2 - Previous instances when India were left with one wicket away from a Test win - both against West Indies - in Kolkata in 1978-79 and Antigua in 2006. The Kanpur Test is also the second instance of New Zealand finishing with a draw after losing nine wickets in the fourth innings. The other occasion was against Australia in Hobart in 1997, where they made 223 for 9 while chasing 288.

10 - Consecutive Tests without a defeat for New Zealand, a streak that includes eight victories, their longest without a loss in this format. New Zealand had three unbeaten sprees of nine matches, the first of which came between 1964 and 1965, when they played out nine consecutive draws. They also had a nine-match unbeaten streak between 1989 and 1990, and in between 2002 and 2003.

14 - Consecutive Tests in India being won (or lost) before the Kanpur Test, the longest sequence of such Tests in the country. The previous longest sequence was 13 Tests between 1988 and 1994, when India had a 12-1 win-loss record.

1.91 - New Zealand's run rate in the Kanpur Test, the second-lowest by any team in the last 20 years while batting out 200 or more overs. The lowest is 1.79 by South Africa against Sri Lanka in 2014, when South Africa held on to a draw with two wickets in hand.

7 - Players, including Shreyas Iyer, to win the Player-of-the-Match award on men's Test debut for India. The last player was Prithvi Shaw against West Indies in Rajkot in 2018.

3 - New Zealand batters, including Tom Latham, with 50-plus scores in both innings of a Test in India. Nathan Astle and Craig McMillan recorded this feat during the Ahmedabad Test in 2003. Latham faced 428 balls and lasted 619 minutes at the crease - both being record numbers for New Zealand in a Test in India.

419 - Test wickets for R Ashwin. He is the third-highest wicket-taker for India in this format. Ashwin went past Harbhajan Singh's tally of 417 when he dismissed Latham on the fifth day.

58 - Test wickets for Ashwin against New Zealand, the most for India, surpassing Bishen Bedi's 57. Ashwin is also the second-highest wicket-taker in the Tests between India and New Zealand, behind Sir Richard Hadlee (65).

6 - Batters dismissed lbw in New Zealand's second innings, the joint-most such dismissals taken by India's bowlers in a Test innings. The last two instances were against West Indies in Mohali in 1994 and against New Zealand in Kanpur in 2016.
