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.
