The previous most was four each - against West Indies away in 1970/71, against West Indies at home in 1978/79 and against Sri Lanka at home in 2009/10. Rohit became the second Indian opener to hit three hundreds in a series after Sunil Gavaskar, who did it thrice.

17 - Sixes hit by Rohit in the series so far, 13 in the first Test in Vizag and four so far in the Ranchi Test.

185 - The unbeaten partnership of 185 between Rohit and Rahane is the highest for India for the fourth wicket against South Africa, bettering 178 between Virat Kohli and Rahane in the previous Test in Pune. 39 for three is the lowest score from which India has had a 100-plus partnership for the fourth wicket against South Africa.
