Many records were washed away on this spectacular day in the history of IPL.
- Fastest century of T20, in just 30 balls
- Highest individual T20 score - 175 not out
- Most sixes by a batsman in T20 - 17 sixes
- Most sixes for a team- Total of 21 by RCB

Sad part for Pune warriors was their total score could not even cross the the individual score of Chris Gayle.
