Most consecutive ODI hundreds, and a WC record for Sangakkara

A stats analysis of the match between Scotland and Sri Lanka in Hobart

4 Number of consecutive hundreds scored by Kumar Sangakkara, the first batsman to do so in ODI history. Six batsmen have previously scored hundreds in three successive ODIs.

1 Sangakkara is the only batsman to score four hundreds in a single World Cup. Mark Waugh, Matthew Hayden and Sourav Ganguly have scored three hundreds each in the World Cup, while no other batsman has scored more than two.

14 Wickets taken by Scotland's Josh Davey in this World Cup, the most by a bowler so far. Trent Boult and Tim Southee are next on the list, with 13 wickets each.

22 Wides bowled by Davey, the most by any bowler in this edition. Mohammed Shami and Tendai Chatara have bowled 16 wides each.

195 The second-wicket partnership between Tillakaratne Dilshan and Sangakkara, the third highest for Sri Lanka in World Cups. Sri Lanka's top three second-wicket stands in World Cups have all come during the 2015 edition, including two partnerships of 200-plus runs each.

1025 Runs scored by Sangakkara across all formats in 2015, the most by any batsman. He is the first player to score 1000-plus international runs in 2015. Kane Williamson is in second place with 900 runs.

5 Number of World Cup hundreds for Sangakkara. Sachin Tendulkar, with six hundreds, is the only batsman with more World Cup centuries. Ricky Ponting also has five hundreds in the tournament.

20 Number of deliveries Angelo Mathews took to reach his fifty - the fastest by a Sri Lanka batsman in World Cups and second-fastest for Sri Lanka in ODIs. Sanath Jayasuriya's 17-ball fifty against Pakistan in 1996 is the fastest ODI fifty for Sri Lanka.

54 Number of dismissals for Sangakkara in World Cup matches, the most for any wicketkeeper. Adam Gilchrist has 52 dismissals while Brendon McCullum has 32.

148 Sri Lanka's margin of victory in this game. This is Sri Lanka's eighth World Cup win with a margin of 100-plus runs. This is also Scotland's second-biggest loss in World Cups.

2038 Runs scored by Sangakkara in Australia, making him the third overseas batsman to score 2000-plus ODI runs in the country. The two other visiting batsmen to make 2000-plus runs in Australia are Desmond Haynes (3067) and Viv Richards (2769).
