Number of wickets Jimmy Anderson has taken in Tests at Lord's -- the first bowler to complete a century of wickets at this ground.
Muttiah Muralitharan is the only other bowler with 100 wickets at a particular ground -- 166 at Colombo SSC, 117 at Kandy and 111 at Galle.


Jimmy Anderson's bowling average in the Test -- 9 wickets for 43 runs.
Only two bowlers have managed a better average than Anderson in a Test against India while taking 9 or more wickets -- Ernie Toshack (2.82, 11/31) for Australia at Brisbane in 1947-1948 and Fred Trueman (4.44, 9/40) for England at Manchester in 1952.


Number of ducks Jimmy Anderson inflicted on Indian batsmen in the Lord's Test -- joint-most by any bowler in a Test against India.
Imran Khan had done the same at Karachi in 1982.
The Test record is 8 held by England's Jim Laker against Australia at Manchester in 1956.


Number of wickets taken by Jimmy Anderson against India -- the most by any bowler in India-England Tests.
Jimmy surpassed Bhagwat Chandrasekhar's tally of 95 wickets.
Now only one bowler -- Muttiah Muralitharan -- has taken more wickets (105) in Tests against India.


Number of players who were part of a winning side without facing a ball, bowling a ball, taking a catch or effecting a stumping. Adil Rashid became the first to do so against India.
