The 111-run partnership between Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami is India’s best tenth wicket partnership against England and second best against any country. The best still remains 133 between Sachin Tendulkar and Zaheer Khan against Bangladesh at Dhaka in 2004-05. Incidentally, India’s previous highest tenth wicket partnership against England was 73 between Anil Kumble and Sreesanth at Oval in 2007. (Also Read: The Bhuvi and Shami show - England vs India, 1st Investec Test)

The above partnership is also the second highest by a subcontinent side outside the subcontinent, after 133 run-partnership between Wasim Raja and Wasim Bari against West Indies at Bridgetown in 1976-77.

The above partnership is also the third highest against England in England (highest by a subcontinent side).

Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami provided only the third instance of two Indian batsmen batting at number 9, 10 or 11 scoring fifties together. The complete list:

‘Nana’ Joshi (52*) & Ramakant Desai (85) v Pakistan, Mumbai BS, 1960-61

Kiran More (50) & Atul Wassan (53) v New Zealand, Auckland, 1989-90

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (58) & Mohammed Shami (51) v England, Trent Bridge, 2014

Bhuvneshwar Kumar faced 149 balls for his 58. He now holds the Indian record of facing most balls while batting at number 9 in England. Rusi Surti (99 balls at Headingley in 1967) held the previous record.

India ended with a score of 457. In the entire 2011 series India’s highest was 300.

Incidentally India have never lost a Test match after scoring 450 in match’s first innings. Of 54 such instances (before Trent Bridge Test) India have won 19 and drawn 35.

Alastair Cook has now aggregated just 97 runs in 7 innings in 2014 at an average of 13.85 with a highest of 28.
