Anil Kumble became only the second Indian to take a dozen wickets in a match in an 'away' series during the Sydney Test after Bhagwat Chandrasekhar, who had returned figures of 12 for 104 also against Australia at Melbourne in 1977-78.

Only four other Indian bowlers have succeeded in taking ten wickets in a match on foreign soil.

Kumble, however, blotted his copy book by getting the dubious distinction of conceding maximum runs in a match by an Indian bowler. Previously, it was Rajesh Chauhan who held that mark. He conceded 276 runs in Sri Lanka's mammoth total of 952 for six at Colombo PSS in 1997-98.

Kumble, though, may take solace from the fact that he went for 23.25 runs for each wicket in a match where an average of 69.88 runs were scored for a wicket. Also, Australia's strike bowler Brett Lee went for 276 runs in his 51.5 overs picking only four wickets in the process.
