82 for 2 - India's total in the first six overs against Scotland, their highest powerplay total in men's T20I cricket. Their previous highest total in the powerplay was 78 for 2 against South Africa in 2018 in Johannesburg. It is also the fifth-highest powerplay total for any team at Men's T20 World Cups.
3.5 - Overs needed for India to bring up their fifty, which is the fastest team fifty for India in men's T20Is. India's previous quickest team fifty was in 4.1 overs on three occasions - against New Zealand in 2007, against Australia in 2016 and against West Indies in 2019.
81 - Balls remaining in the chase when India reached the target, the first instance of India winning a T20I with ten or more overs to spare. Their previous biggest victory in balls to spare was by 59 balls against UAE in the 2016 Asia Cup. India's win is also the third-biggest by balls for any team at Men's T20 World Cups.
18 - Balls needed for KL Rahul to get to fifty, the second-fastest for India in men's T20Is. The fastest is in 12 balls by Yuvraj Singh against England in 2007. Rahul's fifty is also the joint-third fastest in Men's T20 World Cups behind Yuvraj's 12-ball effort and Stephan Myburgh's 17-ball fifty against Ireland in 2014. Glenn Maxwell also scored fifty off 18 balls against Pakistan in 2014.
2 - The number of fifties completed for India inside the powerplay in men's T20Is, including Rahul's knock here. Rohit Sharma also scored exactly 50 runs in the first six overs against New Zealand in 2020 in Hamilton. Rahul is also only the second player to complete a fifty inside a powerplay at Men's T20 World Cups, after Myburgh's effort against Ireland.
64 - Wickets for Jasprit Bumrah in T20Is, the most by a bowler for India in this format. With the two wickets Bumrah picked up against Scotland, he became India's leading wicket-taker in men's T20Is, surpassing Yuzvendra Chahal's tally of 63.
3 for 15 - Ravindra Jadeja's bowling figures in this match are his best in T20Is. Only once before has Jadeja taken three or more wickets in a T20I - against West Indies in 2014. Jadeja was the Player of the Match for his bowling against Scotland, his second such award in T20Is. His first was back in 2012 against Australia in Melbourne.
