160 runs - The margin of victory for India, their highest in an ODI against West Indies. For West Indies, this was their second-worst hammering ever in an ODI - the only occasion when they were beaten more convincingly was against South Africa at Cape Town in 2003-04, when they lost by 209 runs.

134 - The number of runs India scored in the last 13 overs of their innings (10.31 runs per over).

November 15, 2003 - The last time, before the Baroda match, that a Sachin Tendulkar ODI hundred led to an Indian victory - he made 102 against New Zealand at Hyderabad in a game which India won by 145 runs. Since then Tendulkar has made four centuries, and has ended up on the losing side each time.

131.57 - Tendulkar's scoring rate in his innings of 100, which is the third-best among all his 41 innings when he has made hundreds. His 101-ball 140 not out (scoring rate 138.61) against Kenya at Bristol is his fastest, while the 92-ball unbeaten 124 against Zimbabwe at Sharjah in 1998-99 comes in next.

7 - The number of times Ajit Agarkar has dismissed Chris Gayle in ODIs. The only other bowler who has had as much success against Gayle is Brett Lee. Rana Naved-ul-Hasan and Shaun Pollock have dismissed him six times. (Click here for the list of bowlers who have dismissed Gayle most often in ODIs.)

200 - Mahendra Singh Dhoni's scoring rate in his innings of 40, which came off just 20 balls. It's his highest strike rate among innings in which he has scored at least 30, beating his earlier best of a 46-ball unbeaten 72 against Pakistan at Lahore in February last year.

7.13 - Dwayne Smith's batting average in his last 21 ODIs. In 16 innings during this period, he has scored a mere 114 runs, with four ducks and only three scores of more than 20.

8.50 - Daren Powell's runs-per-over stat in this match. It's the first time in his 15-ODI career that he has gone for more than seven per over. His previous worst figures (in terms of runs per over) were none for 32 from five overs in the first game of the series at Nagpur.
