Captain Kohli's glorious year

Most 200-plus scores in Tests in a calendar year ESPNcricinfo Ltd

5 Batsmen who have scored three or more double-hundreds in Tests in a calendar year. Virat Kohli joins Michael Clarke, Brendon McCullum, Ricky Ponting and Don Bradman in this elite list. Kohli is the third captain to score three doubles in a year, after Clarke (2012) and McCullum (2014).

50.53 Kohli's Test average after his 235, the first time his Test average has gone past 50. He also averages 52.93 in ODIs, and 57.13 in Twenty20 internationals, making him the first batsman to simultaneously average more than 50 in all three formats in international cricket.

640 Kohli's aggregate in the series, the highest for any Indian batsman in a Test series against England. He went past Rahul Dravid's aggregate of 602 in the four-Test series in England in 2002. This is only the seventh instance of an Indian batsman scoring 600-plus runs in a series; Kohli joins Sunil Gavaskar and Dravid among Indian batsmen who have done this twice.

241 The partnership between Kohli and Jayant Yadav, India's highest for the eighth wicket. The previous best was 161, by Mohammad Azharuddin and Anil Kumble against South Africa 20 years ago. It is the second double-century stand for the eighth wicket in Tests against England: the previous one came almost 109 years ago, when Roger Hartigan and Clem Hill added 243 in Adelaide in January 1908. This is only the eighth 200-plus stand for the eighth wicket in Test history.

0 Indian No. 9 batsmen who had scored Test hundreds before Jayant Yadav's 104 today. India have now become the seventh team to have a centurion at No. 9 or lower. This is only the 20th hundred by a batsman at No. 9 or lower in Test history.

65.50 Kohli's Test average as captain, second only to Bradman's 101.51 among captains with 2000-plus Test runs.

165 Kohli's average century, in terms of runs per innings, as captain; when not captain, his average century score was 117.

1 Where Kohli's innings ranks, in terms of most runs in an innings by an India captain in Tests, and by any India batsman against England. Kohli's 235 is the second-highest score by any batsman in Tests at the Wankhede Stadium: the best is Clive Lloyd's 242 not out in 1975.

4 Instances of India scoring 600-plus against England; the previous three were all in England, at The Oval in 1990 and 2007, and at Headingley in 2002.

118.3 Overs bowled by England's spinners, the fifth-most for England in a Test innings in India. The last time they bowled more was also at the Wankhede Stadium, in 1993, when John Emburey, Phil Tufnell and Graeme Hick wheeled down 127.3 overs. That was also the Test in which Vinod Kambli scored 224, which was the previous highest for India against England.

192 Runs conceded by Adil Rashid, the third highest by an England bowler in a Test innings, and the highest overseas. The two higher ones were both at The Oval, by Ian Botham against Pakistan in 1987, and by Ian Peebles against Australia in 1930.

4 Batsmen who have scored a century and a duck on Test debut. The previous such instance before Keaton Jennings in this Test was by Mohammad Wasim, 20 years ago against New Zealand.

10 Fifty-plus scores for Joe Root in ten Tests against India; in each of these Tests he has passed 50 once.

362 Runs scored today, the second highest ever on the fourth day of a Test match in India. The only instance when more runs were scored was against Pakistan in Kolkata in 2005, when the fourth day fetched 369 runs, 274 by India and 95 by Pakistan.
