Dhoni's records, and Pakistan's mid-innings slump

Stats highlights from the first one-day international between India and Pakistan in Guwahati.

  • India's five-wicket win was only their seventh in home ODIs against Pakistan. In 22 games they have lost 15.

  • In the 19 overs between the 14th and the 32nd, Pakistan scored just 57, a run-rate of three, while they didn't manage a single boundary in 128 deliveries. In those 19 overs in the Indian innings, 87 runs were added.

  • Mohmmad Yousuf became the eighth Pakistan batsman to reach 1000 ODI runs against India. His tally stands at 1080. Javed Miandad, Saleem Malik, Ijaz Ahmed, Saeed Anwar, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Shahid Afridi and Shoaib Malik are the others in the 1000-run club. Yousuf has now scored nine half-centuries against India, and averages 36 from 35 matches.

  • This was Sachin Tendulkar's 403rd ODI, which equals Sanath Jayasuriya's record for most number of one-day internationals played. Inzamam-ul-Haq is third with 378 games.

  • The 105-run stand between Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh was the eighth century partnership for the fourth wicket by India against Pakistan in ODIs.

  • Dhoni's 63 was his third 50-plus score as captain. Among captains who have also kept wicket, only four - Andy Flower, Alec Stewart, Adam Gilchrist and Tatenda Taibu - have scored 50-plus runs more often.

  • Dhoni also became the first wicketkeeper - and the 15th batsman - to score 2500 ODI runs for India. It was his 19th 50-plus score as an Indian wicketkeeper, which is a record. Dravid had 18.
