All the major statistical highlights from the 2nd day of the Indore Test match:
A season of double tons for India:
4 – At least one player has scored a double century in each of last four Test matches for India. They thus become the first team to have a double centurion in four consecutive Test matches. Mayank also hit a double ton in the 1st Test against South Africa while Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma scored 200s in 2nd and 3rd match of that series.
4 – This is the 4th instance in a calendar year where India had as many as four individual double centuries in Test cricket. Four individual Test double tons were scored for India in 2004, 2016 and 2017 as well.
Mayank’s record knock:
12 – Mayank Agarwal needed only 12 innings to score his 2nd double century in Test cricket; the 2nd fewest innings for any player. Vinod Kambli got his 2nd Test double ton in 5th innings only.
A run-feast in Indore:
407 – India amassed 407 runs during the 2nd day’s play; only the 3rd time they have scored 400+ runs in a single day’s play. India finished the first day of the 2009 Kanpur Test against Sri Lanka at the score of 417/2. In the very next game in Mumbai, India piled 443/1 on the 2nd day of the Test.
A day of milestones for Rahane:
4061 – Ajinkya Rahane became the 16th player to score 4000 runs in Test cricket for India. He completed the milestone when he reached his individual score of 25 in the first innings.
3052 – Rahane scored 3052 runs out of 4061 Test runs while batting at No.5. He is the 15th player to score over 3000 runs in Test cricket while batting at No.5. Mohammad Azharuddin (4346) and Sourav Ganguly (3440) are the other Indian players with 3000+ Test runs for India at No.5 position.
A rare duck for Kohli:
2 – Virat Kohli became only the 2nd Indian captain to bag a duck in International cricket against Bangladesh. Sourav Ganguly was also dismissed without scoring on the 2nd ball he faced during the 2004 Dhaka ODI.
