Cape Town - 40 overs, 44 fours, 24 sixes... just some of the records set in the second T20I between South Africa and the West Indies at the Wanderers on Sunday.

68 - Number of boundaries scored in this match, the most ever in a T20. There were 44 fours and 24 sixes in the match. The previous record was 66 boundaries (43 fours, 23 sixes) by England and Australia in 2013

467 - Total runs scored in this match, the most in any T20. The previous record was 457 scored by England and Australia in 2013

236 - Runs scored by West Indies, the highest ever in a successful chase and fourth highest in a T20 (highest 260, Sri Lanka v Kenya). The 231 runs scored by South Africa is their second highest in a T20 and fifth highest by any team

119 - Runs scored by Faf du Plessis, the highest in a T20 loss. The only other hundred scored in a loss came in a T20 between, ironically, the same teams at the same venue in 2007, when Chris Gayle scored 117 runs

1 - Number of captains who had made a century in T20s prior to Du Plessis in this game. Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan scored 104 against Australia in 2011

68 - Runs conceded by Kyle Abbott, the most by any bowlerin a T20I. Abbott returned figures of 4-0-68-1. The second-most runs conceded by a bowler in T20s is 64, by James Anderson  and Sanath Jayasuriya

87 - Sixes hit by Chris Gayle in T20s - the joint-most - with New Zealand's Brendon McCullum. However, McCullum has played 70 T20I while Gayle has only played 45

8 - Number of batsmen who have scored hundreds in all three forms of international cricket. They are Du Plessis, Gayle, Dilshan, McCullum, Suresh Raina, Mahela Jayawardene, Martin Guptill and Ahmed Shehzad
