Quick Stats: Match 13 – CSK v RCB
Last-ball win for CSK in game of 23 sixes
23 Number of sixes hit in the match – the most in IPL 2012.
28 Runs conceded by Virat Kohli in the penultimate over of the match – the most expensive over in IPL 2012. 27 runs were conceded in one over bowled by two bowlers, Harmeet Singh and Bipul Sharma, against Pune Warriors on April 8. Interestingly, that was also the penultimate over of the innings.
45 Runs scored by Chennai Super Kings batsmen in the last two overs – the most in IPL history. Kolkata Knight Riders’ batsmen had scored 43 runs off the last two overs (19th and 20th) of the innings in the first ever IPL match, against Royal Challengers Bangalore, in 2008.
76 Number of sixes hit by Chris Gayle in just 30 innings in IPL. Now only Gilchrist (83) and Suresh Raina (82) are ahead of him on this count.
109 Runs added by Chris Gayle and Virat Kohli for the second wicket – the first century partnership for any wicket in IPL 2012.
208 for five by Chennai Super Kings – the second highest successful chase in IPL history, after Rajasthan Royals’ 217 for seven against Deccan Chargers in 2008.
400 Albie Morkel’s strike-rate (28 runs off seven balls) – the highest in an innings of more than five balls.
