Mumbai: Statistical highlights of the fifth day's play of the fourth Test between India and England at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
- India's win by an innings and 36 runs at Mumbai is their biggest over England in Tests at home.
- India's other three wins by an innings are – by innings and 22 runs at Chennai in 1992-'93, innings and 15 runs at Mumbai in 1992-'93 and innings and eight runs at Chennai in 1951-'52.
- For the second time, India have won three Tests in a row versus England – Visakhapatnam, Mohali and Mumbai. The first time was under Mohammad Azharuddin's captaincy in 1992-'93 – in Kolkata, Chennai and Mumbai.
- India have won eight Tests out of 11 played (three draws) this year, equalling their previous record of most wins in a calendar year - eight wins, three losses and three draws out of 14 played in 2010.
- For the third time, a team has lost by an innings after making 400 or more in the first innings of a Test match. The first team to earn this dubious distinction was England themselves, who lost by an innings and 39 runs to Australia at The Oval in 1930. Sri Lanka had lost by an innings and 14 runs to England at Cardiff in May 2011 and now England have lost by an innings and 36 runs to India.
- Virat Kohli became the first Indian captain to win five successive Test rubbers – 2-1 versus Sri Lanka in 2015; 3-0 versus South Africa in 2015-'16; 2-0 versus West Indies in 2016; 3-0 versus New Zealand and 3-0 (leading) versus England, both in 2016-'17.
- India had previously won five consecutive series under three different captains – Anil Kumble, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Virender Sehwag between 2008 and 2010.
- The world record for winning most consecutive series is held by Australia and England – nine each.
- After losing three successive series to England between 2011 and 2014, India have finally won a series against them.
- Ravichandran Ashwin's bowling figures of 12/167 are the best by a spinner in a Test at the Wankhede stadium, eclipsing the 12/181 by Laxman Shivaramakrishnan against England in 1984-'85.
- Ashwin's performance is the best by an Indian bowler at the Wankhede and the second best by any bowler on this ground, next only to Ian Botham's 13/106 in February 1980.
- Ashwin is the sixth Indian bowler to take 10 wickets or more in a Test against England. Other five were Vinoo Mankad, Salim Durani, Shivaramakrishnan, Chetan Sharma and Kumble.
- Ashwin's 12 for 167 is the second best figure in wins by an Indian bowler against England in a Test match, next only to the 12 for 108 by Mankad at Chennai in 1951-'52.
- Ashwin's first instance of 10 wickets or more in a Test match against England is his seventh instance overall. Kumble is the only bowler to have recorded more instances (eight) than him.
- With six instances of 10 wickets or more in a Test match in Indian wins, Ashwin has established an Indian record, surpassing the five by Kumble.
- Ashwin has taken 15 five-wicket hauls while taking 133 wickets in 20 Tests at an average of 19.40 since January 2015 – the highest tally by any bowler in two successive calendar years. Muttiah Muralitharan had bagged 14 five-wicket hauls in consecutive years twice – between 2000 and 2001 and 2006 and 2007.
- Kohli has got his fourth Man of the Match award in Tests - his first instance of receiving two awards in a series – at Visakhapatnam and Mumbai.

- Alastair Cook has lost 21, won 24 and drawn 13 out of 58 Tests as the England captain. He has equalled an England record held by Mike Atherton, who had also lost 21 out of 54 (13 wins and 20 draws) Tests.
