6 - Tests won by India in Australia. This win is only their third in the country in the last 35 years. Their previous two came in Perth (January 2008) and Adelaide (December 2003). The first three wins had come on successive tours of 1977-78 (two) and 1980-81. India are the only team win in Adelaide twice since 2000.

1 - This is the first time India have won the first Test of an Australia tour. On 11 previous occasions, they either escaped with a draw (2) or stumbled to a loss (9). India winning opening Tests on overseas tours is a rarity. They've done it once in England (Lord's 1986), once in South Africa (Jo'burg 2006), thrice in New Zealand and twice in West Indies (both this decade).

0 - No Australian side has successfully chased 200-plus targets at Adelaide in the last 100 years. They have lost seven and drawn eight Tests in 15 tries. In fact, no team has managed to chase down 200-plus targets against India in last 10 years. The last time this was achieved was when South Africa did so in Cape Town in 2006-07. Since then, India have won 23 and drawn 11 of 34 such Tests.

2 - Twice in the last three seasons, Australia have begun their home summer with a defeat. That's India in 2018-19 and South Africa in 2016-17. Prior to these three seasons, the last time they started a home summer with a loss was 30 years ago, to West Indies.

31 - India's margin of victory, their third-narrowest in terms of runs. Adelaide follows the 13-run win over Australia in Mumbai in 2004-05 and 28-run win over England at Eden Gardens in 1972-73. For Australia, this is their second-closest defeat at home since 2000.

3 - Wins for India after losing their first four wickets for less than 50 runs while batting first. This was the first time they have done it away from home. The other two wins were against West Indies in Chennai in 1974-75 and Australia in Mumbai in 2004-05.

1 - Virat Kohli became the first Indian - and Asian - captain to win at least one Test in South Africa, England and Australia. He and his team achieved all these victories in 2018 - at Wanderers, Trent Bridge and Adelaide Oval. The only other year when India had won three Tests in a year outside subcontinent was in 1968, when they won all three Tests in New Zealand.

11 - Catches taken by Rishabh Pant in the Test - the joint-most by a wicketkeeper. He equalled Jack Russell and AB de Villiers and overtook Wriddhiman Saha, who took 10 at Cape Town earlier this year.

35 - Catches in this Test, a world record. It bettered the the 34 set in Cape Town earlier this year between Australia and South Africa. All 20 wickets in the second innings of both sides were caught.
