Jonny Bairstow scored his 10th fifty in 2016 AFP

The third Test of the five-match series between India and England is being played at Mohali. England, who were beaten by India in the previous Test, are eager to bounce back in the series. Batting first, they started on a decent note but soon began losing wickets. They lost four wickets at the score of 87 and were 4 for 92 at lunch. With all the top four batsmen back in pavilion, England were surely in some trouble but once again Jonny Bairstow bailed his side out of troubled waters by scoring 89. England s comeback man Jos Buttler played a promising knock by making 43. However, Indian bowlers maintained the upper hand over England by getting wickets on regular intervals.

There was sloppy work in the field as well from the Indian side. England captain Alastair Cook was dropped twice and a total of four catches were dropped throughout the day. Despite that, Indian bowlers bowled excellently, especially Umesh Yadav, Jayant Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja, as they scalped two wickets each, while Mohammed Shami and Ravichandran Ashwin got one each. At the end of Day One of the Test, England scored 268 for the loss of 8 wickets. The day surely ended in India s favour and from the day s play, we present some interesting numbers.

10th fifty-plus score by Bairstow in 2016 in Tests joint-most by any player in this year and fourth-joint-most overall by an English cricketer in calendar year after Joe Root (13 and 10 in 2015 and 2016), Keith Fletcher (11 in 1973), Alastair Cook (11 in 2015) and Kevin Pietersen (10 in 2006).

Bairstow also became the 8th England batsman to score above 1,300 in a calendar year in Tests. The record for most runs in a calendar year by an English batsman is held by Michael Vaughan (1,481 runs in 2002), followed by Joe Root (1,385 runs in 2015), Dennis Amiss (1,379 runs in 1974), Alastair Cook (1,364 runs in 2015), Kevin Pietersen (1,343 runs in 2006) and Jonathan Trott (1,325 runs in 2010).

83 consecutive Tests missed by Parthiv Patel since his last appearance in 2008. This is the 10th-most consecutive matches to be missed by any player for any team after Gareth Batty (142 Tests), Martin Bicknell (114 Tests), Floyd Reifer (109 Tests), Younis Ahmed (104 Tests), Derek Shackleton (103 Tests), Les Jackson (96 Tests), Pat Pocock (86 Tests), Wayne Larkins (85 Tests) and Liam Plunkett (85 Tests).

Parthiv became 8th Indian wicketkeeper to take 50 or more dismissals in Tests. Parthiv bagged two dismissals on Day One of this Test and is currently at joint-sixth spot in terms of most dismissals by an Indian wicketkeeper after MS Dhoni (294), Syed Kirmani (198), Kiran More (130), Nayan Mongia (107), Farokh Engineer (82) and Naren Tamhane (51).

Virat Kohli has never played with the same XI in any of the Test he has captained India in. So far, he has lead India in 20 Tests and Ajinkya Rahane is the only player to play in all 20 matches under Kohli.

Karun Nair became 287th Test player for India and 14th since 2012. This is the least number of players making Test debut for a team since 2012. Nair is also the 93rd Indian to debut against England most from India against any team.

Nair is the third debutant in this series after Haseeb Hameed and Jayant Yadav. Last instance of three players making their Test debut in a series in India was in 2013 against West Indies.

758 runs for Ben Stokes at number 6 in 2016. This is the seventh-most runs scored by a batsman at number 6 in a calendar year after VVS Laxman (941 runs in 2002), Garry Sobers (825 runs in 1966), AB de Villiers (811 runs in 2008), Mike Hussey (801 runs in 2012), Ricky Ponting (788 runs in 1999) and Andrew Flintoff (778 runs in 2004). Stokes needs 21 more to become the highest run-getter for England in a calendar year at number 6.

835 runs for Joe Root at number 3 in 2016. This is the sixth-most runs scored by an English batsman at number 6 in a calendar year after Jonathan Trott (1,206 runs in 2010 and 961 runs in 2012), Ted Dexter (965 runs in 1962), Mark Butcher (937 runs in 2003) and Bill Edrich (843 runs in 1947). Root needs 9 more runs to become the fifth highest run-getter in a calendar year from England at number 6.

6th time Ravichandran Ashwin scalped Alastair Cook s wicket in Tests second-most by any Indian bowler after

Ishant Sharma (8 times).
