7 Centuries for Joe Root in the last 15 innings when he has scored a fifty. Excluding the one against West Indies at Old Trafford in 2018, when he remained unbeaten on 68, his conversion rate to hundreds is 50%. Out of the 54 times he had made a fifty before that, Root had hit 13 centuries, a conversion rate of 25% (excluding two unbeaten fifties). Among batsmen who have hit at least 10 fifty-plus scores since September 2018, no batsman has had a better conversion rate than Root. Kane Williamson (six hundreds out of 12) and Henry Nicholls (five hundreds out of 10) are the other batsmen to convert 50% their fifties to centuries in that period.
7 Successive Tests in India in which Root has got at least one fifty-plus score. Javed Miandad is the only batsman who had a better run (8). Alvin Kallicharan and VVS Laxman are the other batsmen with seven fifties in seven Tests in India.
8 Batsmen including Root who have hit a century in three consecutive Test matches in Asia. Hashim Amla was the last batsman to do so; he had scores of 253* in the Nagpur Test in 2010, then 114 and 123* in Kolkata in the next Test, and 80 and 118* against Pakistan in Dubai in the first Test of his next tour to Asia. Ken Barrington is the only other England batsman among the eight.
9 Batsmen who have hit a century in their 100th Test. Root is the third England batsman to do so after Colin Cowdrey and Alec Stewart. Ricky Ponting is the only one to hit two hundreds in his 100th Test.
2012 The last time a visiting team in India put on a 200-run partnership. Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott had added 208 runs for the fourth wicket in the third innings of the Nagpur Test. The last 200-plus stand in the first innings of a Test in India by an away team was in 2010, when Amla and Alviro Petersen added 209 runs for the third wicket in Kolkata. Dom Sibley and Root recorded only the 14th instance of a visiting team putting on a 200-run partnership in the first innings of a Test in India.
17 Tests played by Jasprit Bumrah before his first one at home. Excluding Pakistan players who debuted in the mid-2000s and had to play their 'home' Tests at neutral venues in the UAE, this is the longest any player has gone before playing his first Test at home. West Indies' Daren Ganga also played 17 Test matches before playing his first home Test match.
3.87 The combined economy rate of Shahbaz Nadeem and Washington Sundar - India's fourth and fifth bowling options - in this innings so far. Between them the two bowlers bowled 32 overs and conceded 20 out of the 30 boundaries hit in the day. The other bowlers - Bumrah, Ishant Sharma and R Ashwin - returned a combined economy rate of 2.34 from 57.3 overs.
