2 - The 100-run partnership for the fourth wicket for India in their second innings of this Test between Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane came off 297 balls. This is the slowest century partnership for India in the last 20 years for any wicket coming as it did at a run rate of 2.02.

2 - Mohammed Shami smashed a fifty in the third innings of Lord’s test match which is his second half-century in test cricket. His both half-centuries came against England in their den.

13 - Spearhead of Indian pace attack Jasprit Bumrah bowled 13 no-balls in the second innings of this Test match which is a new Indian record. The previous record was held by pacer Ishant Sharma who bowled 10 no-balls against Australia at Mohali in 2010.

49 - Skipper Virat Kohli now has played 49 international innings without a century. His previous biggest century-less streak was 25 international innings between February 2014 to October 2015.

4 - Virat Kohli became the fourth successful captain in Test cricket with 37 wins in the 63 Test matches that he has led his side. He surpassed the record of former West Indies skipper Clive Lloyd, who won 36 Test matches in his captaincy. Only Graeme Smith (53), Ricky Ponting (48) and Steve Waugh (41) have more Test wins under their captaincy than Virat Kohli now.

3 - Virat Kohli is the only the third Indian captain who won a Test match at Lord’s. Former captains Kapil Dev (1986) and MS Dhoni (2012) also won one Test match each at the same venue in their captaincy.

1 - Sam Curran was dismissed on duck in both innings of the Test match. Sam Curran registered King Pair for the first time in his Test career.

2 - As Indian pacers picked up 19 wickets in this Test match, this is only for the second time in their Test cricket history that spinners haven't taken a wicket for India in consecutive Tests. The first time it happened was against Pakistan in Karachi and Faisalabad in 1989/90.

3 - India won a total of three matches at Lord’s in Test cricket. India has won more Test matches than at Lord’s in only one away venue, i.e., Melbourne (4).

1 - English skipper Joe Root’s magnificent knock of unbeaten 180 runs in the first innings went in vain as India won this Test match. This is the first Test century of Joe Root which ended in a defeat after the first 21 Test centuries resulted in wins. The world record for the most centuries without one in losing cause is held by former Proteas skipper Graeme Smith, with 27 centuries.

6 - Unbeaten knock of 180 runs by Joe Root is the sixth-highest individual score for England in a Test defeat.

4 - Unbeaten knock of 180 runs by Joe Root is also the fourth-highest individual score by a captain to end up in defeat. Only Brian Lara (202), Steve Waugh (199), Marcus Trescothick (193) registered higher scores than Root in a Test defeat as captain.

1 - Virat Kolhi won the most number of away Test matches (6) despite losing the toss among Indian captains. He surpassed the record of Sourav Ganguly who won 5 away Test matches despite losing the toss.

5 - England became only the fifth team to register 7 ducks in a Test match. Australian batsmen registered this record thrice while Proteas batsmen also suffered such a measly record once.

India will now play England in the third Test match of the ongoing five-Test series at Leeds between August 25-29.
