Team India needed only 2.5 overs on the final morning to clinch the Test match at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham to reduce the series lead to 2-1. During the short period of play, James Anderson got to double digits for the first time in a year before Ravichandran Ashwin claimed his first wicket of the match by dismissing the left-hander. England lost the game by a 203-run margin as they scored 319; their 3rd highest 4th innings total at home.

All the stats and numbers recorded during India’s 7th Test win in England:

1 – Only the 3rd time India have won a Test match where spinners took one wicket or none. No spinner bowled for India when they faced South Africa in the Johannesburg Test match this year. Last time, a spinner claimed only one wicket was in the Kandy Test against Sri Lanka in 2001.

2Virat Kohli is only the 2nd Indian skipper with a Man of the Match award in a Test match in England. Kapil Dev won the match award in the 1986 Lord’s Test where he led India to their maiden win at the venue.


4 – Kohli’s four wins outside Asia in Test cricket are the most for an Indian skipper alongside MS Dhoni. Only Sourav Ganguly (6) has won more Tests outside Asia.


6 – The Man of the Match award in this game was the 6th as captain for Virat Kohli. All the previous five awards came in the home Test matches. Only four captains have more MoM awards in Test cricket.


11James Anderson’s 11 is his first double-digit score in 27 innings in Test cricket. The last time he got to double digits in this format was when he made 12 against South Africa at the Lord’s last year. Anderson’s 11 in the 2nd innings of this Nottingham Test is the first time in 19 Test innings that he managed to cross five.


11 – This match is only the 11th in Test cricket where a team came out to bat on the final day after losing nine wickets in their 4th innings. The last such instance was Australia in this year’s Durban Test match against South Africa. The batting sides lost on all the 11 such occasions thus far.


17 – Number of England batsmen out caught by India in this Test. This is only the 6th time that India recorded 17 caught dismissals with the ball. They had as many as 17 England batsmen out caught during the Nottingham Test in 2011 as well. These two are the only such instances in the last 36 years.


19 – Number of wickets Indian pacers claimed in this Test match. These are the 2nd most number of wickets taken by fast bowlers for India in a Test. They took all the 20 wickets during the Johannesburg Test match earlier this year against South Africa.


22 – Virat Kohli is now the 2nd most successful captain for India in Test cricket with 22 wins and surpassed Sourav Ganguly’s tally of 21 wins. Kohli is now only behind MS Dhoni (27) but has led India in 22 matches fewer than Dhoni.
