4 Batters to have hit five sixes in an over in the IPL: Chris Gayle hit five in a row off Rahul Sharma in 2012, Rahul Tewatia against Sheldon Cottrell in 2020, and Ravindra Jadeja off Harshal Patel in 2021 were the previous three instances. Rinku Singh becomes the fourth player on this list after his feat against Yash Dayal.
31 Runs scored by Knight Riders in the last over, the highest any team has managed in the 20th over to win a men's T20 chase (where ball-by-ball data is available). The previous highest was 26 by Deccan Chargers against Knight Riders in 2009 when 21 runs were needed in the last over.
29 Runs needed for Kolkata Knight Riders in the final over for a win against Gujarat Titans. These are the most runs any team has successfully chased in the 20th over of a men's T20 (where ball-by-ball data is available).
The previous highest was 23, achieved twice: by Sydney Sixers against Sydney Thunder in 2015, and by Rising Pune Supergiants against the erstwhile Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) in 2016.
1 Number of instances of a team scoring 30-plus runs in the 20th over of a men's T20 chase before Knight Riders on Sunday (where ball-by-ball data is available). Somerset scored 34 against Kent in a T20 Blast game in 2015 when they needed 57 from the last over.
3 Successful 200-plus chases by Knight Riders in the IPL, the joint second-most for a team, drawing level with Chennai Super Kings (3). Only Punjab Kings with four 200-plus chases are ahead of the two. The 205-target Knight Riders chased down in Ahmedabad was Knight Riders' second highest behind the 206 against Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2019.
0.61 Win probability per ESPNCricinfo's forecaster when Knight Riders needed 28 runs off the last five balls. After Rinku's first four sixes, the numbers changed to 1.05, 1.98, 10.0 and 20.56, respectively.
4 Hat-tricks for Rashid Khan in T20s - the most by any bowler in the format. Rashid was level with five other bowlers on three hat-tricks prior to this game: Amit Mishra, Mohammad Sami, Andre Russell, Andrew Tye and Imran Tahir.
69 Runs conceded by Yash Dayal in his four overs. These are the second-most runs conceded by a bowler in an IPL match, behind Basil Thampi's 70 for Sunrisers Hyderabad against Royal Challengers in 2018.
