India vs West Indies – 1st Test, Day 2: Stats Highlights


Shane Shillingford completed his 50 Test wickets when he had Murali Vijay stumped by Denesh Ramdin. He became 41st West Indian to reach this landmark.
By achieving this milestone in just his 11th Test, Shillingford became the third-quickest West Indies spinner to accomplish this feat, after Alf Valentine (8 Tests) and Sonny Ramadhin (who also reached this milestone in 11 Tests).  (Also Read: India vs West Indies – 1st Test, Day 1: Stats Highlights)
Rohit Sharma (127*) became the 14th Indian to score a century on Test debut. He also became the first to do so against West Indies.
Rohit’s innings tally is now the highest by an Indian debutant at No.6. Suresh Raina held the previous record with his 120 against Sri Lanka at Colombo (SSC) in 2010.
Rohit’s innings is the sixth-highest by a debutant at No.6, after Doug Walters (155 vs England,Brisbane, 1965-66), Michael Clarke (151 vs India, Bangalore, 2004-05), Mark Waugh (138 vs England, Adelaide, 1990-91), Bryan Valentine (136 vs India, Mumbai Gym, 1933-34) and Kane Williamson (131 vs India, Ahmedabad, 2010-11).
Incidentally, 2013 is the first calendar year in which two Indians scored a century on Test debut. Shikhar Dhawan made 187 against Australia at Mohali in March this year.
R Ashwin (92*) made his second-highest score in Test cricket. Interestingly, Ashwin’s highest Test score (103) had also come against West Indies – at Mumbai (Wankhede) in 2011-12.
Ashwin became the 8th Indian to remain unbeaten in the 90s at close of a day’s play against West Indies. All the other seven players managed to reach the three-figure mark the following day!
The 7th wicket unbroken partnership of 198 runs between Rohit and Ashwin is India’s fifth-best for this wicket against any opponent. Incidentally, three of them have come against West Indies.
