series so far, Kohli is the 2nd Indian captain to make 600 or more runs in a Test series after Gavaskar (732 against West Indies in 1978-79). This is the second time Kohli has scored more than 600 runs in a series. Gavaskar is the only other Indian to have done the same.

Kohli’s 235 is the highest score by an Indian captain in Tests. Kohli went past MS Dhoni’s 224 against Australia in 2013.

Kohli has scored 1,200 runs in 2016, the most among all Indian captains in a calendar year. He went past Rahul Dravid’s tally of 1,095 runs in 2006.

Kohli has hit 133 boundaries in 2016 in Tests, the most by any Indian captain in a calendar year. He went past Tendulkar’s tally of 131 in 1997.

James Anderson has now scored his 16th unbeaten nought in Test cricket, going past Bhagwat Chandrasekhar and Courtney Walsh (15 each). He is behind only Chris Martin (28) and Makhaya Ntini (18).

In England’s second innings, Cook, Jennings and Root presented only the 40th instance (6th for England, 4th against India) of the first three batsmen in a line-up being dismissed LBW. Three of four instances against India have come this season. Before today, the others two occasions came at Indore (Tom Latham, Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson) and at Visakhapatnam (Cook, Haseeb Hameed and Root).

Ashwin claimed 6 wickets in the England first innings and Jadeja 4. This is the 24th instance of two Indian bowlers taking all 10 wickets in an innings. Also, the duo became 19th Indian bowling pair to do this in an innings of a Test.

Murali Vijay scored his 8th Test hundred, all of them as opener. Of Indian openers, only Gavaskar (33), Virender Sehwag (22) and Gautam Gambhir (9) has more Test hundreds, while Navjot Sidhu also has 8.
