• Dhoni has got his second Man of the Match award in Tests - both vs Australia - his first was at Mohali in 2008-09 for recording 92 & 68 not out.

• Chepauk, Chennai is the venue where India have won most Tests (13), followed by Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi (11) and Eden Gardens, Kolkata (10).


• India`s eight-wicket triumph is their biggest in terms of wickets against Australia in Tests. Against Australia, India have won three and lost one out of seven contested at Chepauk, Chennai (Drawn 2 and Tied 1).

• Moises Henriques (81 not out) has posted his highest Test score, eclipsing the 68 in the first innings.

• Henriques` match tally of 149 is the second highest by an Australian batsman against India on Test debut. Michael Clarke`s 168 (151 + 17) in the 2004-05 Bangalore Test is an Australian record against India on debut.

• Dhoni has equalled Sourav Ganguly`s feat of 21 Indian victories in Tests. As against Ganguly`s 49 Tests, Dhoni has played 44 as captain.

• Dhoni has not lost a single Test against Australia in India, winning all five contested by him as captain. India, for the first time, have won four consecutive Tests against Australia in India.

• India`s eight-wicket win is their 21st out of 83 played against Australia in Tests - winning % 25.30 (Drawn 23 and Tied 1).

• Only three bowlers - Vinoo Mankad, Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin - have captured 12 wickets or more for India in wins.

• Henriques and Lyon were associated in a stand of 66 - Australia`s second best against India for the last wicket, next only to the 77 between Dave Gilbert and Allan Border at Melbourne in December 1985 - both the instances are the only ones for Australia when last wicket had produced the highest partnership of the innings.
