Stats highlights of the second day's play between India and South Africa at Johannesburg
December 16, 2006
84 - South Africa's lowest total since readmission into Test cricket in 1991. It also happens to be the third-lowest total by any team against India in Tests, the lowest being 82 by Sri Lanka in 1990, followed by 83 by Australia in Melbourne in 1980-81. It is also the second-lowest in Tests at the Wanderers, next only to South Africa's 72 against England in 1956-57.
20 - The number of wickets which fell through the day. Of these, the fast bowlers accounted for 18 while Anil Kumble chipped in with two.
401 - Test wickets taken by Shaun Pollock. He is the first South African to get to the 400-wicket club in Tests.
5-40 - Sreesanth's figures, which is the second best by an Indian fast bowler in South Africa, after Javagal Srinath's 6 for 76 in Port Elizabeth in 2001-02. The best by any Indian in South Africa remains Anil Kumble's 6 for 53 at the same venue in 1992-93, which was incidentally his first five-wicket haul in Tests.
44 - India's last-wicket partnership between Sourav Ganguly and VRV Singh, which is their second-highest last-wicket stand in Tests against South Africa, and their highest for that wicket in South Africa
68 - Runs scored by the Indians in the third-man and backward point region in their second innings, which includes 14 boundaries.
165 - India's first-innings lead. It's India's highest first-innings lead in South Africa.
294 for 8 - The highest fourth-innings total scored to win a Test at Johannesburg. Australia achieved it earlier this year, thanks largely to Damien Martyn's 101. The next highest fourth-innings score in victory is only 220 for 6, by South Africa against New Zealand seven months ago.
