The unfortunate Shan Masood sits only joint-tenth on this list for his 33-ball scoreless double in Christchurch two weeks ago: nine others are known to have faced more deliveries while bagging a pair in a Test.
India's 20 players in this Border-Gavaskar series was a record for an away team in any series - West Indies used 18 in South Africa in 1998-99, as did England in the 2013-14 Ashes. Both of those were five-Test series; the previous record for a four-Test rubber was 17, which had happened three times.
Australia's recent new cap Cameron Green might be relieved to discover he's got a fair way to go before he threatens this Test record: the Indian allrounder Kripal Singh did not take a wicket until the 11th of his 14 Tests, against England in Delhi in 1961-62, by which time he had sent down 651 fruitless deliveries and conceded 235 runs. He did score a century on his Test debut, though - against New Zealand in Hyderabad in 1955-56 - which might have made up for any lack of success with the ball.
Hanuma Vihari's match-saving innings at the SCG unsurprisingly comes in quite high on any such list. The difficulty is deciding which measurements to use, also remembering that we do not have complete details for many early innings.
Nathan Lyon was the 68th player to reach a century of Test caps; the first was England's Colin Cowdrey in 1968. Lyon was the 13th Australian to reach 100, but England have one more, including Andrew Strauss and Graham Thorpe who both finished their careers with exactly 100. India have ten centurions, West Indies nine, South Africa eight, Pakistan and Sri Lanka five, and New Zealand four. The next addition to the list should be another Englishman, Joe Root: his 228 against Sri Lanka in Galle last weekend came in his 98th Test appearance.
