5/10 The bowling figures achieved by Jasprit Bumrah for Mumbai Indians against Kolkata Knight Riders in Navi Mumbai on May 9, 2022. This is now the second best bowling performance by a Mumbai Indians bowler after the 6/12 by Alzarri Joseph (on his IPL debut) against Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 6, 2019. These are also the fifth best bowling figures in IPL cricket history and the second best by an Indian after Anil Kumble’s 5/5 for Royal Challengers Bangalore against Rajasthan Royals in Cape Town on April 18, 2009. However, Bumrah’s figures are the best by an Indian pace bowler and the second best overall in the IPL in a losing cause.

4771 The number of days (I.e. 13 years, 23 days), Ravichandran Ashwin took to register his maiden IPL fifty while playing for Rajasthan Royals against Sunrisers Hyderabad in Navi Mumbai on May 11, 2022. This is now the longest time, in terms of days, taken by an IPL batter to score a maiden IPL fifty. Previously, Ashwin’s India spin twin Ravindra Jadeja held the record of 4549 days when he made his maiden IPL fifty in October 2020, while playing for CSK. Incidentally, Ashwin also took the maximum number of matches (179) to achieve this milestone. Interestingly, in the same match, Mitchell Marsh also made his maiden fifty (89) while playing for Hyderabad. He also took over 12 years to achieve this in the IPL having made his debut way back 2010. Therefore, both Ashwin and Marsh find a place in the table below.

250 The number of wickets claimed by Jasprit Bumrah in his T20 career. He achieved this personal milestone in the IPL match for Mumbai Indians against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Wankhede Stadium on May 17, 2022. This makes him the fifth Indian bowler to do so after R. Ashwin (275), Yuzvendra Chahal (273), Piyush Chawla (270) and Amit Mishra (262) — all spinners! He therefore, becomes the first Indian paceman to achieve this landmark.

He thus became the only player in T20 cricket history to make these many runs for one team or franchise. In fact, no other player has even managed to aggregate 6000 runs for one side. He achieved this milestone at the Wankhede Stadium against Gujarat Titans on May 19, 2022. This combined aggregate of 7000-plus has come in the IPL (6592 runs) and Champions League (424 runs) while playing for RCB.
