India vs Australia, 1st Test – Day 4: Statistical highlights

Adelaide: Statistical highlights of the first Test between India and Australia at the Adelaide Oval here Friday.

In only seven Tests in 2014, David Warner has completed his 1,000 runs - his aggregate being 1061 (ave.75.78), including six centuries and three fifties.

Simon Katich (before David Warner) was the last Australian opening batsman to complete 1,000 runs in Tests - his tally being 1021 (ave.56.72) in eleven Tests in 2008 and 1111 (ave.48.30) in thirteen Tests in 2009.

Ishant Sharma has posted his seventh duck vs Australia - his 20th in Tests - his fourth in Australia.

Zaheer Khan (29), Bhagwat Chandrasekhar (23), Bishan Singh Bedi (20) and Ishant (20) are the Indian players with most ducks in Tests.

In his last three innings vs Australia, Ishant has posted ducks - one each at Mohali, Delhi and Adelaide.

Steven Smith (162 not out + 52 not out), for the first time, has amassed 200 runs in a Test match. For the first time in a Test match, he has recorded a hundred and a fifty.

Warner (145 & 102) has become the fifth player to post a hundred in both innings of a Test match twice in a calendar year. Before that, he had managed 135 & 145 vs South Africa at Cape Town in March this year. The first four batsmen to achieve the distinction were Clyde Walcott (WI) in 1955, Sunil Gavaskar (India) in 1978, Aravinda de Silva (SL) in 1997 and Ricky Ponting (Australia) 2006

Warner became the second Australian batsman to post a hundred in each innings of a Test match against India. Don Bradman was the first to do so - 132 & 127 not out at Melbourne in January 1948.

Warner's impressive 102 off 166 balls is his eleventh century in Tests - his third against India. With this, he has registered six centuries in Tests this year. Only Ricky Ponting has recorded more hundreds for Australia than Warner in a calendar year - seven in 2006. Matthew Hayden had made 6 in 2002 and Ponting - six in 2003.

The world record is held by Mohammad Yousuf – nine hundreds in eleven Tests in 2006.

Nathan Lyon (5/134) has recorded his second five-wicket haul against India - his sixth in Tests. His first was 7 for 94 (a career-best) at Delhi in March 2013.

In the last five years, Graeme Swann (Eng), Shane Shillingford (WI) and Lyon are the three right-arm off-spinners to have produced two instances each of five-wicket hauls against India.

Lyon has become the second Australian spinner to take five wickets in an innings against India in a Test match in Australia. Bobby Simpson was the first to record the feat - 5 for 59 at Sydney in January 1968.

Mohammed Shami (34) has posted his second highest score in Tests behind the 51 not out vs England at Nottingham in July 2014.

Karn Sharma conceded 24 runs in an over - the second most expensive over by an Indian spinner since 2001. Harbhajan Singh had conceded 27 to Shahid Afridi against Pakistan at Lahore in January 2006.
