8 – Ten-wicket match hauls for R Ashwin in Test cricket, the joint-most for an Indian, alongside Anil Kumble. Only four bowlers have taken more 10-wicket match hauls in this format than the Indian duo.
34 – Five-wicket hauls in Tests for Ashwin, only one behind Kumble’s 35. Ashwin now shares the fifth place for most five-wicket hauls in Tests with Rangana Herath.
6 – Test matches where Ashwin has taken five or more wickets in both innings. Only Muthiah Muralidaran (11) and Herath (8) have done it more often than Ashwin, while Sydney Barnes also had five-fors in both innings on six occasions.
7 for 71 – Ashwin’s figures in the third innings, the best figures in Test cricket for an Indian in the West Indies, bettering his own 7 for 83 in Antigua during the 2016 tour. Only Ishant Sharma (10 for 108 in the 2011 Bridgetown Test) had a ten-wicket match haul in the West Indies before Ashwin’s 12-for.
12 for 131 – Ashwin’s match figures in Dominica are the fourth-best for any bowler in a Test match in the West Indies. His match figures are the second-best for a spinner in the Caribbean, behind Tony Greig, who took 13 for 156 with his offspin in Port of Spain in 1974.
280 – Runs aggregated by West Indies in Dominica, the lowest by them against India in a Test match where they have been bowled out in both innings. The previous lowest was 322 runs at Sabina Park in 2006 and during the 2019 home series in Antigua. These are also the third-fewest runs by West Indies in a Test match at home.
2 – Test matches with a lower aggregate by the home team against India, than West Indies’ 280 in Dominica (where they got bowled out twice). England were bowled out for 102 and 128 at Headingley in 1986, while New Zealand aggregated 240 runs across both innings at Eden Park in 1968.
8 – Indians with a Player-of-the-Match award on Test debut, including Yashasvi Jaiswal in Dominica. Only two of the previous seven players won that award debuting away from home – Pravin Amre against South Africa in Kingsmead in 1992 and RP Singh in Faisalabad during the 2006 tour of Pakistan.
23 – The Dominica Test was the 23rd Test match where Ashwin had accounted for the match-winning wicket. These are the most instances for any bowler in Test cricket, surpassing Shane Warne’s 22.
