- Twenty-three wickets fell in the day, which is the highest in over 100 years. In fact, only three times have more batsmen been dismissed in a day, and all of them before 1903. The record stays at 27, in a Test at Lord's between England and Australia in 1888. The same two teams were involved in the other two matches also when more than 23 wickets fell: in Melbourne, when 25 went down on the opening day in 1902, and at The Oval in 1896, when 24 wickets went down on the second day.
