  • The first wicket partnership of 159 runs between Graeme Smith and Herschelle Gibbs was the highest in this competition since 1998. Indians Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar had put on 141 for the opening wicket against New Zealand on 15-10-2000, which was in the final of the second edition of the ICC championships at Nairobi.

  • The above partnership was also the best for South Africa against Kenya bettering the previous best of 115 runs between Gibbs and Boeta Dippenaar at Kimberley on 14-10-2001.

  • Gibbs' 116 was now the highest by a South African in this competition bettering the 113 (not out) by Jacques Kallis against Sri Lanka at Dhaka on 30-10-1998.

  • Gibbs' hundred was South Africa's first in Sri Lanka in the ten matches. The previous highest was the unbeaten 83 by Kallis against the home team on 11-7-2000 at the SSC ground at Colombo.

  • The unbeaten partnership of 22 runs between Lance Klusener and Justin Ontong was the best for South Africa against Kenya.

Obuya's feat was the tenth such instance in LOI history.
