    13 India pairs with 2000 or more runs. They completed 2000 runs together during
    their 209-run stand in Rajkot, becoming the only such pair for India since
    2010.81.45 Vijays average in first Tests of a series since June 2014. He has
    scored 896 runs in 11 innings in first Tests including one-match series. His
    average keeps decreasing in the subsequent matches of a series - 52 in the
    second, 25 in the third and 18.83 in the fourth. He has made nine 50-plus scores
    in 11 innings in the first (or only) match match of a Test series in that time
    period.3 Centuries for Pujara in Tests against England - his most against any
    opposition. Before his 124 in this match, he made 206 not out and 135 in his
    first two Tests against England in the 2012-13 home series. He averages 93.66
    against England at home but only 22.20 in England. 1 Number of bigger
    second-wicket partnerships for India against England than Vijay and Pujaras
    here. Rahul Dravid and Gautam Gambhir shared 314 runs in Mohali in 2008-09. This
    is only the third 200-plus partnership for India versus England in the last 20
    years and first since Dravid-Gambhir.2 Number of double-century stands between
    Pujara and Vijay for the second wicket. Only Dravid and Virender Sehwag have
    shared more such partnerships for the second wicket for India, with three.
    Dravid and Gambhir also shared two such stands. Before this match, Pujara and
    Vijay put on 370 against Australia in Hyderabad in 2012-13.126 Vijays score in
    this innings, which is his lowest 100-plus score. His lowest score in six
    previous Test centuries was 139. His strike rate of 41.86 in this innings (126
    in 301) is his second-lowest among centuries.6 Instances of five or more
    centuries being scored in the first two innings of a Test in India. The last
    such Test, before this one, was at Eden Gardens in 2009-10, where South Africa
    had two centuries and India four.

    to another round of Premier League fixtures as the business end of the season
    gets into full swing. The top two are in action, live on Sky Sports, as
    Leicester face a trip to relegation-threatened Sunderland in the first of our
    Super Sunday double header, with Tottenham in action straight after as they
    welcome Manchester United to White Hart Lane - who also need a win as they chase
    a top four spot.Manchester City will be looking to put some daylight between
    themselves and their rivals as they host West Brom on Saturday Night Football,
    while Crystal Palace and Norwich face off in a crucial relegation battle on
    Saturday with both games featuring in this weekends Super 6 picks. Mersons last

    Watford 3-0 Bournemouth 0-4 Man City 1-1 Norwich 3-2 Newcastle 2-1 Stoke 2-2

    2-1 Merse correctly predicted four Premier League outcomes last time, including
    big wins for Arsenal and Chelsea.Read on to see who he is backing this
    week...West Ham v Arsenal - Saturday, 12.45pmBoth teams need to win. Its a good
    game really because a draw is no good to either of them. If Arsenal think they
    are going to win the league then they need to win this and a victory is as
    important to West Ham if they are to get in the top four. Slaven Bilic says his
    side are confident they will do the double over Arsenal for the first time in
    nine years This is a hard one to call because West Ham are doing really well,
    but no one is better than Arsenal when playing without pressure.PAUL PREDICTS:
    1-2 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)Aston Villa v Bournemouth - Saturday, 3pmAston Villa can
    get relegated this weekend, and I just cant see them winning. Last week, Chelsea
    were the better team, but theres a way of losing and theres just no fight there.
    It was just poor. Aston Villa could be relegated to the Championship this
    weekend Since Bournemouth have climbed away from the relegation zone theyve been
    poor. They could have been battered over the last two games, but I think they
    will pass Aston Villa to death on Saturday.PAUL PREDICTS: 0-2 (Sky Bet odds
    8/1)Crystal Palace v Norwich - Saturday, 3pmThis is a massive game. If Norwich
    win this and Sunderland and Newcastle lose, youd think that would be it really.
    Both of them are a fluke result away from being relegated. Merse predicts that
    Crystal Palace will get their first win of 2016 against Norwich this weekend
    Noorwich did well on Saturday, I watched the game and it was a good
    result.dddddddddddd. Crystal Palace picked up a decent result as well, so it
    will be an interesting one.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)Southampton v
    Newcastle - Saturday, 3pmNewcastle have to start winning football matches. They
    have to have an eye on the Crystal Palace versus Norwich game because if Norwich
    win, they have to pick up three points. Rafa Benitez is yet to win as manager
    of Newcastle and Merse cant see a victory coming this weekend If they lose and
    Norwich win, I think thats it. Its goodnight for the Magpies. I watched
    Newcastle the other week and theyve got some good players, but they arent a
    team.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds 12/1)Swansea v Chelsea - Saturday,
    3pmSwansea are pretty much safe for me. They had a good result last week coming
    back from 2-0 down to draw with Stoke. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 15
    Premier League game and thrashed Aston Villa last weekend But Chelsea havent
    been beaten for a while now in the league, and I can see them continuing that at
    the Liberty Stadium this weekend.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-3 (Sky Bet odds 16/1)Watford v
    Everton - Saturday, 3pmWell what Watford team are going to turn up? Is it the
    one thats a decent team or the other one? Watford got well beaten by Arsenal on
    Saturday. Both Everton and Watford have an FA Cup semi finals to play at the end
    of April Theyve got one eye on the FA Cup semi-final as Im sure Everton will do
    as well and neither team can do anything in terms of the Premier League
    table.PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 15/2)Manchester City v West Brom
    - Saturday Night Football, 5.30pm, Sky Sports 1 West Brom had a good result last
    week at Sunderland but I just think Man City will have too much for them. I dont
    think they will have a Champions League hangover because they have to get into
    the top four and if they dont win this game, then all of a sudden its a battle.
    Man City beat Bournemouth 4-0 last Saturday, and Merse predicts another win for
    them live on Sky Sports This is where they can widen the gap between themselves
    and the clubs beneath them because West Ham have got a hard game and so have Man
    United so it is really the weekend where they can cement Champions League
    football for next season.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds 9/2)Sunderland v
    Leicester - Super Sunday, 1.30pm, Sky Sports 1 It could be an advantage for
    Sunderland to play second after their other relegation rivals. If the results go
    the way Ive predicted, then they have a free swing. Leicester are seven points
    clear at the top of the Premier League They have to win this game, but I dont
    think its a must-win for Leicester. They can draw it, but they have to make sure
    they dont lose. PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)Liverpool v Stoke - Sunday,
    4pmLiverpool in the top four is out of the question for me now. Stoke are a
    funny team. They play good football, but theyre 2-0 up and cruising and then get
    pegged back for a draw. Liverpool and Stoke have met three times so far this
    season and each ended 1-0, but Merse predicts a 2-1 Liverpool win on Sunday I
    saw them get well beaten by Southampton the other week at home, but then theyll
    beat teams. Theyre a bit hot and cold at the moment and havent got that
    consistency, but they are still a good team.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds
    7/1)Tottenham v Manchester United - Super Sunday, 4pm, Sky Sports 1 Again, both
    teams have got to win this. Its getting to that part of the season where its
    good because draws are no good to anybody, but I dont see anything other than a
    Tottenham win.Tottenham are a very good team and I expect them to keep the
    pressure on Leicester. They did very well when they had to play catch up with
    Bournemouth and beat them quite convincingly. If Leicester dont win then its a
    bonus. Merse thinks both Tottenham and Man United need to win on Super Sunday If
    Leicester do win, I think that will be it. Even if Tottenham also pick up three
    points, theyd still be seven points behind with five games to go, so for me,
    this weekend is the big weekend.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds 14/1)PLAY SUPER
