Numbers game
Rohit Sharma

3RD Century of the series for Rohit Sharma and sixth overall. Rohit Sharma and Steve Smith have scored three hundreds each, the joint most, in the World Test Championships

2ND Indian opener — Rohit Sharma — after Sunil Gavaskar (3 times, in 1970s) to score three or more centuries in a Test series

11 Sixes hit by Rohit off Dane Piedt in this series, the most for any batsman against a single bowler in a series

17 Sixes hit by Rohit (below), the most hit by a batsman in a Test series and the most struck this year. West Indian Shimron Hetmyer hit 15 in Bangladesh in 2018-19 in two Tests. Rohit has only played four Test innings, 12 fewer than nearest rival Ben Stokes 

185 Runs partnership between Rohit and Ajinkya Rahane is the fourth highest wicket stand for India vs South Africa. Rahane scored his fastest half-century at home 

9TH Successive time Virat Kohli has became prey to a wrong call to get the Decision Review System right as batsman

11 Times South Africa lost the toss in their last 12 Tests in Asia, including their last 10. They have lost seven Tests, including their last six but have managed to draw four, without winning even a single Test
