# Steven Smith has amassed 499 runs (ave. 71.28) in the four-Test series – the second highest tally by an Australian skipper in a Test series vs India behind the 594 (ave. 59.40) in 12 innings (six Tests) by Kim Hughes in 1979-80.
# India need 87 runs to register a win. The lowest total they had failed to chase was 120 when they were bundled out at 81 vs West Indies at Bridgetown in March 1997.
# Four times, Australia have failed to face 150 overs, losing all 20 wickets in a Test match against India – Melbourne 1977-78, Mumbai 2004-05, Perth 2007-08 and Dharamsala 2016-17. Overall, there have been 47 instances of such a happening in Tests vs India.
