There were records galore in the second Test of the three-match Trans Tasman series between Australia and New Zealand at W.A.C.A, Perth. Total six batsmen have scored hundreds. The match ended in a draw. Mitchell Johnson ended his career with a three-wicket haul. 

In the first innings, David Warner scored 253 that helped Australia to a first innings total of 559 runs. In reply to Australia’s first-innings total, New Zealand scored 624 and took a lead of 65 runs. Kane Williamson scored 166 while Ross Taylor played a record breaking 290, which is the highest score at the historic W.A.C.A pitch by a non-Australian batsman.

On a fast and flat pitch, Australia took 133 overs to score the total 559. Warner has taken 286 balls to score 253. At the same time, Ross Taylor in his 565-minute innings played 374 balls.

This Test also got into the record books as the second highest scoring Test in Australia and 2nd in the world. Total 1623 runs were scored in this match. The highest was between Australia and India at Sydney Test in 2004, when 1632 runs was scored between two teams. Sachin Tendulkar was the highest scorer of the match as the Indian batting maestro scored 241.

This match has registered another astonishing record as Tom Latham of New Zealand hit the 200th four of the match. The statisticians opened their books to have a look at the history of the most boundaries in a Test match. The Perth Test have already entered the list of eight Test matches, in which total of 200 or more boundaries were scored.

Among the eight matches, Pakistan and India together produced more boundaries than any other pair of countries. The two arch rivals were involved in two matches, which is the most in the history.
