Six of India's batsmen fell without scoring and it was the second time that three of their top-four were part of that list
August 7, 2014
1 Number of away Tests India have won after scoring 200 or less in the first innings. They scored exactly 200 against West Indies at Sabina Park in 2006. However, in home Tests, India have managed to win five times from such situations.
8/4 India's score after 5.1 overs at Old Trafford. There have only been two previous occasions when India have lost four wickets for fewer runs - 6 for 4 and 0 for 4 at The Oval and Leeds during their tour to England in 1952.
6 India equalled the record for the most ducks in an innings with six ducks in their innings. Only four times have so many batsmen fallen without scoring. India have sustained five ducks on three occasions. This was the second time that three of India's top-four batsmen have been dismissed for nought.
10.31 Stuart Broad's bowling average when he takes a five-for, which is better than James Anderson's (12.39). Among bowlers with at least ten five-wicket hauls, only Glenn McGrath (9.7) and Dale Steyn (10.28) are more effective. While McGrath and Steyn have career averages closer to 20, Broad's average is above 30.
24 Number of catches Alastair Cook has taken off Anderson's bowling, the most by an English fielder (other than a wicket-keeper) off a single bowler. The overall record is held by Mahela Jayawardene, off Muttiah Muralitharan (77 catches).
10 MS Dhoni and R Ashwin posted 66 runs for the seventh wicket after India were 63 for 6, tipping the number of 50-plus partnerships for India's seventh wicket after being six down for less than 100 runs in the first innings into double-figures.
2 Number of times India have been bowled out for 152 in the first innings of a Test after choosing to bat against England in England. The previous instance was at Lord's in 1967.
95 Ashwin's strike rate during his innings of 40 off 42 balls (95.23). This is the sixth-highest for a 40-plus innings by an Indian no.8 batsman outside Asia. All six instances have been in England, with Kapil Dev featuring thrice above Ashwin on that list.
