India Defeats England In The Fourth Test

17 – India has secured 17 consecutive Test series victories at home since defeating Australia in 2013. This streak surpasses Australia’s ten-series winning streak at home between 1994-2000 and 2004-2008.

46 – India conceded a 46-run first-innings lead in Ranchi, marking the seventh highest first-innings deficit overturned to win while batting second in Tests. The Ranchi Test is only the 13th instance where India won batting second despite conceding a first-innings lead.

971 – Yashasvi Jaiswal has amassed 971 runs in his eight-match Test career, the highest tally by an Indian batter after eight Test matches, surpassing Sunil Gavaskar’s 938 runs. Jaiswal’s aggregate is also the second-highest by any batter in their first eight Tests, following Don Bradman’s 1210 runs.

23 years, 33 days – Dhurv Jurel, aged 23 years and 33 days during the Ranchi Test, became the fifth-youngest wicket keeper to win the Player-of-the-Match award and the second-youngest Indian player to do so. Ajay Ratra remains the youngest at 20 years and 148 days, achieving the feat against West Indies in 2002.

55 – Rohit Sharma’s 55 runs in the chase mark his highest fourth-innings score in Tests. He had only managed one 50-plus score in fourth-innings in all first-class cricket before this, scoring 52 against Australia in the 2021 Sydney Test.

Rohit’s 55 also stands as the third-highest individual score by an Indian captain in a successful fourth-innings chase, following Sourav Ganguly’s 98* against Sri Lanka in 2001 and 65* against Zimbabwe in 2000.

47 – Rajat Patidar, Ravindra Jadeja, and Sarfaraz Khan, India’s middle-order batters in Ranchi, collectively scored 47 runs. This marks the lowest runs by India’s Nos. 4-6 in a men’s Test since their 45-run total against West Indies in 1983 in Ahmedabad.

The 47 runs by India’s 4-6 in Ranchi across both innings represent the lowest tally for India in a winning match and the 11th lowest for any team in a men’s Test victory.

4 – The combined runs by India’s 4-6 batters in the fourth innings in Ranchi are the lowest by any team in a successful chase in Tests. The previous lowest was 12 by New Zealand against West Indies in Dunedin in 1980.

The quartet’s four runs during the 192-run chase mark the joint-fourth lowest ever by Nos. 4-6 for India in a men’s Test innings.

8 – Eight reviews were dismissed by umpire’s call in Ranchi – six by India and two by England. India used four of those reviews while batting in the first innings.
