T20 League: Statistics that matter

The greatest team in T20 cricket, Chennai Super Kings, has taken the lead again, and shows no signs of slowing down. The others, led by the Rajasthan Royals, are playing ‘catch up’, while a bunch of cricketers are racking up some seriously catchy statistics in this tournament. 
Here’s a sample:

4: Number of fifties scored by Sunrisers Captain David Warner
4: Age of batsman Sarfaraz Khan when highest wicket-taker Ashish Nehra took 6/23 against England in the 2003 World Cup. 

18: Number of sixes hit by CSK opener Brendon McCullum so far
19: Number of runs saved per game by CSK’s athletic fielding 
20: Number of singles per game Gayle refuses to take when at the crease. 
21: Number of times AB de Villiers will get run out again before commentators declare that he is a bad judge of a run instead of declaring him too quick on his feet. 

43: Age of ace spinner Brad Hogg, playing for KKR
26: Age difference between Hogg and Sarfaraz, oldest and youngest players in the league.
26: Age of RCB Captain Virat Kohli

20: Probability, in percentage, of Mumbai Indians once again overcoming their loss-win deficit to reach the knockouts. 
20: Number of bookies, in thousands, not willing to bet on it. 
20: Age of ‘find of the year’ Shreyas Iyer

10: Number of all-star players Mumbai Indians have let go over the years including Maxwell, Johnson, Bravo, Smith…
5: Number of Mumbai youngsters ignored by Mumbai Indians’ famous thinktank in the auction including Sarfaraz, Shreyas…
6: Probable finish position for Mumbai Indians this year

10: Number of wickets taken by Anureet Singh for Kings XI Punjab, one more than star bowler Sandeep Sharma
8: Probable position at which they will finish, considering the bad form of Marsh, Saha, Maxwell and Sehwag at the top.
