Stats: Terrible day at work for India, Jos Buttler equals Brad Haddin

India's lowest totals after electing to bat
August 25, 2021

3 - India's total of 78, in the first innings of the Headingley Test on Wednesday, was their third-lowest first-innings total ever.

The poorest was 75 against West Indies in 1987, followed by 76 against South Africa in 2008, both coming in the first innings after they elected to bat.

2 - India's total was the second-lowest first-innings total by any team since electing to bat first since 2011. New Zealand managed just 45 against South Africa in 2013 after choosing to bat in Cape Town.

2 - It was also the second-lowest first-innings total after opting to bat against England in the last 50 years, behind Pakistan's 72 all out in Birmingham in 2010.

22 - Runs added by India for the last six partnerships, the fifth-lowest by them in a Test innings. Their lowest was 11 runs, against Australia in the first innings of the Pune Test in 2017.

2 - Number of times India have had a lower innings total against England than Wednesday's 78. India scored only 42 in their second innings of the 1974 Lord's Test, and were all out for 58 at Old Trafford in 1952.

5 - Jos Buttler was the catcher in each of the first five wickets in the Indian innings. It was only the second instance where the same fielder has been involved (as catcher or stumper) in the first five wickets in a Test innings. Brad Haddin was the first, also against India in 2014 in Brisbane.

19 - Rohit Sharma was India's top scorer in the first innings with 19. Only three times has the highest individual score for India in a Test innings been lower than that (where ten wickets have fallen).

120* The opening partnership between Rory Burns and Haseeb Hameed is England's highest for the first wicket in Tests since the 180-run stand between Alastair Cook and Hameed against India in 2016. It is also the first-century opening stand for England at home against India since Cook added 186 with Andrew Strauss in 2011 in Birmingham.

2 Previous instances of a team batting second ending the first day of a Test match with a first-innings lead, without losing a wicket. New Zealand took a 56-run lead on day one in the 2001 Hamilton Test against Pakistan, while England went 59 runs ahead of Australia on Boxing Day in 2010.
