Milestones and Landmarks

Details of various milestones and landmarks achieved during the Just concluded Indo-Pak series:

Test Series: India won 2-1.

* India posted their maiden triumph in Pakistan during the opening Test match at Multan after a long gap of 49 years and 92 days since their first match way back in January 1955. With this victory India has now notched up Test victories in all countries except South Africa.

* India also emerged victorious in a Test series across the border for the first time. This is India's seventh Test series win abroad, with previous victories registered in New Zealand in 1967-68, in West Indies in 1970-71, in England in 1971 and 1986, in Sri Lanka in 1993-94 and in Bangladesh in 2000-01.

* Saurav Ganguly became the most successful Indian Test captain with 15 Test victories to his credit from 39 matches. In the process, he surpassed the previous best of 14 wins which he had shared with Mohammad Azharuddin (47 Tests as skipper).

*With the series win over Pakistan, India has now pocketed rubber against as many as six different nations : Australia, West Indies, England, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and now Pakistan which remains the Indian record for the most series wins at the same time.

* With the victory in the first Test at Multan, Rahul Dravid registered his maiden Test win as skipper.

* Sachin Tendulkar, with unbeaten 194 at Multan, became the second highest century maker in test cricket with a tally of 33 hundreds to his credit. He eclipsed Steve Waugh's joint record of 32 hundreds and now only compatriot Sunil Gavaskar with 34 tons is ahead of him.

* Opener Virender Sehwag became the first Indian and 17th in the world to score a triple century in test cricket, when he made monumental score of 309 at Multan. In the process, he has plundered the most runs by an Indian in a day's play - making unbeaten 228 on the very first day. He became the only player to complete the respective milestones of hundred and triple century with a six!

* Vice captain Rahul Dravid became the only Indian player to score as many as five double centuries in Test cricket. His tally is now the world behind Donald Bradman(12), Walter Hammond and Brian Lara(7 each), Javed Miandad (6)and Marvan Atapattu (5). He also became the first Indian to occupy the crease for the longest period of 740 minutes. He also notched up three successive double century in as many Test series - against New Zealand, Australia and Pakistan and thus emulated Sir Donald Bradman in scoring three double hundreds in-a-row in as many series with at least one double ton in a series.

* India posted a score of 600 or more runs twice in the same series for the first time in the history.
