August 28, 2021

27 - Test wins as captain for Joe Root. He is now England's most successful captain in Test cricket, surpassing Michael Vaughan's 26 wins.

17 - Number of home Test wins for Root as skipper, only behind Andrew Strauss' 19.

63 - Runs added by India after the fall of the fourth wicket in this match (over two innings), the second-lowest for them when they have batted twice. Their poorest effort came against Australia in 2017 in Pune, when they added just 41 runs.

120 - The total out of India's 356-run match aggregate that came after the first three wickets had gone down. It is the fifth-lowest for them overall, and the lowest since 1959.

3.5 - False shots per wicket by India on the fourth day in Leeds. India lost their last eight wickets on Saturday while playing just 28 false shots. Contrastingly, they lost only two wickets on the third day despite playing 88 false shots. England needed 71 false strokes from the Indian batters to bowl them out for 78 in the first innings.

400 - Wickets for James Anderson in Test matches in England. He is only the second player to bag 400 or more Test wickets in one country after Muthiah Muralidaran (493 in Sri Lanka). The Leeds Test match was his 94th on home soil, the joint-most by anyone in a country, alongside Sachin Tendulkar in India.

2 - Innings defeats for India in 64 Tests under Virat Kohli. The previous one came in 2018, also against England at Lord's, by an innings and 159 runs. The defeat in Leeds is also the second time India have lost a Test where Kohli won the toss. The other such instance was against Australia in 2020 in Adelaide, where they were 36 all out in the second innings.

6 - Test matches at home without a win for England before defeating India in Leeds. Their last home win came against Pakistan at Old Trafford last year. It was England's longest winless streak in Tests at home since eight between 1989 and 1990. The innings win in Leeds was also England's first win in eight Tests since defeating India in February.
