171 - Runs scored by the Kolkata Knight Riders after the fall of the fifth wicket with the score on 31, the most by a team in an IPL match after losing five wickets. The Royal Challengers Bangalore held the previous record with 130 runs in 2016 against the Gujarat Lions, when they chased down 159 after being 29 for 5.

The 171 runs by the Knight Riders is also the second-highest by any team in a T20 game after the fall of the fifth wicket. The highest is 184 by the Jamaica Tallawahs to chase down a target of 224 from being 41 for 5 against the Trinbago Knight Riders in CPL 2018 (courtesy 121* off 49 balls from one Andre Russell).

66* - Pat Cummins' score while batting at No. 8 for the Knight Riders, the highest in IPL while batting at No. 8 or lower. Harbhajan Singh's 64 against the Kings XI Punjab in 2015, also from No. 8, was the previous highest from such a batting position.

0 - All-out totals higher than the 202 by the Knight Riders. The previous highest all-out total in the IPL was 188 by the Mumbai Indians way back in 2008, while chasing a 190-run target against the Kings XI Punjab.

The Knight Riders are also just the second team in T20 history to register a 200-plus total after losing half their side inside 50 runs. The Jamaica Tallawahs, against the Trinbago Knight Riders in CPL 2018, recorded the first such instance.

202 - The Knight Riders' total is the highest by any team in T20 cricket with eight batters getting out in single digits. The previous highest with as many or more single-digit scores was 175 by Australia against Pakistan in the 2014 World T20. The Knight Riders' total is also the first 200-plus total in T20s to include four ducks.

4 - Wickets for Deepak Chahar inside the first six overs in this match. He is the first player to take a four-wicket haul for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL during the mandatory powerplay. The Super Kings took five wickets inside the first six overs, the first such instance for them in the IPL.

58 - Runs conceded by Sam Curran in his four overs, the joint-most conceded by a Super Kings player in an IPL game. Mohit Sharma also conceded 58 runs against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2015. Curran's third over cost 30 runs, the joint-most expensive over by a Super Kings bowler in the IPL. Lungi Ngidi also conceded 30 runs in the last year's game against the Rajasthan Royals, where he conceded four consecutive sixes to Jofra Archer.

0 - Instances of two individual fifties from Nos. 7 or lower in an IPL innings before today. The duo of Russell and Cummins produced just the second such instance in all T20 cricket. The first such occasion came during Jammu & Kashmir's innings against Haryana in Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy 2012-13.
