1 – Yuvraj Singh is the only Indian spinner to have recorded better bowling figures than Ravichandran Ashwin in a World Cup match for India. The top two spells are both held by Yuvraj – 5/31 against Ireland in 2011 and 4/6 against Namibia in 2003.

4 – Ashwin registered career-best figures of 4/25. This is the first time that the Indian spinner has picked up 4 wickets in an ODI since making his debut in June 2010.

6 – India became the first team to pick up 6 wickets with spin at the WACA in Perth, with Ashwin accounting for 4 wickets and Jadeja for 2.
