SA's lowest totals in 102 years
1913-14 The last and only other instance of South Africa being dismissed for sub-200 totals five times in a series. Back then England had been their tormentors. This time it is India. South Africa's 121 in Delhi marks the fifth time in six innings that they have been bowled out for under 200.
8.33 Faf du Plessis's average in this series and his duck today was his third in four Tests. Du Plessis has made just 50 runs in six innings, and 39 of them had come in one innings. He recorded the third-worst average for a South African top-order batsman in a series having played six or more innings. It is also the third-worst average for an overseas top-order batsman in a series in India having played six or more innings.
8 Five-wicket hauls by Ravindra Jadeja in first-class cricket in 2015-16. His 5 for 30 today took his tally to 60 wickets this season at an average of 11.43, which is the third-best for any bowler with at least 50 wickets in a season since 2005-06. Jadeja has taken 21 wickets in this four-Test series against South Africa at an average of 10.61.
0 Individual hundreds in this series before Ajinkya Rahane's 127. AB de Villiers' 85, from the first innings in Bangalore, had been the previous highest score till now.
47 Runs Rahane had made in six Test innings at home, before his hundred in this one. This was his second Test at Feroz Shah Kotla, where he had also made his Test debut in 2012-13. Back then, he had managed just eight from two innings. Rahane also passed his previous best in Tests against South Africa - 96 in Durban in 2013-14. Overall, Rahane has made 1519 runs in Tests at 42.19, with five hundreds and seven fifties.
86 The previous best partnership of this series, put on by Cheteshwar Pujara and M Vijay in Mohali. Rahane and R Ashwin eclipsed that with the 98 runs they added for the eighth wicket. That means this series is still without a hundred partnership. This was also the third-highest stand for India's eighth or lower wickets in Tests against South Africa.
1996 The last time, before R Ashwin's 56 in this game, that an India batsman coming out at No. 9 or lower made a fifty in Tests against South Africa. It had been one of India's lead spinners back then too: Anil Kumble had struck 88 in Kolkata. Kiran More's 55 in Durban Test in 1992-93 is the only other such fifty.
1987 Prior to Kyle Abbot's 5 for 30, the last time an overseas fast bowler took a five-wicket haul in Delhi was 28 years ago. West Indies' Courtney Walsh had taken 5 for 54 in the second innings, Patrick Patterson had taken 5 for 24 in the first innings of that Test. Overall, Abbott's effort was only the sixth instance of a visiting seamer taking a five-for at Feroz Shah Kotla. This was also the first five-wicket haul by any fast bowler in Delhi since Javagal Srinath took 5 for 60 against Zimbabwe in 2000-01.
1.61 Abbott's economy rate. He bowled 24.5 overs and conceded only 40 runs. The last time a fast bowler took a Test five-wicket haul in India at better economy was in 1997-98 - Michael Kasprowicz's claimed 5 for 28, conceding only 1.55 runs per over. Overall, Abbott was sixth on the stingy fast bowlers to take five wickets in an innings in India. Abbott's economy rate is also the fourth-best by any pacer under condition of bowling at least 20 overs in Feroz Shah Kotla.
1 Five-for by Abbott in Tests before this one. He had taken 7 for 29 in Centurion - the second-best bowing figures by a South African on debut - against Pakistan in 2012-13. Abbott has taken 18 wickets at an average of 17.55 in five Tests. This was also the best returns by a fast bowler in this series, surpassing Morne Morkel's 3 for 19 in Nagpur.
195 Runs added by India after the fall of their sixth wicket - the fifth-best aggregate after losing their first six for fewer than 150 runs. The last time they put on more runs for their final four wickets was against New Zealand in Ahmadabad - 201 after being six down for 65 runs.
50 Wickets for Umesh Yadav at an average of 38.04 in 17 Tests. He reached the mark by bowling JP Duminy with a peach of an outswinger. Umesh is the 14th India fast bowler to take at least 50 Test wickets.
