Stats Highlights – 2nd Semi-Final, India v West Indies
8 times the West Indies have now qualified for the final of an ICC Tournament. They stand joint 3rd with Sri Lanka for most qualifications to the finals. Last time the West Indies qualified for any final of an ICC Tournament was the 2012 edition of World T20 in Sri Lanka where they defeated the host.
5th Semi-Final loss for India in an ICC Tournament out of 13 qualifications. India did not lose a single Semi-Final in the period from 2000 to 2014. This is a consecutive Semi-Final loss for India after 2015 Cricket World Cup to Australia at Sydney.
3rd highest successful run chase in World T20s, after the West Indies chased down India’s target of 193 with four balls to spare. Two of the top three successful run chases in the World T20s have come in this edition, and incidentally both at the Wankhede. Earlier England had chased down 230 against South Africa and West Indies chased down 183 against England, at the Wankhede, where Chris Gayle scored his second T20I hundred and fastest in World T20s.
192 runs by India against the West Indies is the second highest score by India in a losing cause. Earlier this year India scored 199 against South Africa at Dharamsala and failed to defend it.
82* is the career best score for Lendl Simmons in T20 Internationals. This was his fifth half century in T20Is and second highest individual score by a West Indies batsman against India. Chris Gayle’s 98 is the highest by any West Indies batsman against India.
625 runs in 2016 by Virat Kohli in T20Is. He currently holds the record for Most Runs in a calendar year in T20Is. His 625 runs have come in 12 innings at an average of 125 with seven fifties. No other batsman has ever scored more than 500 runs in a calendar year before him.
89* runs in 47 balls by Virat Kohli is the second highest Individual score in a Semi-Final or Final of the World T20s. Lendl Simmons who scored 82* in 51 balls in the same match is 3rd in the list.
