Stats - The IPL's biggest successful chase, and the IPL's largest stand in a losing cause

Rahul Tewatia and Sanju Samon were the heroes for Rajasthan Royals BCCI

224 - The target chased down by Rajasthan Royals, the highest in the history of the IPL. The previous record chase was also by the Royals, when they won chasing 215 against the Deccan Chargers in the inaugural edition in 2008. Overall, in T20s, only five bigger targets have been successfully chased.

86 - Runs scored by the Royals in the last five overs, the highest in a successful chase in the IPL and second-highest in all T20s. The Trinbago Knight Riders had scored 90 runs in the last five overs in their successful chase against the St Lucia Stars in the 2018 CPL. The previous highest in the IPL was 77 runs in last five overs by the Chennai Super Kings against RCB in 2012.

5 - Sixes hit by Rahul Tewatia against Sheldon Cottrell in the 18th over. Chris Gayle is the only other batsman to hit five sixes in an over in IPL. He had hit Rahul Sharma for five sixes for RCB against the Pune Warriors in 2012.

17 (23) - Tewatia's score before he began his carnage. In his first 17 balls, he played 12 dots and hit just one boundary. In his last eight balls, he hit six sixes including five in Cottrell's over. Royals needed 51 off the last three overs. When he was dismissed, they needed just two runs off the last over.

449 - Total number of runs scored in this match, which is the fourth-highest match aggregate in the IPL. The highest is 469 between the Super Kings and the Royals in Chennai in 2010.

183 - The opening partnership between KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal in the first innings, is the third-biggest opening stand in the IPL. They fell short of the record by two runs: 185 between David Warner and Jonny Bairstow against the Royal Challengers Bangalore last year. The Rahul-Agarwal stand is the second-biggest partnership in T20s to end on the losing side. The highest in defeat is 185 between Asad Pathan and Saurabh Wakaskar for Railways against Delhi in the 2015-16 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

62 - Sixes hit in just two games in Sharjah this IPL season. There were 33 sixes hit in the first game between the Royals and the Super Kings, and 29 were hit in this match. In the seven other matches so far this season played at the other two venues - Abu Dhabi and Dubai - only 55 sixes have been hit in total. The balls to six ratio at Sharjah is 7.7, whereas at the other two venues it is 30.05.

1 - This is the first instance of a team's opening bowlers both conceding 50-plus runs. Kings XI's opening bowlers - Cottrell and Mohammad Shami - conceded 52 and 53 runs respectively.
