662 - The total runs scored in this match. Only six times has an ODI yielded more runs. It's also the most number of runs ever scored in an ODI in India, beating the earlier record of 655 when New Zealand played India at Rajkot in 1999. (New Zealand made 349 for 9 while India replied with 306 all out.)

324 - The runs scored by West Indies. It's the third-highest total in a losing cause by the team batting second in ODIs. Pakistan's 344 for 8 against India at Karachi in 2004 is the highest, while Sri Lanka made 329 against West Indies at Sharjah in 1995.

364 - The number of runs scored in boundaries through the day. In all the two teams cracked 67 fours and 16 sixes.

112 - The number of runs India scored in the last ten overs. West Indies had scored 13 more than India at the 40-over stage, but only managed 85 in the last ten.

44.45 - Shivnarine Chanderpaul's batting average in ODIs when he has opened the innings. All his five centuries have been scored from that position. When batting in any other position he only averages 31.67.

48.23 - Sourav Ganguly's batting average in ODIs against West Indies. This was his tenth half-century and his highest score against them in 25 matches.

60.11 - Chris Gayle's batting average in ODIs against India in India. In nine matches he has scored five fifty-plus scores

154.28 - Rahul Dravid's strike rate in this match (54 off 35 balls). Among the 86 innings when he scored fifty or more in ODIs (74 fifties, 12 hundreds) this was his second-fastest scoring rate, behind his unbeaten 50 off 22 balls against New Zealand at Hyderabad in November 2003.
