# Alastair Cook has been stumped in a Test innings for the second time -- the first occasion being after making a hundred (106), by Prasanna Jayawardene off Rangana Herath at Lord's last year.

# Cook set another record -- his tally of 12 hundreds in a winning cause is a record for England in Test cricket.

# Cook's match-winning innings (190) got him his second Man of the Match award against India -- his fifth in Test cricket.

# Kevin Pietersen posted his ninth duck in Tests -- his first against India.

# England's victory by seven wickets is their second in 10 Tests against India at Eden Gardens. The last occasion when England won two Tests in a row in India was during the 1976-77 Test series. In fact, they had lost three Tests in a row -- by an innings and 25 runs at Delhi; by 10 wickets at Kolkata and by 200 runs at Chennai.
