No stopping Pragyan

m Kevin Pietersen, was dismissed for the 24th time by a leftarm spinner (Pragyan Ojha on this occasion) in his 144 Test innings so far. For the record, he has been dismissed 71 times by right-arm pace bowlers.

m Ian Bell registered his third “first-ball duck” in Tests. The other two came against Australia at The Oval in 2005 and Pakistan at Dubai earlier this year.

m Ojha claimed his fourth five-wicket haul in Test cricket. He now has three five-wicket hauls in his last 4 Test matches. It may be recalled he claimed 6-47 vs West Indies in Mumbai in November 2011 and then claimed 5-99 vs New Zealand in Bangalore in August this year. Incidentally, in his last six Test innings Ojha has now claimed 24 wickets!

m It was the sixth time India have enforced the follow-on upon England. The last was as far back as 2002 at Leeds where India won by an innings and 46 runs. Mohandas Menon
