Key stats

  • Cheteshwar Pujara made his 17th Test hundred (a 319-ball 106 punctuated by 10 fours) to help India make a 400-plus first-innings total, while sharing a 170-run partnership for the third wicket with Kohli.
  • Kohli himself made his 20th Test half-century, a 204-ball 82, punctuated by nine fours.
  • Pat Cummins made his second Test half-century in the second innings of the Test with Australia set 399 for victory. His 114-ball 63 is now his highest score in Test cricket. He was the only Australian batsman to make a 50-plus score in the Test.
  • Jasprit Bumrah turned the Test match in India’s favour by recording his best bowling figures in an innings in Test cricket with 6/33 in Australia’s first innings. He walked away with a match haul of 9/86.
  • This was India’s seventh Test win on Australian soil and Kohli 26th as India’s Test captain.
