Stat attack brings to you certain stats from the match that are worth noticing.
Royal Challengers Bangalore are having a dismal season and going from bad to worse with every passing game. As their losing streak continued for the sixth game courtesy some poor batting from the ‘Big Three’ and devastating performances of Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine, the game produced many new records in the 10 year old history of IPL.
Let’s have a look at some of the stats from the game.
- Chris Gayle became the third player to record a duck in 100th game of his IPL career. Harbhajan Singh and Praveen Kumar had achieved the dubious feat before him.
- RCB have crossed 70 run mark after 10 overs just three times this season. This gives a clear indication of how poor their IPL has been.
- The 50 balls taken to reach the 50 run partnership by Mandeep Singh and Travis Head is second slowest in this season of IPL in terms of runs. The slowest is 53 balls taken by Ben Stokes and MS Dhoni against Gujrat Lions.
- RCB has hit just 60 boundaries in between overs 7 and 15 this season – the lowest among all the teams.
- 158 is the lowest total scored by RCB in a completed innings containing two fifties. Previous lowest was 162 vs Chennai Super Kings in 2008.
- 15 balls taken by Sunil Narine to reach his fifty is joint lowest alongside Yusuf Pathan, who did it against SRH in 2014.
- 105 runs scored by KKR in the powerplay is maximum scored by any team in IPL. Previous highest was 100 scored by CSK against MI in 2014.
- The 100 run stand between Chris Lynn and Sunil Narine off 36 balls is joint fastest in IPL alongside Harbhajan Singh and Jagdish Suchith’s partnership off same number of balls against KXIP in 2015.
- This was only the second time Gambhir was batting at No.4 or below for KKR in an innings.
- The difference of 65 runs between Powerplay scores of KKR and RCB is the highest ever in powerplay. Previous highest was difference of 61 runs between CSK (90 runs) and MI (39 runs) in 2015.
- The sixth consecutive loss for RCB is longest ever losing streak in their history. Previous highest was five match losing streak in 2008 season.
