150 The margin of victory for West Indies today, which is their largest in an ODI against Pakistan. The previous best was 133, in Sydney in 1992.

0 Times Pakistan have won when chasing a target of 280 or more in an ODI in Australia or New Zealand. They've had 11 opportunities to do so and have failed every time. The closest they came was in Wellington in 2004, when, chasing a target of 308, they lost by just four runs.

1 Pakistan's score when they lost their fourth wicket. It's the lowest score by any team for the loss of four batsmen. The previous record was 4, by Canada against Zimbabwe in Port of Spain in 2006. This is also the least runs scored by the top four batsmen ever in an ODI innings.

51 The top score in West Indies' innings of 310, which is the lowest for a 300-plus total in ODIs. The previous lowest top score in a 300-plus total was 56, when South Africa made 301 against Zimbabwe in Johannesburg in 2005.

89 Runs West Indies scored in the last six overs. The sequence was: 10, 14, 13, 13, 22, 17. They made 115 since the 40th over, making it the fifth time in this tournament already that a team has scored more than 100 in the final ten.

201.3 Andre Russell's strike rate in his last four ODI innings. He has scored 157 runs in 78 balls with 11 sixes, and been dismissed only once.

118.6 Denesh Ramdin's strike rate during his 51, off 43 balls. It's his third-fastest 50-plus score in ODIs, after his 121-ball 169 against Bangladesh last year (SR 139.6) and 52 off 43 against Australia in 2007.

701 Runs scored by Ramdin in 18 ODI innings since the beginning of 2014, the highest for West Indies during this period. He averages 43.81 and strikes at over run-a-ball. Behind his tally is Marlon Samuels with 558 runs.

2 West Indian batsmen who have retired hurt, and not returned to bat, in a World Cup game. The only previous incident before Darren Bravo's was also against Pakistan, in 1992 in Melbourne, when Brian Lara went off for 88.

1 Today was the first instance that each of West Indies' batsmen from No. 3 to No. 8 have topped 30.

18.80 Chris Gayle's average in his last 26 ODI innings, since the beginning of 2013. Among top-order batsmen (Nos. 1 to 7) who've batted at least 20 times during this period - a sample size of 65 - Gayle's average is the lowest

20.36 Younis Khan's average in his last 32 ODIs, going back to December 2011. In 31 innings during this period, he has only four scores of 50 or more.
