England beat India in 4th Test: Here're the records broken
England defeated India by 60 runs in the fourth Test at Southampton. With this victory, Joe Root-led England have clinched the ongoing 5-match series. The architects of this win were Sam Curran and Moeen Ali. Chasing 245, Virat Kohli (58) and Ajinkya Rahane (51) put in a brave fight but couldn't salvage the match. The match saw some records being scripted. Here're the same.
Kohli gets past 6,000 runs in Test cricket
India skipper, Virat Kohli, who needed six to cross the 6,000-run mark in Tests, achieved the same in the first innings itself. He achieved it in his 70th Test match. Kohli became only the 10th Indian to score 6,000+ runs in the 5-day format. Kohli became the ninth fastest batsman to score these many runs. Further, he has already scored 500+ in the series.
Records galore: 4th Test- England vs India
Moeen Ali became the fifth spinner to claim his second career five-for against India in Tests outside Asia. Rishabh Pant joined Irfan Pathan and Suresh Raina to notch the record for the most balls faced to score a duck in a Test innings (29). Pant also saw himself facing the most balls by a keeper in a Test innings to score a duck.
Indian bowlers impress- Records
This is the first time that five different Indian bowlers claimed 10-plus wickets each in a single Test series. Ishant Sharma became only the 7th Indian to claim 250+ wickets in Test cricket. He also surpassed 50+ Test wickets against England. R Ashwin became only the 5th Indian spinner to take 100+ wickets outside home in Tests.
Curran scripts slice of record
England's 20-year-old all-rounder Sam Curran became the first player to score 20+ runs in first six Test innings since debut while batting at number 8 and lower position. His scores read 20, 24, 63, 40, 78 and 46.
