India registered an emphatic eight-wicket win in the third Test against England at Mohali on Tuesday, thereby taking an unassailable 2-0 lead in the five-match series. Led by an unbeaten 67 from Parthiv Patel, India cruised home to an eight-wicket win, thereby continuing their undefeated streak in Test cricket.
Here are all the numbers from Day 4:
1-Haseeb Hameed became the first overseas teenager to bat for over 600 balls in India. He surpassed the previous record, held by Kraigg Brathwaite, who batted for 598 deliveries. The right-hander made 58 on Tuesday.
1-This is the first time since 1992-93 that India have won two consecutive Test matches in a series vs England.
5-This is the fifth consecutive series that India have won two or more Tests. Ever since the Test series against Sri Lanka last year, they have won two Tests in each of the series.
2-India's win at the PCA Stadium in Mohali was the 12th occasion when they had gone undefeated in a Test at this venue. This is now their second best record at any venue, the best being the 13-match unbeaten run that they had at the Brabourne Stadium between 1948 and 1965.
2-India’s win in Mohali extended their unbeaten run to 16 matches. They are now just one short of equalling the all-time Indian record of 17, that was achieved under the captaincy of Sunil Gavaskar between 1985 and 1987.
2- Parthiv Patel became only the second Indian wicket-keeper to make scores of 40+ in both innings and feature in five dismissals in a Test. MS Dhoni is the other gloveman to have achieved this feat and he has done so twice.
2-Patel’s score of 67 not out in the second innings of the Mohali Test is now his second highest Test score. His highest score remains the 69 he made against Pakistan in the Rawalpindi Test of 2004.
1-Patel’s half-century on Tuesday was his first fifty after 12 years and 45 days, which is now the Indian record for the longest duration between half-centuries, eclipsing the 11 years and 90 days, held by Lala Amarnath.
