5 Man-of-the-Match awards for Mitchell Marsh in ODIs since his debut. Only Steven Smith and Mitchell Starc have more such awards (6) in this period. His unbeaten 69 in the second ODI is his first half-century while chasing, with his previous highest score being only 17.

4 Number of fifty-plus scores for Kane Williamson in ODIs at the Westpac Stadium in Wellington, most for him at any venue. He has scores of 55, 88, 54, 9*, 33 and 60 in the six innings at this venue.

25.71 Steven Smith's batting average outside Australia in ODIs, in 29 innings including in this game. He averages 56.91 in ODIs in Australia in the same number of innings.

86* Unbeaten stand between Mitchell Marsh and John Hastings - Australia's second highest for the seventh-wicket in successful chases. Highest was the unbroken 91-run stand between James Faulkner and Adam Voges against India in Mohali in 2013-14. Hastings' 48 not out is also the second-highest in wins for Australia at No.8 while chasing; highest was Faulkner's 64 not out in the Mohali ODI of 2013-14.

0 Previous instances of a New Zealand player scoring 45 or more and taking three or more wickets in an ODI against Australia. Mitchell Santner scored unbeaten 45 and took 3 for 47 in this match. There has been only one other similar all-round performance against Australia in the last ten years - 70 and 4 for 38 by Ben Stokes at the WACA in 2013-14.

2013 Last time Australia's Nos.3, 4 and 5 were dismissed for single-digit scores in ODIs - against Sri Lanka at the Gabba. In this match, Steven Smith scored 2, George Bailey 0 and Glenn Maxwell 6. Last such instance for them outside Australia was also at this same venue, Westpac Stadium in Wellington.

7 Number of New Zealand batsmen who hit at least one six in this match - the most for them in an ODI. There have been five ODIs where six of their batsmen hit at least a six, including the first ODI of this series in Auckland.

122 Runs added by the opening pair David Warner and Usman Khawaja - Australia's joint third-highest opening stand in ODIs in New Zealand. The top two were by the same pair at the same venue - Mark Waugh and Adam Gilchrist at AMI Stadium in Christchurch.

0 Dismissals in the 90s for Warner in International matches till the last year in 206 innings. He has got out twice - 93 and 98 - in seven innings this year; both of those in ODIs. He is only the fourth Australia batsman to get out twice in the 90s in ODIs in a calendar year, and the last to achieve this feat was Mark Waugh in 1997.
