Naved's bowling the best at Jamshedpur

** Naved-ul-Hasan Rana's six for 27 (8.4 overs) was the best figures at this ground. Former left-arm spinner Sunil Joshi's four for 38 (in 10 overs) against South Africa on 12-3-2000 was the previous best. It was also Rana's best figures in ODIs.

** It was also the best bowling performance by a visiting bowler in India. West Indian Patrick Patterson had figures of six for 29 (in 9.4 overs) against India at Nagpur, 8-12-1987. Only Anil Kumble's six for 12 (v West Indies at Kolkata, 27-11-1993) betters Rana's effort - for the best performance by a bowler on Indian soil.

** With this loss, India has still not managed to win three matches in a row against Pakistan. The last time the Indians achieved this was way back in March 1985.

** The 145-run partnership between Salman Butt and Shoaib Malik was Pakistan's best against any team for the second wicket in India. The previous best was the 113 between the same pair at Kolkata on 13-11-2004, in the BCCI Diamond Jubilee match.

** Inzamam-ul-Haq (on 4) became the highest run getter against India in ODIs. He went past the 2002 runs by Saeed Anwar. The top three run-getters in ODIs against India are: Inzamam (2022 from 57 matches), Saeed Anwar (2002 from 50) and Sanath Jayasuriya (1903 from 54).

** Salman Butt's 101 was the highest individual score by a Pakistani at this venue beating Javed Miandad's 78 not out against India in 1987. Butt now has two centuries in India (he made 108 not out at Kolkata on 13-11-2004). The only other Pakistan century maker in India is Saeed Anwar (194, Chennai, 21-5-1997).

** Mohammad Sami claimed the 100th wicket (Tendulkar) of his career in his 69th match. He becomes 13th Pakistan bowler and 72nd overall in ODI's to do so.

** Playing in his 249th ODI, Rahul Dravid (on 18) became the 11th batsman (and fourth Indian) to aggregate 8,000 runs. However, his tally includes the 75 not out he made for the Asia XI in the tsunami appeal match at Melbourne. He has 7,935 runs for India in 248 matches.

** The 61-run stand between Mohammad Kaif and Irfan Pathan was the best for the seventh wicket at this venue. The previous best was the 47 (unbeaten) between Dravid and Kaif against West Indies on 6-11-2002.

** Younis Khan joins New Zealanders Ken Rutherford (in 1995) and Chris Harris (2001), and Australian Michael Clarke (in 2004) to become the fourth fielder to take the most catches (4) in a match against India.

** Irfan Pathan (64) registered his highest ODI score eclipsing the 38 he made against Pakistan at Premadasa, Colombo, on 25-7-2004. The 52-run stand between Irfan Pathan & Zaheer Khan was the best for the ninth wicket at this venue bettering the 36 between Pakistan's Saqlain Mushtaq and Arshad Khan against Sri Lanka on 19-3-1999. — Mohandas Menon
