12 - Number of sixes in Yashasvi Jaiswal's unbeaten 214 against England in Rajkot, equalling Wasim Akram's record for the most sixes in a Test innings.
1 - Jaiswal is the first Indian batter - and seventh overall - to convert his first three Test hundreds into 150-plus scores (171, 209 and 214*).
22 years 49 days - Jaiswal's age at the start of the Rajkot Test, making him the third youngest player to score two double-tons in Test cricket. Vinod Kambli did it when he was 21 years and 54 days old, while Don Bradman was 21 years and 318 days old.
3 - Indian batters with double-centuries in consecutive Tests, including Jaiswal against England. Kambli scored double-hundreds in successive Tests against England and Zimbabwe in 1993, while Virat Kohli did it against Sri Lanka in 2017.
28 - Number of sixes India hit against England in Rajkot, the most by any team in a Test match. They broke their record of 27 sixes against South Africa in the 2019 Vizag Test. Eighteen of the 28 came in the second innings, the second most in a Test innings after New Zealand's 22 against Pakistan in the 2014 Sharjah Test.
48 - Sixes for India so far in this series against England, the most for any team in a series, surpassing their 47 sixes against South Africa in 2019. Twenty-two of those 48 came off Jaiswal's bat, the most by a batter in a Test series, going past Rohit Sharma's 19 against South Africa in 2019.
4 - India batters with 50-plus scores in both innings on debut in men's Tests, including Sarfaraz Khan in Rajkot. Dilawar Hussain against England in 1934, Sunil Gavaskar against West Indies in 1971, and Shreyas Iyer against New Zealand in 2021 had two 50-plus scores on debut. Sarfaraz's strike rate (94.2) is by far the highest among the 43 batters with two fifty-plus scores on debut in men's Tests (where balls-faced data is available).
2009 - The previous instance of a team scoring 400-plus totals in both innings of a Test match - India against Sri Lanka in Ahmedabad. Overall, this was only the eleventh time a team had scored 400-plus totals in both innings of a Test.
6.53 - Run rate during the partnership between Jaiswal and Sarfaraz, the seventh highest for any stand of 150-plus balls in men's Tests (where data is available). It is the highest and the longest partnership scored at more than run-a-ball for India in men's Tests.
557 - The target set by India in Rajkot is the second-highest for them in Test cricket, behind the 617 against New Zealand in the 2009 Wellington Test.
434 - India's winning margin in Rajkot is their biggest by runs in Test cricket. Their previous biggest such win was by 372 runs against New Zealand at the Wankhede in 2021. This is also the eighth-biggest win by runs in Test cricket and the second-biggest for anyone against England, behind the 562-run win for Australia in 1934 at The Oval.
9 - Player-of-the-Match awards for Ravindra Jadeja in home Tests - the most for an Indian, equalling Anil Kumble. Since his debut in December 2012, no other player has won as many Player-of-the-Match awards in home Tests as Jadeja. Jadeja has 10 Player-of-the-Match awards in Test cricket overall - the joint-third most for India in the format, behind only Sachin Tendulkar (14) and Rahul Dravid (11).
2 - Instances of a century and a five-wicket haul in the same Test by Jadeja - he'd done it against Sri Lanka in Mohali in 2022 before this game. Only Ian Botham (5) and R Ashwin (3) have recorded this double more often than Jadeja in Test cricket, while Gary Sobers, Mushtaq Mohammad, Jacques Kallis and Shakib Al Hasan have also done it twice.
11 - Test hundreds for Rohit Sharma - all of them have come in a winning cause. No other player has ten or more hundreds in this format with all coming in a victory. Travis Head (7), Warwick Armstrong (6), Darren Lehmann (5) and Ollie Pope (5) are the other players with five or more Test hundreds all of which have come in wins.
122 - England's total in Rajkot is their lowest in Tests under Ben Stokes and Brendon McCullum. Their previous lowest (smaller chases aside) was 141 all out in their first innings of the Lord's Test against New Zealand in 2022, which was the first of the 21 Tests they have played under the Stokes-McCullum duo.
33 - Test wins for India against England - the most for them against any team, surpassing their 32 wins against Australia. Twenty-four of the 33 wins against England have come at home, also the most home Test wins for India against any team, going past the 23 versus Australia.
