110 - Kumar Sangakkara's score, which was his sixth ODI century, but his first in a winning cause against a major team. His previous hundreds in victories were against Kenya and Bangladesh. (Click here for a list of Sangakkara's hundreds.)
39.84 - Sangakkara's batting average in the 143 ODIs in which he has kept wicket. In the 44 games he has played as a specialist batsman, he only averages 26.26.
4 for 49 - Munaf Patel's bowling figures, which are his best in an ODI, beating his previous best of 3 for 18 against England at Jaipur in October last year.
1 - The number of times Sachin Tendulkar has been stumped off a legspinner in international matches, after today's dismissal by Malinga Bandara.
7205 - The number of runs added together by Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, the highest by any pair in ODIs. They average 47.40 per stand, while the 100 they added at Rajkot was their 21st century partnership.
4 - The number of times, in 26 ODIs, that Sreesanth has conceded less than four runs per over. His effort at Rajkot was his first such performance in seven games.
70.58 - Mahendra Singh Dhoni's strike rate (48 off 68 balls). In ODI innings in which he has faced at least 50 balls, this was his second-slowest - against England at Faridabad last year, Dhoni made 38 off 55 balls (scoring rate 69.09).
14 - The number of wickets Lasith Malinga has taken in his last eight ODIs, at an average of 20.21.
