Stats Highlights: England vs India, 3rd Investec Test - Day 5

Incidentally Moeen is the first English spinner to take five wickets in fourth innings of a Test against India in England.

Moeen’s match figures of 8 for 129 are the third best by an England spinner against India at home after Graeme Swann’s 9 for 208 at The Oval in 2011 and Norman Gifford’s 8 for 127 at Lord’s in 1971. 

Moeen’s 15 wickets in the series are the most by an England spinner in a home series since 1967 when Ray Illingworth took 20 wickets in three matches.

James Anderson -by dismissing Rohit Sharma- completed his 50 wickets against India at home. He became fourth bowler to complete half-century of wickets against India at home after Imran Khan (67), Muttiah Muralitharan (65) and Fred Trueman (53).

James Anderson dismissed MS Dhoni for the second time in the Test. He has now dismissed Dhoni six times in Test cricket – more than any other bowler.

Dhoni’s dismissal was the 100th time Anderson dismissed a batsman caught behind. He became fourth bowler in Test cricket to do so after Glenn McGrath (152), Courtney Walsh (111) and Allan Donald (100).

Jos Buttler’s three catches in second innings took his match tally to six. Having scored 85 in only innings he batted in, Buttler became only the third wicketkeeper to score 80+ runs and effect 5 dismissals in debut Test. Other to do so are Sri Lanka’s Chamara Dunusinghe (91 runs and 7 dismissals vs New Zealand at Napier in 1994-95) and Australia’s Adam Gilchrist (81 runs and 6 dismissals vs Pakistan at Brisbane in 1999-00).

Ajinkya Rahane (54 and 52) top scored for India in both innings. He became eighth Indian to accomplish this feat against England in England joining Vinoo Mankad, Pankaj Roy, Tiger Pataudi, Sunil Gavaskar,Dilip Vengsarkar, Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni.

Since 2001 India have suffered a defeat in the very next Test after winning one on 8 occasions in an away series.

The win was England’s first in 11 Tests since Chester-le-Street Test against Australia in 2013.

MS Dhoni has now lost 11 Tests outside the subcontinent – most by an Indian captain. He was earlier at level with Tiger Pataudi and Mohammad Azharuddin with 10 defeats.
