MS Dhoni now has the most dismissals in T20Is

India carried on the momentum from their ODI series win by inflicting a huge loss on a hapless Sri Lankan unit in the first game of the three-T20I series at Cuttack. Driven by KL Rahul's assured knock at the top, and helped along by cameos from MS Dhoni and Manish Pandey, India compiled a competitive total that was eventually too much to handle for a misfiring Sri Lankan line-up, especially in the face of some tight bowling by the spinners.

Here are all the numbers from Rohit Sharma's debut T20I game as captain:

0 - No one has taken more catches in T20s than MS Dhoni and Kumar Sangakkara as wicketkeepers:

133 - Kumar Sangakkara, MS DHONI*

121 - Dinesh Karthik

115 - Kamran Akmal

1 - MS Dhoni went past AB de Villiers' record for most dismissals in T20Is, taking his tally to 74, one more than the South African.

1 - This was India's biggest win in T20Is (by runs):

93 vs SRI LANKA (Cuttack. 2017)

90 vs England (Colombo, 2012)

75 vs England (Bengaluru, 2017)

73 vs Australia (Mirpur, 2014)

2 - This was the second T20I for India at Cuttack. India were all out for 92 in their first and only previous T20I at Cuttack, against South Africa in 2015.

2 - MS Dhoni becomes the second wicket-keeper to effect 200 dismissals in T20 cricket after Kamran Akmal.

3 - Rohit Sharma now has 50 wins in T20 cricket.

Fifty wins as a captain in T20 cricket:

Shoaib Malik (50th win in 68th game)

Rohit Sharma (81st game)

MS Dhoni (86th game)

Gautam Gambhir (90th game)

Mashrafe Mortaza (92nd game)

Darren Sammy (101st game)

4 - KL Rahul became the fourth Indian to score a half-century against Sri Lanka in a T20I.

The other three are:

Gautam Gambhir - 55 (Nagpur, 2009)

Virender Sehwag - 64 (Mohali, 2009)

Shikhar Dhawan - 51 (Ranchi, 2016)

10 - This was the tenth time Angelo Mathews dismissed Rohit Sharma, the most any bowler has dismissed the Indian batsman across all formats.

India batsman dismissed most by a bowler across all formats since 2010:

10 Rohit by Angelo Mathews

8 Kohli by Graeme Swann

8 Kohli by James Anderson

18 - Yuzvendra Chahal is now the leading wicket-taker in T20Is in 2017:
