New Zealand's 62 all out: The lowest total in a Test match in India

A set of ignominious records that the Black Caps now own after their dismal display in Mumbai

62 New Zealand's total in the first innings in Mumbai, the lowest in Tests played in India. The previous was 75 by the home team against West Indies in Delhi in 1975.
62 New Zealand's 62 is also the lowest total by any team against India in Test cricket, South Africa's 79 in 2015 in Nagpur being the previous lowest. Two of the three lowest Test totals against India came in 2021 with England all out for 81 in February this year.
1 Instance of New Zealand registering a total lower than 62 since 1959, when they were bowled out for 45 against South Africa in 2013 in Cape Town. Until 1958, New Zealand had as many as four all-out totals in Tests which were lower than 62.
1 All-out total lower than New Zealand's 62 in the subcontinent. Pakistan held West Indies to just 53 runs in 1986 in Faisalabad. New Zealand's total in Mumbai is also the joint fourth-lowest total in Tests in Asia with Pakistan recording totals of 59 and 53 respectively against Australia in the Sharjah Test in 2002.
28.1 Overs faced by New Zealand during their first innings. Only South Africa (19.2) and England (22.3) have dismissed them in fewer overs. They faced 27 overs while registering the lowest total ever - 26 all out against England in 1955. The 28.1 overs at Wankhede are third-fewest India needed to bowl out an opponent at home in Test cricket.
17 The lowest highest individual score in an all-out innings against India in Tests. It belongs to Kyle Jamieson now. Only once had India bowled an opposition out with no batter reaching 20 runs - in Melbourne 1981 when Doug Walters was Australia's top-scorer in the second innings with 18*.
325 India's first-innings total is the second-lowest for any team to end up with a lead of 250-plus runs. Australia, in Sharjah in 2002, earned a lead of 251 runs after bundling Pakistan out for 59 while bowling first.
332 India's lead at the end of the second day, the highest they have taken at this stage in a Test match. The only other instance of India leading by 300-plus runs in the second innings by stumps on day two was against South Africa in 2006 (311).
