1 Number of batsmen who have made a hundred at No. 7 or lower from a team score lower than Sri Lanka's 26 for 5, when Dhananjaya de Silva came in to bat in this innings. Moin Khan had hit 117 against Sri Lanka in Sialkot in 1995-96 with Pakistan struggling at 15 for 5 in their second innings.
1 Number of Sri Lanka batsmen at No. 7 or lower to have hit a Test century against Australia before de Silva. Romesh Kaluwitharana had made 132 at the same venue in Sri Lanka's first innings in 1992. On that occasion though, Asanka Gurusinha and Arjuna Ranatunga had also got hundreds in that innings.
81.00 Dinesh Chandimal's batting average at No. 6 or lower when he comes in to bat with Sri Lanka's total at fewer than 100 runs. His unbeaten 64 in this innings is his fifth score of fifty or more in such situations. He has failed to score a fifty in such innings only on four occasions.
1 Number of sixth-wicket stands that have added more runs than de Silva and Chandimal from a team score of lower than 50 runs. Abdul Razzaq and Inzamam-ul-Haq added 206 runs for the sixth wicket in Georgetown in 2000 after Pakistan had lost five wickets for 39.
2006 Last time before de Silva anyone had got a Test hundred batting at No. 7 or lower from a team score of less than 50 runs. Kamran Akmal had helped Pakistan script an incredible recovery following a hat-trick by Irfan Pathan in the Karachi Test on that occasion. Akmal had made 113 at No. 8 with Pakistan tottering at 39 for 6. There are only five other occasions, excluding de Silva's and Akmal's, when batsmen at No. 7 or lower have got hundreds in a Test innings from such situations.
1 Number of times Sri Lanka have lost half their side for a lower score than their 26 for 5 in this innings. New Zealand had had them five down for just 18 runs in their second innings of the Kandy Test in 1983-84.
25 Runs scored by Sri Lanka's top-five batsmen in their first innings - their fourth lowest in a Test innings when all five of them have been dismissed. The last time they aggregated fewer runs in an innings was at the same venue in 2005-06, against Pakistan, when they scored only 19 runs.
2.40 Dimuth Karunaratne's batting average against Mitchell Starc - the lowest for a batsman who has been dismissed five or more times by the same bowler in a series. This is only the fourth time in Tests since 2002 that a fast bowler has dismissed a batsman five or more times in a three-match series.
26 for 5 Sri Lanka's score when de Silva joined Dinesh Chandimal at the crease - this equals the lowest score from which a stand for the sixth or lower wicket has added 100 or more runs in a Test innings. The only other instance came in 1952, when Vijay Hazare and Dattu Phadkar added 105 runs in Leeds.
1.61 Jon Holland's economy in this innings; he bowled five maidens and conceded just 34 runs from his 21 overs. Holland, who is playing his second Test, had made an expensive debut in Galle: his economy of 5.32 for the match was the worst for any Australia spinner to bowl at least 20 overs on debut.
