5 England had lost five consecutive ODIs heading into Leeds. Since 1994, England have had six losing sequences of six or more in ODIs, the longest of those being the 11 straight games that they lost in 2001. The last time this happened was in 2009, when England lost six consecutive ODIs to Australia.

63 ODIs in which Alastair Cook has captained England, an English record. The previous record of 62 ODIs as captain was held by Andrew Strauss.

2 ODI centuries scored by Joe Root, the most by an English batsman by the age of 23. David Gower and Eoin Morgan also scored as many tons. The record for the most centuries by the age of 23 is held by Virat Kohli, who had 13 tons, followed by Sachin Tendulkar, who had 11.

0 Batsmen who scored at least 200 runs in this series, the first time it has happened in a bilateral series of four or more matches between India and England. At least one batsman had collected 200 runs in the previous nine bilateral series between the two teams.

11 Hundreds scored by English batsmen while batting at No. 4 in ODIs, the fewest for a top-eight team. South Africa are second from bottom in this list - their No.4 batsmen have collectively made 20 hundreds. India and Pakistan lead the way with 29 hundreds.

87 Runs scored by Ravindra Jadeja today, the second highest ODI score in England by a player at No. 7 or below. Mohammad Kaif scored 87 as well while batting at No. 7, during the NatWest series final at Lord's in 2002. Jos Buttler's 121 in a losing cause against Sri Lanka earlier this summer is the highest ODI score by a player batting in these one of these positions in England.

7 James Anderson has dismissed Virat Kohli seven times in international cricket in the last two years. The only batsmen who have been dismissed more often by a bowler in this period are Mohammad Hafeez and Misbah-ul-Haq. Dale Steyn dismissed Hafeez ten times, while Rangana Herath removed Misbah on eight occasions.

3 Wicketkeepers run out on 49 in ODIs. The list includes two England players, Geraint Jones, who currently plays for Papua New Guinea, and now Buttler. Andy Flower was also run out on 49, against Pakistan at Sharjah in 1993.

55 Runs scored by England in the batting Powerplay, their highest score since 2011. The best Powerplay score of this series was by India - 62 in the second ODI in Cardiff.
