Quick Stats : Match 51 – KXIP vs RCB
Miller’s ton, third fastest in IPL history
101: David Miller's unbeaten innings is now the highest score by a number 5 batsman in IPL, surpassing Yusuf Pathan's 100 for Rajasthan Royals against Mumbai Indians at Mumbai BS in 2010.
99: Runs scored by Kings XI Punjab in last 5 overs of their innings. This equaled the record of most runs scored in any 5-over stretch in an IPL game. Rajasthan Royals had also scored 99 (between 12th and 16th overs) against Chennai Super Kings at Chennai in 2010.
62: Runs conceded by Michael Neser – most by a debutant in IPL. Mashrafe Mortaza had conceded 58 for Kolkata Knight Riders against Deccan Chargers in 2009. Incidentally he just missed the ignominy of conceding most runs in an IPL match. This dubious distinction is shared by Varun Aaron and Ashoke Dinda.
38: Balls taken by David Miller to reach his hundred – third fastest hundred in IPL history after Chris Gayle 30 balls (RCB v PWI 2013) and Yusuf Pathan 37 balls (RR v MI, 2010).
24: Number of balls taken by David Miller to reach his fifty. He is the first batsman to score two fifties off 25 balls (or less) in IPL 2013. Miller had scored a 25-ball fifty against Chennai Super Kings at Chennai.
2: Number of batsmen to score a hundred in IPL at number five. David Miller emulated Yusuf Pathan.
