2 Number of World T20 titles for West Indies - they have become the first team to the win the cup a second time. In 2012, they beat Sri Lanka by 36 runs.

24 Runs scored in the last over, the most scored by any team in the last over to win a T20I. The previous highest was 23, by Australia against Saeed Ajmal in the World T20 semi-final in 2010, when Michael Hussey belted him for three sixes and a four. Australia needed 18 to win in that game and got 23; here West Indies needed 19 and scored 24.

85* Marlon Samuels' score, the highest by any batsman in a World T20 final. The next best is also by him: 78 against Sri Lanka in 2012.

3 Number of sixes for West Indies in the first 19 overs of the chase - two by Samuels and one by Dwayne Bravo - before Carlos Brathwaite got into the act in the 20th, with four in four. West Indies had only four overs of 10 or more runs in their first 19.

2 Wickets for Brathwaite in seven T20Is before Sunday's final; in 20 overs, he had conceded 189, at an economy rate of 9.45. In the final, in four overs he took more wickets than he had in those seven games, returning excellent figures of 3 from 23.

5.39 Samuel Badree's economy rate in the 2016 World T20, the best among all bowlers who have bowled at least 18 overs in this tournament. In all World T20s, only four bowlers have done better, with the same 18-over cut-off.

33 Runs scored by England in the Powerplay, their lowest after six overs in this World T20. Their previous lowest in the tournament was 38, against Sri Lanka in Delhi. Before the final, their run rate in the Powerplay overs was 9.12, the highest among all teams in the tournament.

13.20 Eoin Morgan's average in this tournament: in six innings he scored only 66, and never topped the unbeaten 27 he scored in England's first game of the tournament, against West Indies. Morgan had struggled with the bat in the 2015 World Cup as well, scoring 90 runs from five innings.

249 Runs scored by Joe Root in this tournament, the most by any England batsman in a World T20; the previous best was 248, by Kevin Pietersen in the 2010 edition.

6 Runs scored by the four openers in this match, the lowest in a T20I when all four openers have batted. The England openers collectively made 1, which equals their lowest aggregate in a T20I.

7 Wickets for David Willey in the Powerplay overs in this tournament, the most by any bowler. In the 13 overs he bowled in the Powerplays, Willey returned figures of 7 for 84, an average of 12, and an economy rate of 6.46. No other bowler took more than five wickets in the Powerplays in the entire tournament (including the qualifiers).

1 This is the first instance of the same country winning both the men's and women's final in a World T20.

    Interestingly it is the west indies who also got twice the ODI world cup before any one achieves.

    @Clean_Game... you should also check the death bowling and wickets and other status of bowling in which these teams are top of the tables, not indian bowling! you should also check the world cup 2009 where Pakistan bowling did not offer south africa batting to chase 149 target while everyone know the quality of batting by south africa... also check other status , highest wicket takers in t20 top of the list where those are?

    Is there any stat for Sammy. He seems to be a captain from the winning side who had done absolutely nothing with the bat or ball.

    Sometimes when I look at the stats on batting performance, bowling, power play scores and wickets fallen, I feel as a general rule Indian bowling is underrated. Most of the highest totals, highest individual scores are not against Indian bowling which really explains India's bowling is not that bad. Look the stats here, So called best bowling teams Pakistan, England and Sri Lanka are listed above against the batsmen.

    Badree was again crucial to the West Indies' success as he was in 2012. Here, in the final, he took out Jason Roy who had been a catalyst for England's rapid starts. Credit to Sammy for opening the bowling with Badree. In the semi-final, Badree took out Rohit Sharma just when he was looking set for a big one.

    A good catch today in the field too, I don't think anyone could have complained had he received the Man of the Tournament award. He seems like the one Windies player who isn't into the dance moves and bare chested poses. The one bowler in the Windies T20 team who isn't a sort of bits and pieces sort, he ought to be tried in the Tests.

    Incidentally Purple and White , the colours that Marlon Samuels' statistics are shown in the graphic, are the colours of his high school Kinston College
