2 Number of centuries made in the Women's World T20 before Harmanpreet Kaur's 103 against New Zealand. Australia's Meg Lanning and West Indies' Deandra Dottin are the other batsman to do so. Click here for a list of the highest scores in the Women's World T20.

97* The previous highest score by an Indian in women's T20Is, which was made by Mithali Raj against Malaysia earlier this year. India's highest individual score in the World T20 before this was by Harmanpreet herself; she had made 77 off 59 balls against Bangladesh in the 2014 World T20.

8 Sixes hit by Harmanpreet Kaur, equaling the second-most in a women's T20I innings. Dottin had hit nine sixes against South Africa in a T20I in 2010 which is the highest individual tally. New Zealand's Sophie Devine had hit eight sixes against India in a T20I in 2015. The eight sixes in this innings are also the most by an Indian T20Is. Harmanpreet beat her own record of five sixes which she hit against Sri Lanka in September.

201.96 Harmanpreet's strike-rate in this innings - the third-highest in an innings of 50 or more runs in the Women's World T20. Only Dottin has struck faster in the tournament history. Harmanpreet's strike rate is the best by an India batsman in a score of 50 or more in all T20Is.

305.88 Harmanpreet's strike rate in the death overs; she faced 17 balls in the last five overs hitting 52 runs off them. Forty of those runs came in boundaries - four sixes and four fours. Harmanpreet had started her innings slowly, having scored just five runs in her first 13 balls before hitting the first of her eight sixes off her 14th. Harmanpreet bludgeoned 98 runs off the remaining 38 balls she faced in the innings at a strike rate of 257.89.

191 for 4 The previous highest total in the Women's World T20 - amassed by Australia against Ireland in the 2014 edition. India's 194 for 5 in this match is also their second-highest in a T20I. They had hit 198 for 4 - their highest - against England in Mumbai in March this year.
