# Darren Sammy is the first West Indian and the seventh fielder to take five catches in an innings. He has joined Graeme Smith, Yajurvindra Singh, Mohammad Azharuddin, Kris Srikkanth, Vic Richardson and Stephen Fleming.

# Shane Shillingford has captured five wickets or more in an innings in his last five innings - three times vs Zimbabwe followed by once each at Eden Gardens and Wankhede Stadium. Only Australia's Charlie Turner has taken more five-wicket hauls (six) in succession in Tests - all against England in 1888. England's Tom Richardson and Sir Alec Bedser have also accomplished the feat of capturing five wickets in an innings five times in succession.

# Shillingford (43-6-179-5) has earned a dubious distinction by conceding the most number of runs for the West Indies vs India in a Test innings, obliterating his tally of 55-9-167-6 at Eden Gardens in the first Test of the present series.

# Shillingford is the only West Indian bowler to concede 175 runs or more in an innings twice in Tests. His figures vs South Africa at Basseterre in June 2010 were 52-4-193-3.

# Shillingford is the second West Indian spinner to take five wickets in an innings at Wankhede Stadium - the first being Lance Gibbs - 7 for 98 in January 1975.
