157 The partnership between Deccan Chargers’ Cameron White and Kumar Sangakkara for the third wicket is the highest for any wicket recorded in IPL 2012. The previous best was an unbeaten 145-run partnership, also for the third wicket, between Manish Pandey and Robin Uthappa for the Pune Warriors India against the Delhi Daredevils on April 24.
56 Runs scored by the Deccan Chargers in the last three overs of their innings (25 in 18th, 25 in 19th and 6 in 20th). There has been only one better performance in the last three overs of an innings in all IPL matches. The Chennai Super Kings had added 57 runs to their total in the last three overs (18th to 20th) against Kings XI Punjab at Mohali in IPL 2008.
4 Number of golden ducks recorded by Parthiv Patel in IPL. Amit Mishra (5) and Tillakaratne Dilshan (4) are the others to aggregate four or more golden ducks in IPL. 3 Number of catches held by Daniel Harris as a substitute in IPL 2012. He had taken two catches against the same team – Pune Warriors India – on April 26. 2 Number to batsmen to be dismissed twice off the very first ball of a match in IPL. Parthiv Patel joined Brendon McCullum on the list of batsmen to suffer this fate. 2 The Deccan Chargers registered their second win in IPL 2012. Both the wins came against the same opponent, Pune Warriors India.
1 The dismissals of Parthiv Patel and Manish Pandey provided the first instance in IPL when both sides lost a wicket off the very first ball of their respective innings.
