Stats - Islamabad United's record total in one of the highest scoring T20s ever

All the statistical highlights from a match that set several new benchmarks in the PSL

247 for 2 Islamabad United's total against Peshawar Zalmi, the highest by any team in the Pakistan Super League. United already held the record, having piled up 238 for three against Lahore Qalandars in 2019. Zalmi's 232 for 6 in the chase stands at third in the highest PSL totals.
479 Runs aggregated by United and Zalmi in this match, 52 runs more than any other game in the history of the PSL. United and Lahore Qalandars had collectively scored 427 runs at Karachi in 2019, the previous highest aggregate in a PSL match.
1 Usman Khawaja, with his 105*, became the first captain to score a century in the history of the PSL. Mohammad Rizwan's 82* at the start of the week, also against Zalmi, was the previous highest individual score by a captain in the PSL.
0 Totals higher than United's 247 by a team hailing from Pakistan in the Twenty20 format. The previous highest T20 total from a Pakistan team was 243 for 2 by Karachi Dolphins against Lahore Eagles in 2010. United's total is also the highest by any team in T20 matches hosted in the UAE.
5 T20 matches with an aggregate higher than the 479 runs scored in the United-Zalmi match. Alll five were played outside Asia. The previous highest match aggregate in the T20s in Asia was 472 runs during the T20I between Afghanistan and Ireland in 2019 in Dehradun.
3 Number of players to score a century for Islamabad United in the PSL. Sharjeel Khan (117 vs Zalmi) in 2016 and Cameron Delport (117* vs Qalandars) in 2019 struck tons for the franchise before Khawaja's unbeaten 105. Among the ten hundreds scored in the PSL so far, this is the first one that has taken place in Abu Dhabi.
65 Runs conceded by Zafar Gohar in his four overs, the most by any bowler in a PSL match. He broke the record held by Shaheen Shah Afridi for giving away 62 runs against United in 2019.
