Quick Stats : Match 34, KKR v KXIP
After starting with 3 ducks, Gambhir gets 3 50s in as many innings
9 Kolkata Knight Riders won the match by nine wickets – their biggest win in terms of wickets in hand. They had also beaten Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals by an identical margin in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
17 Number of innings after which Sehwag scored a 50 in the IPL.
35 Number of balls taken by Sehwag to reach his 50 – his second-slowest in the IPL. He scored a 36-ball 50 against Kochi Tuskers Kerala in 2011.
55 Runs scored by Kolkata Knight Riders in the first six overs – the most they have scored in Powerplay in IPL 2014.
3 Number of consecutive 50-plus stands put up by the Kolkata Knight Riders openers. Robin Uthappa and Gautam Gambhir had added 121 and 106 against Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils respectively. This is the third time KKR openers have performed this feat. Sourav Ganguly and Chris Gayle also did so in 2010, while Gambhir and Brendon McCullum had 50-plus stands in three consecutive matches in 2012 in which they opened together (but Gambhir opened with Bisla in between that stretch).
