178 - Target successfully chased by the Royal Challengers Bangalore against the Rajasthan Royals on Thursday; the third-highest target chased down in the IPL without losing a wicket. The Kolkata Knight Riders had chased 184 against the Gujarat Lions in 2017 without any loss, and the Chennai Super Kings also won by ten wickets in 2020, chasing a target of 179 against Kings XI Punjab in 2020.

4 - Ten-wicket wins for the Royal Challengers in the IPL while no other team has more than two such wins. Their previous three ten-wicket wins came against the Royals (in 2010), the Delhi Daredevils (in 2015) and Kings XI (in 2018), all while chasing targets under 100.

4 - Players who have scored a century in the IPL before their international debuts, including Padikkal against the Royals. Shaun Marsh (115 vs Royals in 2008), Manish Pandey (114* vs Deccan Chargers in 2009) and Paul Valthaty (120* vs Super Kings in 2011) are the other three uncapped players with an IPL century.

2 - Players younger than Padikkal (20 years and 289 days) to score a century in the IPL. Pandey was 19 years and 253 days old when he scored 114* in 2009, while Rishabh Pant scored 128* against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2018 at the age of 20 years and 218 days. Padikkal is also the youngest to score a hundred in an IPL chase, with the previous youngest being Quinton de Kock (23y 112d), when he scored 108 against the Royal Challengers in 2016.

6021 - Runs scored by Kohli in the IPL, the first player to reach 6000 runs in the league's history. Kohli was the first player to complete 4000 IPL runs as well, and the second to 5000 IPL runs only after Suresh Raina.

181* - The opening stand between Kohli and Padikkal, the highest opening partnership in the IPL for the Royal Challengers. The previous highest was 167 between Chris Gayle and Tillakaratne Dilshan against the Pune Warriors in 2013.

0 - Partnerships higher than Kohli-Padikkal's 181* for the Royal Challengers while chasing in IPL. Their previous highest partnership in a chase was 144, between Gurkeerat Singh and Shimron Hetmyer for the fourth wicket against the Sunrisers in 2019. The unbeaten 181-run stand is also the second-highest by an Indian pair in IPL, behind the opening stand of 183 between Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul in 2020, also against the Royals.
