Jonny Bairstow has now most wickets in a calendar year as a wicketkeeper in Tests AFP

The third day of the third Test between India and England started with hosts reeling at 271 for 6. Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja resumed India s innings but the partnership was broken after they added 30 more runs. Ashwin got dismissed after an impactful 72, following which Jadeja, along with his new partner Jayant Yadav began rebuilding. The duo went on to add 80 runs for eighth wicket with Jadeja ended up scoring his career-best 90. Jayant completed his fifty too, and India posted a resolute 417 with a strong lead of 134. Ben Stokes played the key role in bowling India out on Day Three, as he picked a total of five wickets.

England started their second innings without Haseeb Hameed, because of a possible fracture in his little finger. Alastair Cook and Joe Root England s best bet with the bat came out at a precarious position. Just like in the first innings, Ashwin picked Cook’s wicket and towards the end of the day’s play, the Indian spinner had scalped a total of three wickets. However, Root remained unbeaten on 36. England are currently four wickets down with 78 on board. Let us take a look at some fascinating numbers from Day Three:

17 wickets for Adil Rashid in this series so far: Fourth instance of most wickets by a visiting leg-spinner in a series in India after Richie Benaud (29 and 23 wickets in 1959 and 1956 respectively) and Danish Kaneria (19 wickets in 2005).

68 dismissals for Jonny Bairstow in 2016: This is the most number of dismissals by a wicketkeeper in a calendar year. He went past Ian Healy’s record of 67 dismissals in 1993.

65 catches for Bairstow in 2016: Joint-most by any wicketkeeper in a calendar year with Mark Boucher, who took same number of catches in 1998.

First instance of India’s No. 7, 8 and 9 batsmen scored 50 plus each in the same innings of a Test. Ashwin, Jadeja and Jayant were the Indian batsman to score fifties at No. 7, 8 and 9. Overall, this is the seventh such instance by any team after New Zealand in 1976 and 2004, England in 1981, West Indies in 1986 and Zimbabwe in 2001 and 2003. Also, this was the 14th instance of three batsmen from a team scoring fifties from No. 7 onwards.

90 runs from 170 balls by Jadeja: First instance of Jadeja facing 100 or more balls in a Test innings, and the score 90 is also his personal best. His previous highest of 68, was also against England in 2014 at Lord’s. In addition, his previous best in terms of balls faced was of 98, which came against England at Nottingham in 2014.

Ashwin enters the club of legendary all-rounders: With 1,000 runs and 200 plus wickets, he became sixth Indian cricketer to achieve this feat after Kapil Dev, Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan.

230 runs added by India’s No. 7 to 11 batsman: Most by India at home and third most overall, after 259 runs in 2007 against England and 234 runs in 2014 against New Zealand.

Jayant Yadav becomes 11th Indian to score a fifty at No. 9 against England after Amar Singh (51 in 1932), Farokh Engineer (65 in 1962), Bapu Nadkarni (52* in 1964), Abid Ali (71 in 1974), Syed Kirmani (67 in 1981), Kiran More (61* in 1990), Javagal Srinath (52 in 1996), Harbhajan Singh (54 in 2002), Anil Kumble (58 in 2006) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (58, 63* and 52 in 2014).

125 wickets of left-handed batsman by Ashwin: The ace Indian spinner is now fourth in the list to have dismissed most left-handers, after Kumble (167), Harbhajan (139) and Zaheer (133).

7th time Ashwin scalped Alastair Cook s wicket in Tests: Most by any spinner in the world and second-most by any Indian bowler after Ishant Sharma (8 times). Also, this is the joint-most dismissals of a batsman by Ashwin along with Ed Cowan, whom the former dismissed seven times in Tests.

80-run partnership between Jadeja and Jayant for 8th wicket: Fourth biggest partnership for 8th wicket by an Indian pair against England at home. Also, first such instance of India’s 8th-wicket pair scoring 75 plus runs against England at home since 2006.
