Although Root fell short of his second successive double-ton, his 186-run knock also entered the records book. Root posted a score of 150+ in successive Test matches for the first time in his career (First Test: 228).
This is the first time in Test history that pacers took all ten wickets in one innings, and spinners in the other, for a team (England). 1st innings: Anderson (6), Wood (3), Curran (1). 2nd innings: Bess (4), Leach (4), Root (2).
