5-3 Pakistan's win-loss Test record at The Oval. It is the only venue in England where Pakistan have won more Tests than they have lost. In their last seven Tests here they have won four and drawn two; the only defeat was the forfeiture in 2006. The five wins by Pakistan here is also the most Tests they have won at any away venue.
4 Defeats for England, from the last seven Tests they have played at The Oval, since 2010. They have lost twice to Pakistan, and once each to South Africa and Australia. Their win-loss ratio here is the poorest among all home venues during this period.
6 Number of consecutive home series of four or more Tests that England had won, before this 2-2 draw against Pakistan. They won three Ashes series (2009, 2013 and 2015), two series against India (2011 and 2014) and one against Pakistan (2010) since the 1-2 defeat to South Africa in 2008. Between 2004 and 2015, England won ten out of 11 home series of four or more Tests.
1998 The last time a spinner took a five-wicket haul conceding fewer than 100 runs at The Oval, before Yasir Shah's 5 for 71 in England's second innings: Muttiah Muralitharan took 9 for 65 in England's second innings in 1998. Yasir's haul was also the first five-for by an overseas spinner at The Oval in more than a decade: the last one was by Shane Warne, who took 6 for 122 and 6 for 124 in the two innings of the 2005 Ashes Test. The last five-for by any spinner was Graeme Swann's 6 for 106 against India in 2011. Six of the last eight five-fors by spinners at The Oval have been by wristspinners, including two by Muralitharan in 1998.
992 Runs scored by Jonny Bairstow in Tests in 2016, the second highest by a wicketkeeper in a calendar year. The only higher aggregate was by Andy Flower in 2000, when he scored 1045 runs from nine Tests at 80.38.
140 Runs scored by Moeen Ali, the second highest by any No. 7 batsman in a Test against Pakistan. The highest was also by Moeen a week ago, when he scored 149 runs (63 and 86 not out) in the previous Test at Edgbaston.
1 Pakistan's rank in the ICC Test ratings, if Australia don't win the ongoing Test against Sri Lanka. However, India can go past them if they beat West Indies in the fourth Test and win the series 3-0.
