On 71 the pair surpassed England’s previous record partnership for tenth wicket, which was between Paul Allott and Bob Willis at Lord’s in 1982.

On 80 the pair set a new tenth wicket record for England at Trent Bridge, eclipsing the previous record held by M Watkinson and RK Illingworth against West Indies in 1995.

On 100 it provided the first instance of both sides making a century partnership for tenth wicket in the same Test. 

On 105 it became the highest tenth wicket partnership for any side against India, bettering the record held by Pakistan’s Zulfiqar Ahmed and Amir Elahi at Chennai in 1952-53.

On 129 the partnership became England’s highest for tenth wicket in England, beating the previous partnership between Ken Higgs and John Snow against West Indies at The Oval in 1966.

• On 131 the pair established a new record for England for tenth wicket against all countries, surpassing 130-run partnership between Reg Foster and Wilfred Rhodes against Australia at Sydney in 1903-04

On 164 it became the highest partnership for tenth wicket in Test annals, obliterating the previous record between Australia’s Phil Hughes and Ashton Agar also at Trent Bridge in 2013.

Joe Root (154*) scored his fourth hundred in 18th Test – his first against India. Out of four times he has scored a hundred, Root has converted it in to a 150 on three occasions.

James Anderson (81) made his highest score in any form of cricket, surpassing 49* for Burnley in Lancashire league. He carried the bat on that occasion!

Anderson’s 81 is the third highest score by a number 11 in Test cricket, after Australia’s Ashton Agar’s 98 (vs England also at Trent Bridge last year) and West Indies’ Tino Best’s 95 (vs England at Edgbaston in 2012).

Anderson’s 81 is now the fourth highest score by an English batsman soon after begging a pair. He had suffered this fate against Sri Lanka at Headingley last month.

Incidentally Anderson has scored more runs in a full Test series only once than what he got in this innings!

It was in his 131st innings that Anderson scored his maiden Test fifty. He now holds the record of scoring a fifty after playing most number of innings.Australia’s Glenn McGrath scored his maiden fifty in his 115th innings (West Indian Courtney Walsh played 185 innings without ever scoring a fifty).

Bhuvneshwar Kumar (5/82) became seventh Indian to take 5 wickets in an innings on his first appearance in England, joining the ranks with Mohammed Nissar, Lala Amarnath, Ghulam Ahmed, Kapil Dev, Chetan Sharma and Praveen Kumar.

Incidentally Bhuvneshwar’s figures are now the second best by an Indian on first appearance in England after Chetan Sharma’s 5 for 64 at Lord’s in 1986.

Bhuvneshwar’s 5 for 82 followed his 58 in Indian innings. The last Indian pacer to score a fifty and claim a five-wicket haul in a Test outside the subcontinent was Irfan Pathan (vs Zimbabwe at Bulawayo in 2005).

Murali Vijay followed his first innings 146 with 52 in the second innings. He became the first Indian opener to score a hundred and a fifty in the same Test outside the subcontinent since Virender Sehwag who made 63 and 151 against Australia at Adelaide in 2007-08.
