BENGALURU: India have now won 15 consecutive Test series at home. No other team ever has won more than 10 consecutive Test series at home.
Ravi Ashwin, with 442 Test wickets, has now become the eighth highest wicket-taker in Tests. During the series, he surpassed Kapil Dev (434) and Dale Steyn (439).
R Ashwin has now snaffled 100 wickets in World Test Championship (WTC) – most by any bowler.
Ravindra Jadeja has not dismissed any batsman more than Angelo Mathews (8) in Tests. He has snared Alastair Cook and Moeen Ali seven times each.
Angelo Mathews has been dismissed by R Jadeja 8 times in Test matches now. No other bowler has dismissed him more times. New Zealand’s Tim Southee has nipped him out seven times.
Sri Lanka are yet to win a Test match in India. Out of 22 Tests on Indian soil, Sri Lanka have lost 13 and drawn nine.
Out of four Day-Night Tests they have played, India have won three.
Dimuth Karunaratne has now scored six Test hundreds as a Sri Lanka captain. Only Mahela Jayawardene (14) and Kumar Sangakkara (7) have scored more Test tons than him for Sri Lanka as captains.
Dimuth Karunaratne is the second overseas opener to rack up a fourth-innings ton in India. Then Australian captain Mark Taylor scored an unbeaten 102 in Bangalore in 1998.
In the first Test at Mohali, Jadeja became the fourth Indian to score a hundred and take a five-wicket haul in a Test match. Vinoo Mankad was the first to attain this feat in 1952 against England.
Jadeja’s 175 at Mohali is the highest score by an Indian batting at No.7 or lower in Test matches. Earlier, Kapil Dev had scored 163 against Sri Lanka at Kanpur in 1986.
In the second Test at Bengaluru, Rishabh pant smashed the fastest half-century (28 balls) by an Indian in Tests. He surpassed Kapil who had hammered a fifty in 30 balls against Pakistan at Karachi in 1982.
