Stats - Akash Madhwal's record effort, MI's big win in playoffs

All the numbers from Mumbai Indians' first win against Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL

1 - Akash Madhwal became the first bowler to claim a five-wicket haul in a playoff match in the IPL. The previous best bowling figures in the playoffs or knockouts were 4 for 13 by Doug Bollinger for Chennai Super Kings in the 2010 semi-final against Deccan Chargers.
101 - Lucknow Super Giants' total against Mumbai Indians is the third-lowest in the IPL playoffs. The lowest is 82 all out by Deccan Chargers against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the third-place playoff in 2010, while Delhi Daredevils were bundled out for 87 against Rajasthan Royals in the semi-final in 2008.
5 - Runs conceded by Madhwal in his five-wicket haul. It is the joint-cheapest five-for in the IPL. Anil Kumble also conceded only five runs during his five-wicket haul against Royals in 2009.
5 for 5 - Madhwal's figures against LSG are the best for an Indian bowler in the IPL, as he equals Kumble's figures from 2009. Madhwal's figures are also the joint fourth-best in the IPL.
6 - Bowlers with consecutive hauls of four or more wickets in the IPL, including Madhwal, who took a four-wicket hauls against Sunrisers Hyderabad in their final league match. He is only the second player for Mumbai in the IPL with consecutive four-wicket hauls, after Munaf Patel in 2012.
32 - Runs added by LSG for their last seven partnerships, going down from 69 for 2 to 101 all out. It is the joint-fifth worst eight-wicket collapse by any team in the IPL and the worst-ever collapse in a playoff game.
81 - Mumbai's win margin against LSG is the third-biggest win by runs in the IPL playoffs. The best-ever win is of 105 runs by Royals against Daredevils in 2008, while CSK defeated Daredevils by 86 runs in the second Qualifier in 2012.
14 - Wickets for pace bowlers in the LSG-MI Eliminator. These are the second-most wickets picked by pace bowlers in an IPL game at Chepauk, behind the 15 between CSK and RCB in 2015.
