Umar Gul (4/37) claimed four wickets in a match for fifth time in his T20 International career. With this he equalled Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis’ record of taking most four-wicket hauls in T20Is.
Gul’s figures are also the best by any bowler against India in India, obliterating his own 3/21 in the previous match at Bengaluru.
Pakistan raced to fifty in just 5.1 overs – their fastest against India. The previous fastest was in 5.3 overs at Johannesburg in 2007.
Mohammad Hafeez's 23-ball fifty is the second fastest for Pakistan in T20Is, after Umar Akmal's 21-ball fifty against Australia at Birmingham in 2010.
Hafeez's 23-ball fifty is also the second fastest by any batsman against India, after Kumar Sangakkara’s 21-ball fifty at Nagpur in 2009.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who equalled the record of most economical 4-over spell on debut in previous game, conceded 46 runs in his 4 overs!
Pakistan’s total (181/7) is their highest total batting second.
After 18 overs India were 162/3 and Pakistan were 167/4. India made 30/2, while Pakistan could score only 14/3 in last two overs!
Yuvraj Singh won his sixth man of the match award. No other Indian has won more than two.
Man-of-the-Match: Yuvraj Singh for his blistering 72-run knock off 36 balls
Man-of-the-series: Mohammad Hafeez for his two crucial back-to-back half centuries  
Brief scores: India 192/5 in 20 overs (Y Singh 72, MS Dhoni 33, A Rahane 28, U Gul 4/37) beat Pakistan 181/7 in 20 overs (M Hafeez 55, N Jamshed 41, A Dinda 3/36) by 11 runs
Yuvraj Singh: "Yesterday I was batting in the nets and I couldn't middle a single ball, so I was trying to spend time in the middle. That yorker [which hit him on the boot] reminded me of Wasim Akram but that's cricket, you got to take a few blows ... we thought 160-170 was a good total but if MS and me stayed till the end we knew we could score more."
MS Dhoni: "I think the young bowlers held their nerve nicely in those last few overs. They had to execute our plans and it was impressive how they responded. We got off to a very good start and after that it was important we carried on. Yuvraj was at his best when he scored those sixes. This format should be interesting and overall it was a good competition for both sides. I think drawing the series is a fair result." 

Mohammad Hafeez: "When bowling we didn’t follow the basics and pitched the ball too short. The partnership between Dhoni and Singh was the difference. With the bat I think the first six overs were very good but unfortunately we couldn’t score as much as we needed."
