Quick Stats : Match 35, RCB v RR
Yuvraj Singh repeats elusive double of 50-plus runs and four wickets
4 Number of times a player has performed the all-round feat of scoring a fifty and taking four wickets in the same match in the IPL. Yuvraj has done so twice. The earlier instance for him was for Pune Warriors India against Delhi Daredevils in 2011. Paul Valthaty and Kieron Pollard are the other players who have done so – once each.
7 Number of no-balls bowled by Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers in IPL 2014 – most by any side.
65 Runs scored by Rajasthan Royals off the last 17 balls of their innings – at a strike-rate of 382.35
83 Yuvraj’s innings is his highest in all T20 cricket, obliterating the 77* he made in a Twenty20 International against Australia last year. His previous highest in the IPL was 66* against Delhi Daredevils in 2011.
84 Runs scored by Royal Challengers Bangalore in their last 5 overs. This equals their best effort in the IPL during the final five-over stretch. They had also scored 84 against Delhi Daredevils at Delhi in 2013. Only two teams have scored more in the last 5 overs – 87 by Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad at Hyderabad in 2013 and 86 by Kolkata Knight Rider vs Deccan Chargers at Hyderabad in 2008.
84.33 Percent of Yuvraj Singh’s runs came in boundaries (7 fours and 7 sixes). Only Chris Gayle had a higher boundary percentage in an innings of 50 or more (twice) for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
132 Runs added by AB de Villiers and Yuvraj Singh – Royal Challengers Bangalore’s highest partnership for the fourth wicket in the IPL.
