The third Test of the five-match series between India and England at Mohali ended in hosts favour. After bowling England out for 236, India needed only 103 to win. India did not had a great start in the chase as they lost two wickets in form of of Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara. But comeback man Parthiv Patel played a stunning knock of 67 not out from just 54 balls to ensured India’s victory. Skipper Virat Kohli, who was at the other end when India completed their comprehensive win, hugged Parthiv to celebrate his team’s well-earned victory. Abhishek Kumar looks at this emphatic win and presents some interesting and record breaking numbers.

758 runs for Ben Stokes at number 6 in 2016: This is the seventh-most runs scored by a batsman at No. 6 in a calendar year after VVS Laxman (941 runs in 2002), Sir 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 No. 6.

India lead the series by 2-0 against England: First instance since 1993 for India to have won two Tests in a series against England.

Parthiv completed his fifty from 39 balls: Second fastest fifty by an Indian wicketkeeper in Tests. MS Dhoni holds the record for fastest fifty by an Indian keeper by hitting a half-century in 34 balls against Pakistan in 2006 at Faisalabad.

Parthiv’s fifty came after 12 years and 44 days: This is the second longest gap for any player to score a Test fifty after Lala Amarnath (12 years, 6 months and 7 days) between 1933 to 1946.

Haseeb Hameed faced 640 balls in this series so far: This is the second-most number of balls faced by a debutant in his first series in India after Michael Clarke (722 balls in 2004-05). Also, Hameed has faced second most balls in the ongoing series after Kohli (707 balls).

11 fifty plus scores for Joe Root in 2016: Joint second-most by any English batsman in a calendar year in Tests after Root (13 in 2015), Keith Fletcher (11 in 1973) and Alastair Cook (11 in 2015). Also, this is the most number of fifty plus score by any batsman in 2016. Closest to Root is Jonny Bairstow, with 10 scores in excess of 50 in 2016.

16th consecutive Test for India without any defeat: India’s second longest undefeated sequence. Their longest is of 17 Tests between 1985 and 1987.

India’s 12th Test win under Virat Kohli’s captaincy in his first 20 Tests. Interestingly, Kohli s numbers stack up similar to that of MS Dhoni after their respective 20 Tests as India captains.

India’s win/loss ratio at Mohali in Tests – 7: Fourth best win-loss ratio of any team at a ground after Pakistan (10.5 at National Stadium, Karachi), South Africa (8.5 at SuperSport Park, Centurion) and England (8 at AMI Stadium, Christchurch).

18 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).

965 runs for Kohli in 2016: This is the third-most runs by an Indian captain in a calendar year after Rahul Dravid (1,095 runs in 2006) and Sachin Tendulkar (1,000 runs in 1997). Kohli went past Sourav Ganguly s tally of 945 runs, in 2002.

1,355 runs for Bairstow in 2016: This is the fifth-most runs by an English player in a calendar year after Michael Vaughan (1,481 runs in 2002), followed by Joe Root (1,385 runs in 2015), Dennis Amiss (1,379 runs in 1974) and Alastair Cook (1,364 runs in 2015).

10,934 runs for Cook in Tests: He is now 10th highest run-getter in Tests after Sachin Tendulkar (15,921 runs), Ricky Ponting (13,378 runs), Jacques Kallis (13,289 runs), Rahul Dravid (13,288 runs), Kumar Sangakkara (12,400 runs), Brian Lara (11,953 runs), Shivnarine Chanderpaul (11,867 runs), Mahela Jayawardene (11,814 runs) and Allan Border (11,174 runs). Cook also went past Steve Waugh s tally of 10,927 Test runs.

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.

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.

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.

Karun Nair became 12th Indian player to get run out on his debut Test. Last Indian to achieve this unwanted feat was Anil Kumble in 1990 against Manchester.
