Stats - Ashwin's unique double-century, and Foakes' strong record in Asia

All the stats highlights from a dominant performance by India on the second day in Chennai

268 - Test wickets for R Ashwin in India; only Anil Kumble, with 350, has more wickets in India. During the course of his 5 for 43 today, Ashwin went past Harbhajan Singh's home tally of 265. Ashwin averages 22.54 in home Tests, compared to Kumble's 24.88 and Harbhajan's 28.76. This was Ashwin's 23rd five-for at home, which is only two short of Kumble's record.
200 - Left-hand batsmen that Ashwin has dismissed in Tests. He is the first bowler to reach that mark. Of the 391 Test wickets for Ashwin, 200 are of left-hand batsmen, which is an impressive percentage of 51.2. Next on the list of most left-handers dismissed is Muttiah Muralitharan, but only 23.9% of his victims (191 out of 800) were left-hand batsmen. Ashwin averages 19.55 against left-handers, and 31.24 against right-handers.
134 - England's total, which is their second-lowest all-out score in India; the lowest is 102, in Mumbai in 1981. In terms of overs faced, the 59.5 they faced here is their fifth-lowest in India. One of the previous four was in their second innings in the first Test of the series, when they were looking out for quick runs and were bowled out for 178 in 46.3 overs.
74.6 - The control percentage for England's batsmen in their first innings; India's control percentage in their first innings was 82.4%. England's batsmen played a false shot every 3.9 deliveries, compared to one every 5.7 balls for India's batsmen. In the 18 overs of India's second innings, their control percentage dropped to 78.5, which is a false shot every 4.7 balls. A batsman is in control of a delivery when the ball goes where the batsman intended it to. On the other hand, a false shot is marked when a batsman edges, mistimes, or is beaten by a delivery.
79.75 - Ben Foakes' batting average in Asia. In seven innings in the continent, he has scored a century and a half-century, and has only twice been dismissed below 20.
0 - Extras conceded by England in India's first innings. That is the highest total in a Test innings in which no extras have been conceded. The previous highest was 328, though on that instance India's bowlers bowled 187.5 overs, against Pakistan in 1955, compared to the 95.5 overs bowled by England in the Indian innings.
4 - Ducks in India's first innings, which is only the ninth instance of four or more ducks in an Indian innings at home. The previous such instance was in 2008, against South Africa in Ahmedabad.
