India, on Thursday, thrashed England by 8 wickets to go one nil up in the three-match series. Barring the first ten overs of England’s innings, the Men in Blue thoroughly dominated the contest to emerge victorious. Kuldeep Yadav was once again the destructor-in-chief- picking up a career-best 6 for 25 to blow away England.

As a result, England were all out for a modest 268 despite being 71 for no loss after ten. In reply, India chased down the total with utmost ease in the 41st over. Rohit Sharma once again starred with the bat, scoring an unbeaten ton while Virat Kohli scored 75 as the duo batted England out of the game.

With the game now done and dusted, we take a look at some interesting numbers and stats:

1. Kuldeep became the first chinaman spinner to take a 6-wicket haul in ODI cricket. His bowling figures are the best for a left-arm spinner in 50-over cricket. The record was previously held by Murali Karthik who had taken 6 for 27 against Australia in 2007.

2. Virat Kohli led India for the 50th time in ODIs on Thursday. In doing so, he became the 7th to lead India in 50 ODIs, after MS Dhoni (199), Mohammad Azharuddin (174), Sourav Ganguly (146), Rahul Dravid (79), Kapil Dev (74), and Sachin Tendulkar (73).
