# Ashwin's impressive figures are the third best by an Indian bowler in ODIs at Perth. Ravi Shastri had captured five for 15 vs Australia on December 8, 1991 and Irfan Pathan – 4 for 24 vs Zimbabwe on February 3, 2004.

# Ashwin's superb figures are the third best by an Indian spinner in World Cups.  Yuvraj Singh is the only Indian spinner to capture five wickets in an innings - 5 for 31 vs Ireland at Bangalore on March 6, 2011, followed by 4 for six vs Namibia at Pietermaritzburg on February 23, 2003.

# Ashwin's figures are the best by an Indian bowler in ODIs vs UAE, bettering Sachin Tendulkar's figures of three for 21 at Dambulla on July 16, 2004.

# Ashwin has got the Man of the Match award for the first time in World Cups - his third in ODIs.
