3 Instances of Australia losing the first two matches of a series at home. The previous instances were against New Zealand in 2008-09 and against Sri Lanka in 2010-11. Australia did not win either of those series.

1-9 Australia's win-loss record in their last 10 completed ODIs. Their only win in that period came against India in Bengaluru.

1 Number of bigger successful chases against Australia at the Gabba than the 271 by England in this game. West Indies chased 282 in 1997, which is the highest. Australia had lost only once in their previous ten ODIs at the Gabba before this loss.

83 Number of innings taken by Aaron Finch to score 10 centuries in ODIs - the least among Australia batsmen. He is the sixth Australia batsman to score 10 or more hundreds and the fastest among them. He edged past David Warner, who had reached the milestone in his 85th innings. Mark Waugh took 125 innings, Matthew Hayden 138, Ricky Ponting 149 and Adam Gilchrist 174.

4 Batsmen to have completed 10 hundreds in fewer innings than Finch's 83. The fastest is Quinton de Kock in just 55 innings followed by Hashim Amla in 57, Shikhar Dhawan 77 and Virat Kohli 80. Overall, Finch is the 50th batsman to score 10 or more centuries in ODIs.

2 Players to have scored 10 ODI hundreds without playing Tests. Apart from Finch, who has played 87 ODIs and 33 T20Is, Ireland's William Porterfield is the only other to have those many ODI centuries without playing in Tests. However, Ireland haven't played any Test cricket yet and are set to make their debut this year.

38.26 Finch's career ODI average, which is by far the lowest among all players who have scored 10 or more centuries since his debut. Apart from him, 11 others have scored as many centuries and the lowest average among them is 45.85 by de Kock. In the last 10 years, among 16 batsmen with 10 or more centuries, only Mohammad Hafeez (37.64) has a poorer average than Finch.

5 Centuries for Finch against England, in just 18 innings. He has only five hundreds against all other teams in 65 innings. He's now alongside Ponting and Mahela Jayawardene on the list of most ODI hundreds against England.

62-6 Australia's score in the last 11 overs of the innings, after being 208 for 3 in 39 overs. They could score more than six runs in only in three of the last 11 overs and finished on 270 for 9.

100 Wickets for Liam Plunkett in ODIs. He's taken 64 ODIs to get there - the third-quickest among England bowlers after Darren Gough and Stuart Broad, both taking 62 matches each. Also, he's taken just over 12 years to reach the milestone having made his debut December 2005. He has taken 55 wickets in 30 matches since June 2016, the most among England bowlers and third-most after Hasan Ali and Rashid Khan.

5- Wickets by England spinners in the first innings - the joint-most by spinners in an ODI innings at the Gabba. The last time spinners did this at Gabba was back in 2006 by Sri Lanka's and the only previous time spinners took five wickets in first innings was by South Africa in 1993-94.
