6 The number of top-order batsmen who have been dismissed for a golden duck on most occasions in IPL cricket. AB de Villiers is the recent entrant to this dubious list, when he was dismissed off the first ball against Kolkata Knight Riders in Abu Dhabi on September 20, 2021.

80 The number of innings, KL Rahul took to reach 3000 runs in IPL cricket. He did so during his knock of 49 for the Punjab Kings against Rajasthan Royals in Dubai on September 21, 2021. He thus became he second quickest to reach this landmark — in fewest number of innings than any of the 18 batsmen in IPL history who have the distinction of going past the 3000-run mark. His current team-mate Chris Gayle, who holds this record, did so in just 75 innings.

4 The number of 100-plus opening stands between KL Rahul and Mayank Agarwal in IPL. They became the fourth opening pair to achieve this during the 120-run stand in Dubai on September 21, 2021 against Rajasthan Royals. Unfortunately, the Punjab pair had ended on the losing side on all the four occasions. This is indeed a dubious record for this pair since no other opening pairs have managed to lose the IPL match more than once (10 other pairs with a 100-plus opening stand have lost the game).

6 The number of occasions Shikhar Dhawan has now made 400-plus runs in consecutive years in the IPL. During his knock of 42 for Delhi against Hyderabad in Dubai on September 22, 2021, Dhawan became the first batsman in 2021 to aggregate 400-plus runs in IPL. By doing so, he has now become only the third batsman in IPL history to aggregate 400-plus runs in six or consecutive editions. Suresh Raina and David Warner have done it on seven consecutive occasions. Incidentally, this was the eighth occasion Shikhar Dhawan has managed to cross the 400-run mark in a single edition. Only Suresh Raina has done it more times (9) than Dhawan.
