1961 Last time before Anderson an England fast bowler took a ten-wicket haul in a Test at Headingley. Fred Trueman had taken 11 for 88 in the third Ashes Test in 1961. The last such haul by any fast bowler was by Australia's Terry Alderman who took 10 for 151 in the first Ashes Test of 1989. Overall, Anderson's was only the sixth ten-wicket haul by a fast bowler at Headingley.

4.5 James Anderson's bowling average in this Test - the ninth lowest in Test history for a bowler to take ten or more wickets in a match. It's also the lowest since Glenn McGrath took 10 for 27 against West Indies at the Gabba in 2000-01. Besides McGrath's there has been only one other instance in the last 50 years when a bowler has averaged lower than Anderson while taking ten or more wickets in a Test: Courtney Walsh had taken 13 for 55 (average of 4.23) in a Test in Wellington in 1994-95.

210 Runs scored totally in this match by Sri Lanka - their joint lowest in a Test that has ended in a decisive result. They had scored exactly 210 in a Test in Kandy against Pakistan in 1985-86. They had lost that match by an innings and 20 runs.

433 Balls played totally in the match by Sri Lanka - the second least in a loss for them. The lowest number of balls they have played in a Test that they have lost is 408 - against Australia at the MCG in 2012-13. In Tests since 1950, there have been only six occasions when a team has lost a Test having played fewer than 433 balls.

976 Number of balls the entire Test lasted; since 1950, this is the fourth least legal deliveries bowled in a Test that has ended in a decisive result (excluding the Centurion Test of 2000-01). A Test won by Australia against Pakistan in Sharjah in 2002-03 lasted only 883 deliveries - the least in a Test since 1950 that has ended in a decisive result.

2000 The last time before this Test a team clinched an innings win after putting up an under-300 total in its first innings. England were the team to do that on that occasions also, and on the same venue, too, against West Indies. England won that Test by an innings and 39 runs after scoring 272 in the first innings. Since 1950, this is the fourth such instance at Headingley, all of which have been won by the hosts. Overall this is the tenth such instance in Test since 1950, of which England have been the winning team on five occasions. This is also the second time Sri Lanka have been beaten in this manner. India had won against them by an innings and eight runs after posting 288 in their first innings in Chandigarh in 1990-91.

10/45 James Anderson's figures in this Test - the best by an England bowler in Tests against Sri Lanka and only the second time an England bowler has a ten-wicket haul in a match. Graeme Swann claimed 10 for 181 in a Test at P Sara Oval in 2012.

3 Number of ten-wicket hauls in Tests for Anderson. He is the first England fast bowler since Ian Botham to take three such hauls. Click here for a list of England pacemen to take three or more ten-wicket hauls.

9 Number of catches taken by Jonny Bairstow in this Test; his second such instance in the last three Tests. He took nine catches in the Johannesburg Test as well earlier this year. Overall this is only the fifth instance of an England keeper taking nine more catches in a Test. Only one wicketkeeper has hit a hundred and taken more catches than Bairstow's nine in a Test: AB de Villiers made an unbeaten 103 and took 11 catches as a keeper in a match against Pakistan in Johannesburg in 2012-13.

3 Number of fifties by Kusal Mendis in three first-class games on this tour. He had made 66 in the first innings against Essex and 65 in against Leicestershire in the tour games. This was Mendis' maiden fifty in four Tests.
