2- Bigger Test wins for India against England by a runs margin than the 203-run victory at Trent Bridge. The 279-run win at Headingley in 1986 and the 246-run victory in Visakhapatnam in November 2016 are the only two bigger wins.

5- Instances of teams winning by a margin of 200 or more runs in the third Test of a series (four or more matches),after being 0-2 down in the series. India have achieved this twice and both times outside home; the other instance came in Australia in 1977-78. The other three instances were for teams at home.

4- Number of times India have won the third Test after losing the first two Tests in a series of four or more matches. The first three three instances were: against West Indies in 1974-75 at home, and in Australia in 1977-78 and 2007-08.

80.21- Control percentage of India's batsmen in this Test in comparison to England's 73.34. England had better control percentages than India in the first two Tests. The team with better control percentages have won all three Tests in this series so far.

19- Wickets by India's fast bowlers - their second-most in any Test. They have only taken all 20 wickets once, at the Wanderers earlier this year. The previous most wickets by India's fast bowlers in a Test in England was 17 - at Lord's in 2007 and at Trent Bridge in 2011.

2- Successive defeats for England at Trent Bridge, both by large margins. In the Test against South Africa last year they lost by 340 runs. They were undefeated in seven Tests prior to these two matches - won six and drawn one. Five of those victories were by either by an innings or by margins of 300 or more runs or nine or more wickets. Thus, seven of the last eight results at Trent Bridge have been decided by big margins.

5- India captains to win Player of the Match in Tests outside Asia, excluding Zimbabwe. Virat Kohli joined the list, which includes Kapil Dev, twice, in Adelaide in 1985-86 and at Lord's in 1986, Sachin Tendulkar at the MCG in 1999-00, Sourav Ganguly at the Gabba in 2003-04 and Rahul Dravid in Kingston in 2006.
