This was Bangladesh s first Test on Indian soil. With this, every Test-playing nation has now played in every other Test-playing nation. Additionally, every team barring India, Bangladesh, and Zimbabwe have also played Tests in UAE. India have played 3 Tests at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad, drawing the first and winning the most recent two.

When he scored 36, Virat Kohli became the 1st Indian captain to score 1,000 runs in a season and 7th overall after Ricky Ponting (1,483 in 2005-06), Brian Lara (1,253 in 2003-04), Michael Clarke (1,178 in 2012-13, 1,141 in 2011-12), Graeme Smith (1,107 in 2011-12), Graham Gooch (1,058 in 1990) and Bob Simpson (1,007 in 1964-65). Kohli was also the 7th Indian player to achieve this feat after Gautam Gambhir (1,269 in 2008-09), Rahul Dravid (1,241 in 2003-04, 1,006 in 2002), Mohinder Amarnath (1,182 in 1982-83), Sunil Gavaskar (1,179 in 1978-79, 1,027 in 1979-80) and Virender Sehwag (1,128 in 2004-05, 1,079 in 2003-04).

Kohli has 1,075 runs in this season, the 2nd-most by a batsman in a home season after Sehwag s 1,105 in 2004-05. Kohli went past Gooch s tally of 1,058 in 1990. Kohli also became the 2nd captain to score 1,000 runs in a home season after Gooch.

Kohli hit 12 fours during his unbeaten knock of 111 runs. He now has 118 fours against his name in 2016-17, the 2nd-most by an Indian captain in a season after Gavaskar (119 in 1979-80). Kohli went past Tendulkar s tally of 109 fours in 1999-00. Of course, this excludes earlier matches, where the number of boundaries hit is not documented.

KL Rahul was dismissed in the first over of the day off Taskin Ahmed s bowling. This was the 5th instance of Bangladesh bowler taking wicket in the first over of the Test and their second such instance against India. The last time a Bangladesh bowler did this against India was in May 2007 by Mashrafe Mortaza, who took the wicket of Wasim Jaffer in the first ball of the match.

Rahul has been dismissed for under 40 in 15 of his 20 Test innings. His other 5 innings have fetched him 4 hundreds and a fifty.

With a boundary off Mehedi Hasan, Cheteshwar Pujara became the highest run-getter in an Indian First-Class season. He broke Chandu Borde s record of 1,604 runs in 1964-65. Pujara has played in only 21 innings, while Borde had scored his runs in 28 innings. Pujara came close to breaking Borde s record in 2012-13 when he scored 1,585 runs. It must be remembered here that Pujara has a full 4-Test series against Australia in hand.

Pujara and Murali Vijay added 178 runs for the second wicket. This was their 5th century stand, the most by any Indian pair in a season. They went past the existing record of 4, held jointly by Vijay Hazare and Rusi Modi in 1948-49, Chetan Chauhan and Gavaskar in 1978-79, Aakash Chopra and Sehwag in 2003-04, and Dravid and Gambhir in 2008-09.

This was also the 7th century stand between Pujara and Vijay for the second wicket. They are now level with Gambhir and Dravid, and one behind Gavaskar and Amarnath, and Sehwag and Dravid.

Pujara and Vijay have now added 2,429 runs 67.47. This is the highest average among Indian pairs with 2,000 runs. Sourav Ganguly and Tendulkar are next, with 61.36.

This was Vijay s 9th Test hundred. With this ton, Vijay equalled Gambhir s tally of 9 hundreds as an Indian opener. He now has the joint 3rd-most centuries by an Indian opener after Gavaskar (33) and Sehwag (22).

Vijay and Pujara have added 852 runs in 2016-17, the 2nd-most by a pair in an Indian season after Chauhan and Gavaskar (913 in 1979-80). Pujara and Vijay went past Dravid and Tendulkar s 806 in 2000-01.

Kohli scored his 16th hundred in Tests. This was also his 9th Test hundred as captain, which put him at par with Mohammad Azharuddin. Only Gavaskar (11) has more hundreds as an Indian Test captain.

This was also Kohli s 4th Test hundred in 2016-17. He equalled Gavaskar s tally of most hundreds (4 in 1978-79) by an Indian captain in a season. Gavaskar also had 3 hundreds in 1979-80. On a similar note, Kohli had also hit 3 in 2014-15

This was also Kohli s 12th hundred at No. 4, the joint 2nd most by an Indian batsman, at par with Gundappa Viswanath. The record is held by Tendulkar (44).

With this century, Kohli has now scored centuries against all seven opponents in Tests. This was his first Test hundred against Bangladesh. He has not played against Pakistan and Zimbabwe.

India scored 356 runs on Day One of this Test, their 4th-highest total at home after 417 against Sri Lanka in 2009, 385 against Sri Lanka in 2009 and 365 against Pakistan in 2007.

Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have added 1,467 runs between them for the 4th wicket, at 66.68. This is the highest average by an Indian pair for 4th wicket (qualification: 1,000 runs) and 7th overall.

Karun Nair became the third cricketer to miss a Test (after Simpson and Inzamam-ul-Haq) immediately after scoring a triple-hundred. Additionally, Andy Sandham s treble had come in his last Test.

This was the first time India went in with three seamers (Ishant Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Umesh Yadav) in a home Test since the Bengaluru Test of 2015-16 against South Africa, when they had picked Ishant, Varun Aaron and Stuart Binny. The record is four, which has happened several times.
