Broad v de Villiers: 9 dismissals, average 18.11

Stuart Broad's Test record before and since July 2011 ESPNcricinfo Ltd

3 Consecutive Test series in South Africa that England have either won or drawn - they won 2-1 in 2004, and drew 1-1 in 2009. The last time they lost a Test series in South Africa was in 1999, by a 2-1 margin.

2012 The last time England won an away Test series: 2-1 against India in 2012-13. In four away series since then, they drew two (in New Zealand and the West Indies) and lost two (in Australia and the UAE).

6-17 Stuart Broad's figures in South Africa's second innings, his fourth best in Test cricket. This is his 15th five-for in Tests, but his first in South Africa, and his second against them.

1 Bowler who has taken a five-for in Tests conceding 25 or fewer runs more often than Broad. Broad has achieved this three times - he also took 8 for 15 against Australia last year, and 6 for 25 against India in 2015 - but the only bowler to outdo him is Muttiah Muralitharan, with four such instances (though all those were against Zimbabwe or Bangladesh). Six other bowlers have also achieved it three times, including Curtly Ambrose, Glenn McGrath and Dale Steyn.

3 Bowlers conceding fewer than 17 runs while taking five or more wickets against South Africa in South Africa. Only once has a bowler conceded fewer runs when taking a five-for at the Wanderers: Steyn took 6 for 8 against Pakistan in 2012-13.

9 Number of Man of the Match awards for Broad in Tests since 2009 - the most by any player. Rangana Herath and Mitchell Johnson are next with eight such awards. For England, James Anderson and Graeme Swann have six awards each.

9 Instances of Broad dismissing AB de Villiers in Tests, which is the highest for any bowler. Peter Siddle is next, dismissing de Villiers six times in 12 Tests. The only batsman Broad has dismissed more often in Tests is Michael Clarke (11 times). Broad averages 18.11 runs per dismissal against de Villiers, and 23.81 against Clarke.

83 South Africa's total in their second innings, which is their lowest at home since their readmission to international cricket in 1992. This is their second lowest total in any country during this period, next only to the 79 against India in Nagpur in November 2015. It is only the fourth time they have been dismissed for less than 100 since 1992.

12 Runs within which South Africa lost five wickets, as they slipped from 23 without loss to 35 for 5. Only once since their readmission have the partnerships for their second to fifth wickets yielded fewer runs: in that Nagpur Test, they collapsed from 4 without loss to 12 for 5.

2 England bowlers with more Test wickets than Broad - James Anderson (429) and Ian Botham (383). Broad, who has 330 Test wickets, went past Bob Willis' 325 in this Test.

4 Number of South African bowlers to take a five-wicket haul in Tests at a younger age than Kagiso Rabada's 20 years, 234 days. Rabada is the youngest South African fast bowler to take a five-for since Peter Pollock, in December 1961.

0 Number of times Dean Elgar has been dismissed before Stiaan van Zyl in the 10 innings they had opened together in Tests, before the second innings in Johannesburg. In their 11th opening stand, van Zyl outlasted Elgar, though he too fell four overs later as South Africa collapsed in a heap after a 23-run opening stand.
