Statistical highlights: India vs Australia: 3rd Test, Day 5, Mohali

After registering a six-wicket win in the Mohali Test, Team India reclaimed the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, thanks to an unassailable 3-0 series lead. This victory also marked skipper MS Dhoni’s seventh win against the men from Down Under in as many home Tests – thereby maintaining his 100 percent record against them. Dhoni also broke Sourav Ganguly’s record of most Test wins by an Indian captain against a particular opponent.

Here are these and other stats highlights from Day 5 of the fourth Test of the series:

# India have achieved another hat-trick by winning all three Tests against Australia at Mohali - by 320 runs in October 2008; by one wicket in October 2010 and by six wickets in March 2013.
