Lynn, Gambhir in highest opening stand in IPL

184 The target chased down by Knight Riders, the highest in T20 cricket without losing a wicket. The previous highest was 171 by Perth Scorchers against Melbourne Renegades in December 2015. In IPL, the previous highest target chased down without losing a wicket was 163 by Mumbai Indians against Rajasthan Royals in 2012.

9 Number of ten-wicket wins in IPL. This is the first for Knight Riders. This was the second ten-wicket win in the tournament since 2016, and both have come against Gujarat Lions in Rajkot. In the last season Sunrisers chased down 136 with ten wickets to spare.

5 Bigger partnerships than the unbeaten 184 between Chris Lynn and Gautam Gambhir in the IPL. But, this is the highest opening stand in the tournament's history, surpassing 167-run partnership between Chris Gayle and Tillakaratne Dilshan for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Pune Warrions in 2013. It is also the highest stand for Knight Riders, eclipsing 152 added by Gambhir and Jacques Kallis against Royals in 2011.

1-6 Gujarat Lions' win-loss record when defending totals. While chasing, though, they have a 8-2 record. Teams chasing have won five out of six IPL games in Rajkot.

93*Lynn's score - the third highest for Knight Riders in the IPL after Brendon McCullum's 158* and Manish Pandey's 94. It was also Lynn's third highest score in T20s. Six out of Lynn's seven top scores in T20s have come while batting second. He averages 39.82 when chasing compared to 33.96 in first innings.

12 Fours by Gambhir in his unbeaten 76, equalling the second most he has hit in a T20 innings. It is the second-highest individual score in the IPL without a six behind Mandeep Singh's 77* in 2013. Lynn, meanwhile, smashed eight sixes, equalling the second most for Knight Riders.

287.50 Lynn's strike rate against seamers: he hit 69 runs off 24 balls. Against the spinners, he managed only 24 off 17 balls at a strike rate of 141.17.

19 Balls taken by Chris Lynn to reach his fifty, equalling the second fastest for Knight Riders. Yusuf Pathan had smashed a fifty off 15 balls in 2014 while Andre Russell hit one off 19 balls in 2015.

14.82 Dhawal Kulkarni's economy rate - he conceded 42 runs in 2.5 overs - his worst in a T20 innings, under the condition of having bowled more than two overs.
