208 - The target chased down by India in the first T20I against West Indies is their highest ever in T20Is. The previous biggest target chased down was 207 against Sri Lanka in Mohali in 2009. Overall, this is the fifth-highest successful run-chase in T20Is.
3 - Number of times India have successfully chased 200-plus targets, which is now the most among all teams. Australia and South Africa have each done it twice. All the three successful 200-plus chases of India have come in India. In fact, the visitors have put on 200-plus scores against India four times in India and three of those scores were chased down by the hosts.
94* - Virat Kohli's score in this match - his highest of T20I career. His previous best was 90 not out versus Australia at Adelaide in 2016. He hit six sixes in his innings, which are also the joint-most he has hit in a T20I. This was Kohli's 23rd fifty-plus score in the format, which is also the most among all batsmen.
10-2 - India's win-loss record when chasing at home in T20Is since 2016. Both the defeats were against New Zealand. India's win-loss ratio of 5.00 is the best among all teams at home when chasing.
60 - Runs conceded by Kesrick Williams, are the most by a West Indies bowler in a T20I. They are also the joint second-worst figures by a bowler against India.
50 - Runs scored by Kohli from 15th over onwards, in just 16 balls. He smashed two fours and five sixes in these overs to seal the chase with eight balls to spare. The other two batsmen in this phase - Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer - scored only 16 runs from 14 balls they faced.
29 - Innings taken by KL Rahul to complete 1000 runs in his T20I career. Only two batsmen have got to the milestone in fewer innings - Babar Azam (26 innings) and Kohli (27). Aaron Finch also took 29 innings for the same. Rahul became the seventh India batsman to score 1000 runs in the format.
12 - Number of Man-of-the-Match awards for Kohli in T20Is - the joint-most for a player, equalling Mohammad Nabi. This is his second award in T20Is this year.
