Kohli's century tally second only to Tendulkar

Sri Lanka v India, 5th ODI, Colombo September 03, 2017

6 - Number of whitewashes by India in a series of five or more matches, and the second against Sri Lanka. Virat Kohli has led the side in three of those whitewashes, MS Dhoni in two and Gautam Gambhir in one.

1 - This was the first time Sri Lanka suffered a whitewash in a bilateral series at home. Overall, this was their third whitewash in five or more games and second this year.

100 - Stumpings for Dhoni in ODIs - the first wicketkeeper to achieve this feat. He went past Kumar Sangakkara's record of 99 stumpings to top the chart. He has 161 stumpings across all formats, which is also the highest.

30 - Centuries for Kohli in ODIs - the joint second most with Ricky Ponting. Only Sachin Tendulkar's 49 tons are more than Kohli's current tally, which have come in only 186 innings as compared to Tendulkar's 267 innings. Ponting took 349 innings for the same.

53 - Runs for which Sri Lanka lost their last seven wickets, in 11 overs. They were 185 for 3 in the 39th over and were all out for 238 in the final over. Sri Lanka averaged just 16.96 after the fifth wicket in this series with just two fifty-plus stands in 29 partnerships, whereas India had three century stands from eight partnerships for those wickets and averaged 96.25.

92.45 - Kohli's average in ODIs this year - the highest by a batsman scoring 1000-plus runs in a year. He completed 1000 runs in this innings and it is the fifth time he has surpassed that landmark in a year. Only Tendulkar (seven times) and Sourav Ganguly, Sangakkara and Ponting (six times) each have done it more times than Kohli.

281 - Kohli's average in successful chases in the past year. In 10 successful chases, he has amassed 843 runs and got out only thrice. He hit four centuries and four fifties in those 10 chases.

15 - Wickets for Jasprit Bumrah in this series - the most by any fast bowler in a bilateral series of five or fewer matches. Only Amit Mishra (18) and Rashid Khan (16) have picked more wickets in such a series, both of them being spinners.

2 - Instances of India fast bowlers picking two five-fors in any series or tournament. In this series, Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took five-wicket hauls. The only previous instance was in the 1999 World Cup - Robin Singh and Venkatesh Prasad. For both Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar, this was their maiden ODI five-fors. Including spinners, this is only the fifth such series/tournament for India with two five-fors.
