Statistical highlights on day four

of the third cricket Test between India and England here.

# India have won seven, lost one and drawn five out of 13 Tests played at Mohali. India's win/loss record of 7-0 at this venue is the third best by any team in any venue during the last 20 years.

# For the first time, India have won four successive Tests at Mohali -- between 2010 and 2016 -- two against Australia and one each against South Africa and England.

# England have lost three Tests out of four played at this venue (drawn one).

# For the fifth time, India have won two or more successive Tests vs England. In the 1992-93 Test series in India, they had won three in a row -- one each at Kolkata, Chennai and Mumbai.

# India have played 16 consecutive undefeated Tests between August 2015 and November 2016 -- their second longest unbeaten sequence behind the 17 Tests between 1985 and 1987.

# Parthiv Patel's unbeaten knock of 67 is his second highest score in Tests, next only to the 69 vs Pakistan at Rawalpindi in April 2004.

# Patel is averaging 52.60 in a winning cause in Tests -- his tally being 263 in eight innings, including two fifties.

# Overall, Patel has scored five fifties in Tests -- two each against Pakistan and Australia and one vs England.

# Murali Vijay has posted his second duck vs England -- his fifth in Tests. Apart from his two ducks vs England, he has registered one duck each against West Indies, Australia and Sri Lanka.

# Vijay, for the first time in 21 Tests on Indian soil, has recorded a duck.

# Ravindra Jadeja has been adjudged the Man of the Match for the fourth time in Tests -- one each vs England, New Zealand, South Africa and Australia.

# Joe Root has registered his 25th fifty in Tests -- his sixth vs India.

# Root, with two catches in India's second innings on November 29, became the first England fielder to take 25 catches or more in a calendar year in 15 Tests. The said tally is the highest by any fielder in Tests in 2016.

# Root's tally of 11 fifty-plus innings (3 centuries and 8 fifties) is the highest by any batsman this year in Tests.

# Virat Kohli, as skipper, has won 12 Tests, lost two and drawn six out of 20 Tests -- winning percentage 60.00. India, under Mahendra Singh Dhoni's captaincy, had similar figures in his first 20 Tests.
