Fastest Indian pacers to 100 Test wickets
September 06, 2021

2 - Instances of India winning an away Test match after scoring fewer than 200 in their first innings. The first such win came in 2018 where India managed just 187 against South Africa in Johannesburg.

2 - Second Test win for India at The Oval in 14 attempts. Their only previous win at this venue came in 1971 when they chased down a fourth-innings target of 173 with four wickets to spare.

1986 - The last time India won more than one match in a Test series in England. In 1986, India won the three-match series 2-0. Monday also marked the third Test win as captain for Virat Kohli in England, the most for an Indian captain, going past Kapil Dev's two victories.

99 - First-innings lead conceded by India in this Test. Only three times have they overcome a higher first-innings lead to win a Test match - 274 against Australia at Eden Gardens in 2001, 182 against Australia in 1981 in Melbourne and 131 against West Indies in 1976. India did defeat Australia after conceding a lead of exactly 99 runs in 2004 at Wankhede Stadium.

6 - Instances of England losing a Test match after claiming a first-innings lead higher than 99. Only two of those defeats came at home - 177 against Australia in 1961 in Manchester and 108 against Sri Lanka in 2014 in Leeds.

24 - Jasprit Bumrah became the quickest Indian fast bowler to complete 100 Test wickets, in just 24 matches. Kapil was the previous fastest, taking 25 Tests. He was also the first fast bowler from India to reach 100 wickets in this format.

8 - Centuries for Rohit Sharma in Tests. Each of his eight tons resulted in an Indian win. No other player has more hundreds in this format with all those aiding to team's victory. Warwick Armstrong (6) and Darren Lehmann (5) are the other players to score five or more Test hundreds that all came in wins.

9 - Bowled dismissals for England in this match, the joint-most by any team in a Test against India. These are the most for England in a Test match since the ten dismissals in the 1994 Georgetown Test against West Indies. As many as five England batters were dismissed bowled on the final day's play.

3 - Wins for the team losing the toss in this Test series, the joint-most number of wins for teams losing the toss in a Test series in England. The home side lost after choosing to bowl at Lord's and The Oval, while India lost at Leeds after electing to bat. The last instance of England losing twice in a home Test series after winning the toss was against New Zealand in 1999.
