# Clarke has been dismissed at 91 three times in Tests. # Clarke and Wade have shared a stand of 145 - Australia's highest for the fifth wicket against India in India, eclipsing the 139 between Damien Martyn and Jason Gillespie at Chepauk in October 2004.

# Ravindra Jadeja (3/33) has registered his best bowling figures in Tests, bettering the 3 for 72 against Australia at Chennai.

# After Pakistan's declaration at 130 for 9 against England at Lord's in 1974, Australia's declaration is the first by a team on the first day of a Test match.
