Arbit Statistics - 18

The Arbit Statistics return after a long hiatus. India's huge victory in the 2nd Test at Hyderabad have led to a list of some quirky statistics which deserve to be, umm... listed.
  1. Australia have become the 1st team in Test history to have lost the match by an innings after declaring the 1st innings. A singularly unique achievement. 
  2. The 2 Australian innings combined scored 368 runs which was 2 short of the Vijay-Pujara stand. To put further perspective to the value of the partnership, the rest 9 Indian wickets added 133 runs.
  3. With this win (his 22nd as captain), MS Dhoni now climbs to the top of the leaderboard for the most Test wins by an Indian captain moving ahead of Saurav Ganguly.
Now, awaiting some more odd stats, as the series progresses.
