Australia vs India: Numbers from Day 2 at the Sydney Cricket Ground

  1. Cheteshwar Pujara’s 1258 balls faced is the most by a visiting batsman in a four-match series in Australia.
  2. Rishabh Pant’s 159* is the highest score by an Indian wicket-keeper overseas, eclipsing MS Dhoni’s 148 at Faisalabad.
  3. Since 2018, only Virat Kohli and Babar Azam average more than Rishabh Pant in international cricket among batsmen with at least 56 innings.
  4. 7/622 is India’s third highest innings total outside Asia.
  5. Since his debut, nobody has scored as many scores above 90 as Pant.
  6. Australia has bowled 4000+ balls in a four-match series sixteen times, the most recent two coming in their last three series.
  7. Pujara has left 274 balls in the series, only 12 fewer than Tim Paine, Aaron Finch, Marcus Harris, Travis Head, Peter Handscomb and Mitchell Marsh combined.
  8. Mitchell Starc’s average speed in the series is 147.5 km/h, his all-time highest.
