Most wins against a team
This was India’s 32nd win over Australia in Test format. With this, it became the most win against any one team. Indian batsmen won 22 matches against England and 31 against Sri Lanka.
Now this is the points table of WTC
With 10 wins and 4 draws in 17 matches, Australia is on top with 136 points. Now India has also won the 10th match. With 2 draws in 16 matches, Team India currently has 123 points and is on the second position. If India defeats Australia in three matches from here, then its WTC final qualification will be confirmed.
History repeated in first innings
The Indian team was reduced to 262 in reply to Australia’s 263 in the first innings. This happened only once in this century when a visiting team managed to take a lead against India despite scoring less than 300 runs in the first innings against India. The Australian team did this in the Pune Test in 2017 and the same team repeated their history with a one-run lead in the first innings of the Delhi Test.
