  • It was the 1734th ODI in the cricket history. It was India's 469th and West Indies' 429th match. It was the 66th match between these two sides. The record now reads : West Indies 41,India 23,tied one and abandoned one. Umpires Ian Robinson and Russell Tiffin were officiating in their 79th and 32nd match respectively. Saurav Ganguly won toss for the sixth consecutive time. Darren Ganga (71) recorded his highest ODI score in his 15th match. His previous highest was 66 against Zimbabwe at Harare in this series on June 23.

  • Wavell Hinds ,on 9, completed his 1000 runs in his ODI career. He was playing his 38th match and 37th innings. Hinds became 18th West Indian and the 146th batsman in ODI history to do so.

  • The 108 run partnership between Carl Hooper and Shivnarine Chanderpaul was the second best partnership for the West Indies against India for the fourth wicket after the 126 between Hooper and Jimmy Adams at Jaipur on November 11,1994. However the stand is the best for the Windies against India at a neutral venue. The previous best was the 81 between Viv Richards and Gus Logie at Sharjah on November 30,1986.

  • Hooper's 66 was his highest score as a captain. His previous highest was 57 against South Africa at Port Elizabeth on January 30,1999.

  • West Indies' total (290-6) was its second highest against India in ODIs. The best still remains as the 333-8 in 45 overs at Jamshedpur on December 7,1983.

  • West Indies' innings included three fifties - Ganga (71),Hooper (66) and Chanderpaul (50) ,which equals the record of maximum individual fifties in a match against India. This was the 24th such occasion against India and second for West Indies. The only other instance took place at Berbice on March 29,1983 when Viv Richards (64), Foud Bacchus (52) and Jeff Dujon (53*) scoring fifties.

  • Tendulkar was getting dismissed for the 13th time in his career in his 273rd match. He last failed to open his account in the match against New Zealand at Delhi on November 17,1999 in his 229th match.

  • This was Tendulkar's fourth duck against West Indies. He now equals the tally of four ducks by Arun Lal - the maximum ducks by an Indian batsman against West Indies.

  • This was the fourth time Tendulkar failed to open his account in the grand final of a tournament. His other ducks being : v Pakistan at Sharjah on October 25,1991 (first ball) in Wills Trophy; v Sri Lanka at Colombo (SSC) on September 17,1994 (2nd ball) in Singer Cup and v West Indies at Singapore on September 8,1999 (six balls) in Coca Cola Cup. Tendulkar is now moving towards recording a dubious distinction that is aggregating most ducks in a career for India. With 13 ducks to his name Tendulkar is now placed jointly second among the Indians with most ducks on their name. Javagal Srinath heads the table with 14 ducks while Tendulkar alongwith Anil Kumble and Kapil Dev have 13 ducks to their (dis)credit.

  • The sixth wicket partnership of 101 runs between Reetinder Singh Sodhi and Sameer Dighe was India's second best for this wicket against West Indies after the 113 run-partnership between Kapil Dev and Ravi Shastri at Nagpur on December 8,1987.The partnership was the best ever for the sixth wicket by any team on Zimbabwe soil. The previous best was the unbeaten 90 between Graeme Hick and Mark Ealham for England against the home team at Bulawayo on February 16, 2000.

  • Sodhi (2-31 and 67 runs) recorded his best batting and bowling performances in the same match. Interestingly, his previous best allround performance (53* and 2-43) also came in the same match against Zimbabwe at Rajkot on December 14,2000.

  • The unbroken partnership of 65 runs between Dighe and Debasis Mohanty was the best for the ninth wicket for India against the West Indies. The pair bettered the previous best of 29 runs between Chetan Sharma and Arshad Ayub at Ahmedabad on January 7,1988. The partnership was also the best for the ninth wicket on Zimbabwean soil by any team bettering the previous best of 55 runs between the New Zealanders Chris Harris and Gavin Larsen at Bulawayo on October 1,1997.

  • Sameer Dighe's unbeaten 94 was the highest ever individual score by a "genuine" Indian `keeper in ODIs. Stopgap keeper Rahul Dravid has scores of 145 (v Sri Lanka at Taunton, 26-5-1999) and 103 not out (v West Indies at Singapore, 8-9-1999). Interestingly the previous highest by a genuine Indian keeper against West Indies was a paltry 33 by Kiran More at Nagpur on December 8,1987.Dighe also bettered his previous best of 36*against Australia at Perth on January 30,2000.

  • Dighe's innings was the second highest by any batsman in all matches at number seven. Sri Lankan Hassan Tillekeratne (100 v West Indies at Sharjah on October 16,1995) heads the following list.

  • Corey Collymore (4-49) recorded his best bowling figures in his ninth match.His previous best was the 2-29 against South Africa at Port of Spain on May 12,2001.

  • Leon Garrick became only the second West Indian to take two catches in a match as a substitute. The only other being Keith Arthurton (v England at Gwalior on October 27,1989). The total was India's highest against West Indies while batting second. This obliterated the previous highest of 256 for two in 49.2 overs at Cuttack on November 9,1994.It was also only the 17th occasion a side scored 250 plus runs batting second against West Indies. India's total was also the third highest by any side against West Indies batting second and still losing the match. Sri Lanka had made 329 at Sharjah on October 16,1995 and Australia had made 274 at Lord's in 1975 World Cup final. The match aggregate of 564 for the loss of 14 wickets was a new record in India-West Indies matches. This bettered the previous highest of 537 for 14 at Berbice on March 29,1983. India has not won a tournament since November 1998, when it won the Coca Cola Cup at Sharjah beating Zimbabwe in the final. Since then India has qualified for the final of a tournament on as many as seven occasions without winning once.

  • Saurav Ganguly has now captained India in five tournaments (consisting of three or more teams) only to lose the final on three occasions. India lost to New Zealand in the final of ICC Knock Out at Nairobi in October 2000 and then to Sri Lanka in the final of Sharjah Cup at Sharjah in the same month.
