New Delhi: The statistical highlights of the opening day's play in the first Test between India and the West Indies on Sunday.
# Kraigg Brathwaite (63 off 212 balls) recorded his highest Test score, eclipsing the 50 against Bangladesh at Dhaka last week.
# Brathwaite is the second West Indian player to post two half-centuries before reaching 19. Jeffrey Stollmeyer had registered 59 at Lord's and 59 at The Oval in the 1939 Test series against England.
# Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, with Marlon Samuels' catch, became the first Indian wicketkeeper and the 13th to effect 200 dismissals in Tests - 174 catches and 26 stumpings in 62 matches.
# The previous Indian record was held by Syed Kirmani with 198 dismissals in 88 Tests - 160 catches and 38 stumpings.
# Dhoni is now the first Indian wicketkeeper and the eighth overall to record the double of 3,000 runs and 200 dismissals.
# As captain, Dhoni has effected 117 dismissals - 105 catches + 12 stumpings in 32 Tests.
# Brathwaite and Chanderpaul shared a stand of 108 for the fourth wicket - West Indies' third stand of 100-plus at Feroz Shah Kotla, behind the 267 between Sir Clyde Walcott and Gerry Gomez in 1948-49.
# Shivnarine Chanderpaul (111 not out off 167 balls) completed his 24th century in Tests - his seventh against India - the most against one nation.
# Chanderpaul has equalled Vivian Richards' tally of 24 centuries in Tests and only Brian Lara (34) and Garry Sobers (26) have posted more centuries than Chanderpaul for the West Indies.
# Chanderpaul is the fifth player to post seven hundreds or more against India. He has joined Gary Sobers and Vivian Richards (eight each), Everton Weekes and Clive Lloyd.
