8 - Number of times both Indian openers were run-out in the same ODI when Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag suffered that fate at Jaipur. The previous instances are: Shastri & Srikkanth v England at Chandigarh in 1984-85, Srikkanth & Gavaskar v New Zealand at Bangalore in 1987-88, Prabhakar & Tendulkar v New Zealand at Nagpur in 1995-96, Jadeja & Tendulkar v Sri Lanka at Colombo in 1996-97, Ganguly & Dravid v South Africa at East London in 1996-97, Ganguly & Tendulkar v Sri Lanka at Colombo in 1999-00 and Ganguly & Sehwag v Sri Lanka at Bristol in 2002.

16 - Times India has scored between 290 and 299 in the first innings as they made 298 for nine off their allotted 50 overs. India equaled Sri Lanka's record of 16 such scores in the 290s over the years.

88 - Number of ODIs played by Suresh Raina without playing a single test match is the second highest after Andrew Symonds (94 ODIs) for any player to appear in most ODIs game sans experience at test level. Will he cross that unwanted mark?

306 -  Runs scored in just six matches @ 76.50 by Virat Kohli as he becomes the first Indian and also the first non-Australian player to cross 300-run aggregate in this calendar year. The other all Australian club comprises Ricky Ponting (420 runs), Cameron White (369), Michael Hussey (315) and Michael Clarke (311). Kohli enjoys the best average among all these four batsmen.
