Here we concentrate on match bowling figures.

Best innings bowling in a lost Test:

AY Patel surpasses the previous record by Kapil Dev at Ahmedabad in 1983.

Best match bowling in a lost Test:

Ajaz Patel again. He surpassed the previous record of J Srinath at Kolkata in 1999.

Thus both the records are no longer held by Indian bowlers.

Best innings bowling by NZ bowlers:

Ajaz takes over the record from Sir Richard, who had taken 9-52 against Australia at Brisbane in 1985. Against India, it was Sir Richard again with 7-23 at Wellington in 1976.

Best match bowling by NZ bowlers:

However, Sir Richard still holds this record with 15-123 in the same Test in 1985. Ajaz is in second place here with 14-225 here (10-119 and 4-106).

The best match figures for NZ v Ind were earlier 11-58 by Sir Richard at Wellington in 1976.

And R Ashwin now is second in the list of “Best match bowling without a fiver”:

Here he is second after SK Warne’s 8-24 at Sharjah in 2002.
