Kohli the Chaser, Dhoni the Finisher (1:55)

Here are some numbers from India's Asia Cup Final win over hosts Bangladesh, including MS Dhoni's six-hitting prowess and Nehra's excellent starts (1:55)

6 Asia Cup wins for India; the previous five were in the 50-over format. Sri Lanka have won it five times, and Pakistan two. For Bangladesh, this was their second defeat in an Asia Cup final: in 2012 they lost to Pakistan by two runs in the 50-over final.

84.22 Virat Kohli's average when batting second in T20Is: he has scored 758 runs in 16 innings, with seven not outs. When batting first he averages 35.88. Among the 55 batsmen who have scored at least 300 runs in chases, Kohli's average is by far the best: the next highest in Michael Hussey's 52.62, while MS Dhoni is third on 46.44.

12 Instances when MS Dhoni has finished off a successful chase with a six - nine times in ODIs and three times in T20Is. He has done it once in Tests (off Jeetan Patel of New Zealand in Bangalore in 2012) and two times in IPL.

333.3 Dhoni's strike rate, his best in a T20I innings when he faced at least six balls.

300 Sixes for Dhoni in international matches, which puts him fifth in the all-time list, after Shahid Afridi, Chris Gayle, Brendon McCullum and Sanath Jayasuriya.

60 Shikhar Dhawan's score, his highest in T20Is, and only his second 50-plus score in 18 innings. His previous best was 51, against Sri Lanka in Ranchi last month. His four highest scores in T20Is have all come in 2016.

16-6 India's win-loss record in T20Is since the beginning of 2014. The only team which has done better during this period is Afghanistan, with a 14-5 record. The next best after India is New Zealand, with a 12-7 record.

7 Wins on the trot for India in T20Is - their last defeat was in Pune against Sri Lanka. They have won eight on the trot away from home, all of them in 2016. Their last away defeat was against Zimbabwe in Harare in July 2015.

114 Runs scored by Mahmudullah, off 67 balls, without being dismissed in Bangladesh's last four matches in this tournament, at a strike rate of 170.14. He was dismissed for seven in the first game, against India, but then notched up unbeaten scores of 36, 23, 22 and 33.

176 Runs scored by Shabbir Rahman in this Asia Cup, which is the most in the tournament (excluding the qualifiers). He made an unbeaten 32 off 29 in the final.

50 T20Is for Mushfiqur Rahim. He became the first Bangladesh player to appear in 50 T20Is.
