Stats - India's third Test win at Lord's, Root's first Test ton in loss

August 16, 2021

3 Number of Test wins for India at Lord's. Their previous two triumphs at this venue came 28 years apart - by five wickets in 1986 under Kapil Dev and by 95 runs in 2014 under MS Dhoni.

6 Wickets for India in the post-tea session on day five, the joint-most they have picked up in the final session to win a Test since the Kolkata Test against Australia in 2001, when they took seven in the last session. India also claimed six wickets post tea on the final day against England in 2016 at Chepauk to seal an innings win.

8 for 126 Mohammed Siraj's bowling figures in this Test, the best match figures for an Indian bowler in at Lord's. The previous best was 8 for 168 by Kapil Dev in 1982.

19 Wickets by Indian pacers in this Test match. Only twice did the Indian pacers claim more - all 20 against South Africa in Johannesburg in 2018 and against England in the previous Test at Trent Bridge.

180* Joe Root's score in the first innings, the sixth-highest individual score for England in a Test defeat. This is also the fourth-highest individual score by a captain to end up in a defeat.

1 The 180* was also the first of Root's 22 Test centuries to end in a defeat. The record for the most Test centuries without one in a losing cause is held by Graeme Smith, with 27 tons. Wally Hammond, Geoff Boycott and Ian Bell share the second spot with 22 each.

89 Runs for the unbroken ninth-wicket stand between Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah during India's second innings. It is India's biggest stand for a ninth or lower wicket in Tests since Shami added 111 for the tenth wicket with Bhuvneshwar Kumar in 2014 also against England.

7 Ducks by England batters in this Test, the joint-most by them in a Test. The Lord's Test was the fifth instance where they recorded seven ducks, and the first since the Johannesburg Test against South Africa in 1999.

1 Sam Curran became the first player to bag King pair in Tests at Lord's and only the fourth England player with this ill-fate in Test cricket (where balls faced data is available). William Attewell against Australia in Sydney in 1892, Ernest Hayes against South Africa in Cape Town in 1906 and James Anderson against India in Visakhapatnam in 2016 are the other three.
