A new low for Gibbs

Herschelle Gibbs plumbed the depths while Sreesanth threatened to soar to new heights. Stats highlights from the third day's play at Johannesburg.

0 & 0 - Herschelle Gibbs's score in the innings at Johannesburg. It's the first time he has bagged a pair in 80 Tests.

39 - Jacques Kallis's aggregate in this match. It's his lowest in a Test against India, against whom his average has now dropped from 82.71 to 68.67.

8 for 87 - Sreesanth's match figures so far. The only Indian bowler to take more than eight wickets in a Test in South Africa is Venkatesh Prasad, who took 10 for 153 at Durban in 1996.

54* - Ashwell Prince's score at the end of the third day. All his three previous half-centuries in Tests have been in matches South Africa have lost. Of his four hundreds, though, South Africa have won one, drawn two and lost one.

5 - The total of the first-wicket stand in two innings for South Africa. India were marginally better with the openers adding 14 and 20 in the two innings.

37 - Zaheer Khan's contribution with the bat, which is his fourth Test score of more than 35, all of which have come overseas. Zaheer averages 15.11 when batting abroad; at home his average drops to 9.28.

48.50 - VVS Laxman's Test average in South Africa. His 73 at Johannesburg was his second half-century there in eight innings.
