The wicket of Mohammed Shami not only took Jimmy Anderson past Glenn McGrath's tally of 563 Test wickets, it completed three astonishing home summers, in which he has taken 102 wickets at an average of 15.

The sixth-wicket stand of 204 between KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant was India's second-highest for any wicket in the fourth innings of a Test. 

The highest also came at The Oval, back in 1979, when Sunil Gavaskar and Chetan Chauhan opened with a stand of 213.

Rahul made 149 in one innings, having made 150 in his first nine knocks of the series.
