26 Number of Test hundreds for Younis Khan, the most by a Pakistan batsman. His hundred in the first innings put him joint highest with Inzamam-ul-Haq, but he now holds the sole record.
40 Number of years since a batsman made two hundreds in the same Test against Australia. Glenn Turner scored 101 and 110 against them in Christchurch in 1974. This has happened nine times against Australia, with West Indian great Clyde Walcott achieving it twice.
7 Number of Pakistan batsmen who have made hundreds in both innings of a Test match - Younis Khan became the seventh.
4 Number of sixes hit by Ahmed Shehzad during his innings of 131. He is the first Pakistan opener to hit more than three sixes in a Test innings.
66 Number of years since Australia have successfully chased a 400-plus target in Tests, against England in 1948. Successful chases of 400-plus have happened four times in Test history, but a target of 438 or more has never been chased successfully.

3 Number of instances where Pakistan batsmen have scored three or more hundreds in a Test against Australia. Both previous Tests ended in draws. This Test is the sixth instance of Pakistan batsmen scoring four hundreds in a game - three of those against India.
2 Number of Pakistan openers who have scored a hundred against Australia since 2000. Prior to Ahmed Shehzad's century during Pakistan's second innings, Salman Butt had scored two hundreds, in 2005 and 2010.
9 Number of 50-plus opening partnerships for Pakistan in the last three years. Bangladesh and Zimbabwe are the only teams with fewer such opening stands during this period. Pakistan's openers posted 71 runs during their second innings.
1 This was the first time David Warner was dismissed stumped in 154 innings across all forms of international cricket.
