71 - Balls Shikhar Dhawan took to complete his century, the quickest of his career. His previous fastest ODI century came off 73 balls against West Indies in Kanpur in 2013. His unbeaten 132 in Dambulla is his second-highest score in ODIs behind the 137 against South Africa at MCG in 2015 World Cup.
726 - Virat Kohli's average in successful ODI chases over the last one year. In seven innings, he has scored 85 not out, 154 not out, 122, 76 not out, 96 not out, 111 not out and 82 not out, and has been dismissed only once.
127 - Balls remaining for India in this win, the fourth-highest margin in a successful chase of 200 or more runs. India's previous best margin in a chase of 200-plus runs, in terms of balls remaining, was 117 against England at Edgbaston in 2014.
77 - Runs for which Sri Lanka lost their last nine wickets. They were 139 for 1 in the 25th over before this collapse. On two other occasions, Sri Lanka have had a worse collapse for their last nine wickets against India.
16 - Runs accumulated by Sri Lanka's last six batsmen, their lowest ever against India. Sri Lanka's last six batsmen scored 1, 2, 0, 5, 8, 0.
197*- Partnership between Dhawan and Kohli - the highest second-wicket partnership for any team in Sri Lanka. The previous highest was 188 between MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir at Premadasa Stadium in 2009.

6 - Consecutive scores of fifty or more for Dhawan against Sri Lanka in ODIs. In his previous six innings against Sri Lanka, Dhawan had scored 94, 113, 79, 91, 125, 132 not out.
