Quick Stats: Match 24, CSK v PWI

CSK’s openers; Mathews’ catches; Dhoni’s strike-rate

1 Faf du Plessis and S. Badrinath provided the first instance of two openers scoring fifties in an innings in IPL 2012. Interestingly, both openers faced the same number of balls (48).

2 Number of ducks recorded by Suresh Raina in IPL. His only other duck – a golden duck – had come against Kings XI Punjab at Mohali in 2011.

3 Number of catches held by Angelo Mathews in Chennai Super Kings innings (to dismiss du Plessis, Badrinath and Dwayne Bravo). He became the second player after Laxmi Ratan Shukla to take three catches in an innings in IPL 2012.

13 The margin of victory for Chennai Super Kings, the second narrowest win by run-margin in IPL 2012 after Kings XI Punjab’s two-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders at Kolkata on April 15.

116 Runs added by du Plessis and Badrinath – the first century partnership for the opening wicket, and third century partnership for any wicket, in IPL 2012.

233.33 MS Dhoni’s strike-rate in the match (28* off 12 balls) – his best in IPL, beating the 216.66 (65 off 30 balls) against Royal Challengers Bangalore at Bengaluru in 2008.
