An unusual but a record-breaking series for Chase:

5 – Roston Chase is only the 5th player to score a century and bag an 8-wicket haul in the same Test series. Len Braund against Australia in 1903/04, Tony Greig against Windies in 1974, Ian Botham against Pakistan in 1978 and Imran Khan against India in 1982/83 have had a century and an 8-wicket haul in the same Test series.

8/60 – Roston Chase picked up an 8-wicket haul in the 2nd innings of the first Test match and failed to add any more to his tally in this series. No player before Chase has taken more than six wickets in a 3-match Test series with all of them coming in the same innings.

Michael Clarke had figures of 6/9 in the 2004 Test series in India while Tom Horan had figures of 6/40 in the series against England in 1885 where he went wicketless in the remainder of the series.


A rare ton from Chase:

2 – The century by Roston Chase was his 2nd ton in the 4th innings of a Test match with both coming in the losing cause. He is one of the eight players to score two centuries in the losing cause during the 4th innings. Chase was unbeaten on both occasions making him the first player with two unbeaten centuries in the 4th innings coming in losses.


19 – Roston Chase is only the 19th player to score a century and bag a duck in the same Test match for the Windies. During the first Test of the series, Shane Dowrich registered a hundred after bagging a duck in the first essay.


A game of wides:

38 – Number of runs came via wides in this Test match; the most in a single game in Test cricket. The previous highest number of runs coming through wides in a Test were 34 during the 2008 Bridgetown Test between the Windies and Australia.


Anderson levels with Cook:

67 – James Anderson now has been part of 67 wins in Test cricket; the joint-most by any player in this format for England. Alastair Cook also featured in 67 Test victories of England.


Windies’ opening woes come to an end:

4 – Number of fifty-plus stands for the Windies in this Test series for the opening wicket. This is the first time the Caribbean team had four 50+ partnerships for the first wicket in a 3-match series. The new pair of John Campbell and Kraigg Brathwaite failed to put on a fifty-run stand in the 2nd innings of the final Test and also during the 2nd innings of the 2nd Test where they were asked to chase 14 runs.


50.8 – The partnership average for the opening wicket of the Windies in this series is their highest since 2007. (Min: 5 opening stands) The Windies opening pair had an average of 54.4 during the 2006 Test series in Pakistan where they put on 272 runs from five innings.
