Younis Khan has been prolific in the fourth innings of a Test in 2007
During his knock of 46, Sourav Ganguly became the seventh Indian batsman to score 6000 runs in Test cricket. Ganguly has 6016 runs from 98 Tests, at an average of 41.48, the lowest among the Indian batsmen with over 6000 runs.
The match aggregate of 1470 runs is the second-highest in Tests at Eden Gardens, and the third-highest in India-Pakistan Tests.
With the wicket of Salman Butt, Anil Kumble completed 50 wickets against Pakistan in home Tests. Kumble has also taken 50 Test wickets in India against Australia and England. Dennis Lillee, Fred Trueman, Muttiah Muralitharan and Shane Warne are the other bowlers to have 50 home wickets against at least three opposition teams, with Murali having taken it against four.
Younis Khan's unbeaten 107 was his 15th Test century and his fifth against India. Younis continues his remarkable run against India, with an average of over 90 against them.
Younis scored his third consecutive hundred in the fourth innings of a Test. He averages 61.09 in the fourth innings of a Test, with three hundreds and a fifty in four final innings of Tests this year. Younis' three hundreds in the fourth innings is also the best for a Pakistan batsman in Tests. Ijaz Ahmed and Javed Miandad have scored two.
Younis' hundred was also the sixth in the match, the first time that six centuries have been scored in a Test at Eden Gardens. The previous best was five, scored in India-South Africa Test in 1996-97 and the India-West Indies match in 2002-03.
Mohammad Yousuf and Younis completed 3000 runs while batting together in Tests during their unbroken 136-run stand that ensured the match finished in a draw. The duo are five runs behind the best Pakistan pair in Tests: Inzamam-ul-Haq and Yousuf had scored 3013 runs in 57 innings. In 39 innings, Younis and Yousuf have 3008 runs at an average of 81.29. They fare better against India, averaging 185.71, with six century stands in nine innings.
