14 Number of dismissals made by MS Dhoni off the bowling of Dwayne Bravo – joint-most by any wicket-keeper / bowler combination. Wriddhiman Saha has also taken 14 catches off Sandeep Sharma.
0 Number of overs bowled by Harbhajan Singh in the match – only the second time he did not bowl a single over even though the opposition innings lasted for full 20 overs. The only other such instance for him came while playing for Mumbai Indians against Rajasthan Royals in 2010 when he got injured while batting and was thus unable to bowl.

10 Number of overs taken by Chennai Super Kings for their fifty – the most they have taken in this edition.
4 Number of caught & bowled dismissals in the match – a new record in an IPL match. There had been three matches with three such dismissals.

2 Wickets remaining in Chennai Super Kings’ innings while chasing down the target – narrowest win by any side in an IPL playoff match.
7 Number of times Chennai Super Kings have reached the IPL final. No other side has reached the final more than four times.
