  • Indiaís 416 is their second-highest, first innings total against England after being inserted. Their highest is 481 for 4 at Madras in 1981-82.
  • The Indian first innings saw the fourth time that they had completed an innings against England with two (or more) centurions but no other player passing fifty. In these circumstances, their 416 is their third-highest total.
  • Based on losing their first five wickets for fewer than 100 runs and in a completed innings, Indiaís recovery in adding 318 runs is their third best against all opposition. Their best is 370 runs (83-5 to 453 all out) against West Indies at Kolkata in 2013-14.
  • Based on the same as above, it is also the best recovery in a Test at Edgbaston. The previous best was 214 (82-5 to 296 all out) by Pakistan against England in 2010.
  • Rishabh Pant became the first Indian wicket-keeper to score three Test centuries against England. Budhi Kunderan had scored two in 1963-64.

  • Bairstow heads the above list with most centuries within those five or more innings (4).
  • Pant became the second Indian wicket-keeper after Farouk Engineer to score a hundred and a fifty in the same Test.

  • Bairstow became the first England player since Sir Andrew Strauss in 2008-09 (vs. India at Chennai) to score centuries in both innings of a Test. He is the eleventh England player to achieve the feat.
  • The unbroken partnership of 269 between Bairstow and Root is the third highest for any wicket by a winning side in the fourth innings of a Test. The highest is 301 between Arthur Morris and Don Bradman against England at Headingley in 1948.

  • Ollie Popeís first Test duck was reached in his 48th innings. This is the eighth-highest number of innings, the record being held by Abraham de Villiers (78). The most by an England player is James Anderson (54).
