India are playing their 13th Boxing Day Test. They have won only one, lost nine and drawn two. Interestingly, India’s only Boxing Day Test win came against South Africa at Durban in 2010.

This is the 50th Test match for Graeme Smith as captain on home soil. He became only the second player after Allan Border (51) to do so.

Steve Davis was officiating for the 50th time in a Test. He becomes 11th umpire to complete half-century of Tests.

R Ashwin missed a Test for the second time in his career. He had to sit out of the Perth Test in 2011-12 after going wicketless in the Sydney Test.

Murali Vijay (91*) made his highest score in an away Test, surpassing his 58 against Sri Lanka at Colombo SSC in 2010.

The 140-run unbroken partnership between Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara is India’s highest for any wicket at Durban. The pair obliterated the 101-run stand between Pravin Amre and Kiran More for the eighth wicket in 1992-93.

The above partnership is India’s second-best for the second wicket on South African soil, after the 171-run partnership between Deep Dasgupta and Rahul Dravid at Port Elizabeth in 2001-02.

Since dismissing Shikhar Dhawan in the first innings of Johannesburg Test, Dale Steyn has bowled 67 overs and conceded 204 runs without taking another wicket!
