Arbit Statistics of the Day

The big event did not take place at the Wankhede today but another very rare event did take place.
R. Ashwin scored a century to follow with his Michelle becoming only the 3rd Indian ever to do so. The two prior ones being historic legends Vinoo Mankad & Polly Umrigar. (Pretty sure a five wicket haul wouldn’t have been referred to as a Michelle then, Michelle Pfeiffer not having been born :P ). Surprised to see Kapil Dev missing from that list. Full list of such happenings is here (Thank you Statsguru).
More Arbit Stats – India & West Indies batsmen have combined to score 11 50+ scores in the 2 innings between them, which is a new record for most 50+ scores. Here is the Statsguru evidence.
And also the 1st time ever all the top 6 batsman on both sides have scored a quarter century. Talk about a batting beauty.
