  • Out-of-form Rahul Dravid (180) needs two catches to overtake Mark Waugh's tally of 181 catches and to establish a world record for most catches in Test cricket.

  • Zaheer Khan (194) needs six wickets to complete his 200 Test wickets. He would be the seventh Indian to bag 200 wickets or more. The Indian bowlers in the 200-wicket club are: Anil Kumble (619), Kapil Dev (434), Harbhajan Singh (310), Bishan Singh Bedi (266), Bhawat Chandrasekhar (242) and Javagal Srinath (236).

  • In case of an Indian victory at Mohali, Captain MS Dhoni would be extending his India record of five successive wins from captaincy debut. Only England's Percy Chapman (9) and Australia's Warwick Armstrong (8) have recorded more consecutive Test wins from their captaincy debut than Dhoni.

  • Virender Sehwag needs just 55 more runs to become the first Indian to aggregate 1,500 runs in a calendar year.

  • If India manage to complete a clean sweep in Mohali, then it will be skipper MS Dhoni's 5th straight win since becoming India's Test captain.
