Jos Buttler (70) became the fourth player to score fifties in first two Test innings as a wicketkeeper after India’s Dilawar Hussain, West Indies’ Desmond Lewis and Sri Lanka’s Dinesh Chandimal. (Also Read: Report: England vs India, 4th Investec Test - Day 3)

Pankaj Singh finally took his first Test wicket off his 416th delivery when he dismissed Joe Root. He is, however, very far off the record of most balls bowled by a bowler before taking his first Test wicket. Another Indian AG Milkha Singh holds this record, as his maiden Test wicket came off his 652nd ball!

Stuart Broad had to retire hurt when Varun Aaron’s bouncer hit him on the face. The last batsman to get retired hurt against India after being hit was Australia’s Steve Waugh (Melbourne in December 2003). Waugh got hit on the left elbow by Ajit Agarkar.

Indian openers once again failed to put on a fifty stand. It has now been 31 consecutive innings outside India that the opening pair has not managed a fifty-stand since 63 put on by Abhinav Mukund and Gautam Gambhir at Lord’s in 2011.

James Anderson has now dismissed Virat Kohli four times in 30 balls in the series giving away only 7 runs!

Moeen Ali has now taken 19 wickets in the series – second most by an England spinner against India in England, behind only Ray Illingworth’s 20 in 1967.

Pankaj Singh bagged a pair in the Test. He became 37th Indian to have this misfortune (on 51st occasion). The last player to suffer this fate was Suresh Raina also against England at The Oval in 2011.

Ravi Ashwin’s unbeaten 46 took his average to above 40. This makes him the only player to average above 40 with the bat and below 30 with the ball in Tests among all players who have taken at least 100 wickets.

India’s two innings lasted for only 89.4 overs. This is the fourth lowest amount of overs India have batted in a Test in which they were dismissed in both innings. The details:

India lost a Test within three days for the 14th time. The break-up: six times against England, four times against Australia, thrice against South Africa and once against New Zealand. Last time this had happened was against Australia at Perth in January 2012. The last time England had beaten India within three days was in 1967 at Birmingham.

The defeat was MS Dhoni’s 13th outside India. Only three captains have lost more Tests abroad than Dhoni – Stephen Fleming and Brian Lara (16 each) and Graeme Smith (15). Arjuna Ranatunga also had a tally of 13 defeats in away Tests.

For the second time in successive series England managed to take lead after trailing behind. This had happened in 2012-13 series in India also!
