1 Wins in bilateral series for New Zealand against Australia before this one. They had won the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy of 2006-07 3-0. This was the 14th bilateral series between the two sides. Australia won eight of those and four were drawn.

36-22 New Zealand's win-loss record in ODIs under Brendon McCullum's captaincy. His win-loss ratio of 1.63 is the best for any New Zealand captain who has led in ten or more ODIs. Since he first captained New Zealand in 2009, only two others have had a better win-loss ratio among the ten who have captained in 50 or more ODIs.

4 Number of bowlers who reached 50 ODI wickets in fewer matches than Matt Henry, who did it in his 25th ODI today. For New Zealand, only Mitchell McClenaghan was faster than Henry - 23 ODIs. Henry is the joint-fifth highest, with Shane Warne. His strike rate of 24.5 is third-best among all bowlers with a minimum of 50 ODI wickets.

4 Batsmen who have hit 200 or more sixes in ODIs, with Brendon McCullum being the latest addition to this list following his three sixes in this match. McCullum finishes his ODI career with exactly 200 sixes. Among the previous three players to get there, only Shahid Afridi did it in fewer innings (195) than McCullum, who took 228 innings. Chris Gayle took 241 innings and Sanath Jayasuriya, 343.

14 Balls faced by New Zealand's last four partnerships - their lowest in any ODI innings (when balls-faced information is available). They collapsed from 237 for 6 in 43.1 overs to 246 all out in 45.3 overs. And the nine runs added by those four wickets is their joint-sixth lowest in ODIs. The last time any team lost their last four wickets in 14 or fewer balls was England against New Zealand in Cardiff in 2013.

2 Number of wickets Ish Sodhi had taken while conceding 236 runs in his previous five ODI innings. In this ODI, his 2 for 31 earned him his maiden Man-of-the-Match award in international career of 26 matches.

1 Scores of 50 or more by Martin Guptill in ODIs against Australia, before this series, in 15 innings. He had scored 305 runs at an average of 21.78. He made two scores of 50 or more in this series and his average against Australia has increased to 28.52.

3 Number of times Australia got all out for less than 200 twice in a bilateral series. Today they made 191, and they were all out for 148 in the first ODI. They had two such totals in series against Pakistan in 2002 and Sri Lanka in 2012-13, both in home conditions. However, this is the first time they have got all out twice for less than 200 while chasing in a bilateral ODI series.

3 ODIs in New Zealand where both the teams were all out, since 2000. The previous two before this were also in recent years: Pakistan and South Africa in the 2015 World Cup, and New Zealand and Zimbabwe in Dunedin in 2011-12. Overall, this was the ninth such instance in New Zealand; the first six were all before 1998.

10 Consecutive ODIs for New Zealand without getting all out when batting first in completed ODIs, before this match. The last time they were all out in the first innings was also against Australia - 183 in the final of World Cup 2015 at the MCG. The last time New Zealand were all out in a home ODI in the first innings was also in Hamilton: 248 against Sri Lanka in January 2015.
