Mumbai 10 April 2013
200: David Hussey was playing his 200th Twenty20 match. He became only the second player after Albie Morkel (217) to do so.
100: Praveen Kumar was playing in his 100th Twenty20 match. He became the 17th Indian to do so.
32: Runs added by Kings XI Punjab while losing their last seven wickets – from 106/3 to 138 all out!
9: Number of batsmen dismissed caught in Kings XI Punjab innings- equals IPL record. Deccan Chargers (v Mumbai Indians in 2012) and Delhi Daredevils (v Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2012) had also lost 9 wickets in this fashion.
6: Number of times a team has won a match in IPL by 10 wickets. The other instances are: DC beat MI (2008), DD beat KXIP (2009-D/L), RCB beat RR (2010), RR beat MI (2011) and MI beat RR (2012).
2: The Mike Hussey–Murali Vijay pair became only the second pair to put on two century opening stands after the pair of Swapnil Asnodkar–Graeme Smith for Rajasthan Royals.
