The number of centuries scored by Rohit Sharma in Twenty20 cricket – following his unbeaten ton against England at Bristol – is now the most by an Indian batsman in this format. It was also his third in T20 internationals, thus equalling the tally of Kiwi Colin Munro. Among Indians, Suresh Raina and Virat Kohli have four centuries each in T20 cricket. For the record, Chris Gayle has the most in this format – 21 centuries! Also, Sharma is the only player from Asian with five. Two more players have hit four: Pakistan’s Kamran Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad.

England’s total at Bristol is now the highest by a side losing nine or more wickets in a T20I match while batting first.

The number of wickets claimed by Kuldeep Yadav while conceding 25 runs are now the best figures by a left-arm spinner in One-Day International cricket, bettering the effort of Murali Kartik (6/27 against Australia at Mumbai in October 2007). For the record, Yadav’s figures are also the best by a left-arm wrist spinner (left-arm chinaman) in ODIs. Aussie Brad Hogg claimed 5/32 against the West Indies at Melbourne on January 14, 2005, and 5/41 against Sri Lanka at Dambulla on February 20, 2004, before that. Interestingly, Kuldeep Yadav is the only left-arm wrist spinner to take a five-wicket haul in a T20I match, claiming 5/24 against England at Manchester in July!
