Play 01:41
England's chase of 350 in Nottingham was the fourth-highest successful chase in ODIs

4 Number of 50-plus scores for Eoin Morgan this series, the most by an England captain in any ODI series. This is also the joint-most by any captain in ODI history during a bilateral series.

0 Number of times England had previously chased down a 300-plus target in home conditions. England's successful chase of 350 in this game was their first biggest in ODI history having only scored 300-plus in a successful chase on two previous occasions.

36 Number of balls to spare when England achieved victory in this game, the second-most in ODIs where a 350-plus target has been successfully achieved. The only instance when a team won with more balls to spare was when India achieved their target of 360 against Australia, in 2013, with 39 balls to spare.

198 Partnership runs between Morgan and Root in this game, the highest for any wicket by an England pair in ODIs against New Zealand. This is also the second-highest third-wicket stand for England against any team in ODIs.

73 Number of innings in which Kane Williamson reached 3000 ODI runs, the fastest by any New Zealand batsman, easily surpassing the previous record (90 innings) held by Martin Guptill. The world record is 57 innings, held by Hashim Amla.

21 Number of 50-plus scores during this series, the most for any five-match bilateral ODI series played in England. The most for any bilateral ODI series in England is 24, during the seven-match Natwest Series between India and England in 2007.

9 Number of century stands posted by Ross Taylor and Williamson, the joint-most for any New Zealand pair along with Nathan Astle and Stephen Fleming. However, Astle and Fleming batted together 118 times while Williamson and Taylor have only been out in the middle together on 37 occasions.

3 Number of times Williamson has scored 300-plus runs in a bilateral ODI series, the most by any New Zealand batsman and the second-most by any batsman. The only batsman to do this on four occasions is Rahul Dravid, between 1999 and 2005. Williamson has currently scored 346 runs this series.

470 Partnership runs between Taylor and Williamson this series, the most by any New Zealand pair during a bilateral series, surpassing their own record of 463 against India at home in 2014. The world record is 590 runs, between Imran Farhat and Yasir Hameed against New Zealand in 2003.

3.4 Number of innings per 50-plus score for Martin Guptill when opening the batting, the best ratio for any New Zealand opener (min. 30 innings). Guptill has 26 50-plus scores from 89 innings. He scored 53 in this game.

1585 Number of partnership runs posted by Guptill and Brendon McCullum when opening the batting, the most by any New Zealand opening pair. They went past Bruce Edgar and John Wright (1520) during their opening stand of 88 in this ODI.

7 Number of 300-plus scores this series (both teams combined), the most in any bilateral series involving either England or New Zealand, and the second-most ever in any bilateral ODI series. The only series with more such scores (9) was between Australia and India in 2013.

28 Runs scored by Mitchell Santner off the 48th over of New Zealand's innings, the second-most by any batsman in an ODI in England. The most is 30, scored by Dimitri Mascarenhas against India at The Oval in 2007.

10.3 Number of overs in which England scored their first 100 runs, their second-fastest in ODIs (since ball-by-ball data is available, i.e. 2001). Their fastest is 9.2 overs, against India in 2011, though that was a 23-overs per side game due to rain.
