9 Instances of Sri Lanka fast bowlers getting a five-wicket haul in Tests in New Zealand, including Dushmantha Chameera's 5 for 47. The last such haul was Lasith Malinga's 5 for 68 in Wellington in 2006-07. This was Chameera's third five-for in first-class cricket and his maiden five-for in Tests.

1 Number of previous instances of a Sri Lanka fast bowler taking five or more wickets after being brought on as the fifth bowler, before Chameera in this innings. The first one to do it was Dhammika Prasad, who took 5 for 50 against England at Headingley in 2014. Overall it is just the 14th such instance for any team and only one other bowler, apart from Chameera and Prasad, has done it since 1994 - Stuart Broad with 5 for 37 against Australia at The Oval in 2009.

2013 The last time a New Zealand bowler took a five-wicket haul in Tests at home - Trent Boult's 6 for 40 against West Indies in Wellington. Since then New Zealand have bowled out the opposition 11 times in 14 innings. They have taken 130 wickets at an average of 28.05, with a best of 4 for 23 by Boult in the second innings of the Hamilton Test against West Indies in 2013-14. Tim Southee's 3 for 63 were the best figures for New Zealand so far in this match.

2001 The last time New Zealand had three consecutive opening partnerships of 50 or more. Matthew Bell and Mark Richardson had consecutive opening stands of 102 and 69 in Christchurch and 181 in Hamilton. Martin Guptill and Tom Latham had put on 56 and 79 in the previous Test and 81 in the first innings of this one.

2002 The last time New Zealand's second, third and fourth-wicket partnerships aggregated fewer than ten runs in an innings of a home Test - against England in Auckland. This was only the seventh instance of these wickets failing to add at least ten runs in an innings for New Zealand at home. The lowest aggregate by these wickets in any Test innings for New Zealand came against Pakistan in Faisalabad in 1990-91, when they managed only 1 run. This is only the fifth time that Sri Lanka has prevented the opposition's second, third and fourth-wicket partnerships from adding 10 runs.

1 Number of previous innings where Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor aggregated less than one run playing together. Williamson got out for 1 and Taylor bagged a duck in this innings. At the Gabba in 2011-12, both got out for ducks to James Pattinson in the second innings.

3 Ducks for Ross Taylor in Tests this year, including the one in this innings - his most in a year. He got two ducks each in 2013 and 2014. He had not got a single duck from 51 innings in his first four years in Tests, from 2007 to 2010. In the last five years, he has nine ducks in 75 innings. Taylor has six ducks at No. 4 and three at No. 5. His nine ducks equal the most ducks at No. 4 and No. 5 for New Zealand, along with Nathan Astle and Stephen Fleming. Overall, Mark Waugh's 17 ducks are the most by a batsman at these two positions.
