The numbers from a gruesome RCB defeat

Royal Challengers Bangalore broke all the wrong records against Rising Pune Supergiant BCCI

61 Margin of defeat for Royal Challengers Bangalore, the third-largest in a chase of 160 or less. The largest was also recorded by RCB, only last week, when they lost by 82 runs chasing 132.

18.58RCB's average runs per wicket in 2017, the second-worst for any team in any IPL season, behind only Rajasthan Royals' 18.15 in 2009. Last season RCB averaged 41.98 runs per wicket, the highest for any team in an IPL edition.

3 Lockie Ferguson's 4-1-7-2 is the third-cheapest four-over spell in the IPL. Fidel Edwards and Ashish Nehra had conceded just six runs off their full quota in 2009. In his only other IPL match, Ferguson had gone for 44 runs without taking a wicket.

18 Dots bowled by Ferguson, the most by a bowler in an innings this season. He bested the tally of 17, jointly held by Samuel Badree, Chris Morris and Pawan Negi.

15 Overs that yielded six runs or fewer in the RCB innings. They could only get four runs or less in 11 of those 15 overs.

7 boundaries hit by RCB. Only once have they been kept quieter - in their very first IPL match, when they were bowled out for 82 scoring three fours and three sixes.

4 RCB's 96 for 9 is the fourth-lowest total for a team batting out the 20 overs. The lowest is Kings XI Punjab's 92 for 8 against Chennai Super Kings in 2009. RCB's previous lowest total under this condition was 105 against Rajasthan Royals in 2009.

40 single-digit dismissals for RCB in this IPL, nearly twice as many as their closest rivals Kings XI's (21).

8, 5, 3 AB de Villiers' scores in his last three matches. It is the first time in his IPL career that he has fallen for three successive single-digit scores.
