South Africa's record chase, de Villiers sets the bar higher
1 Number of successful run chases of 150 or more in T20Is that have been faster than South Africa's 88-ball chase in this match. Netherlands had chased a target of 190 in 13.5 overs against Ireland in Sylhet in the qualifying round of the 2014 World T20. South Africa have three of the five quickest such chases. They had chased 169 in 15.5 overs against Zimbabwe in Bloemfontein in October 2010 and 174 against New Zealand in Hamilton in February 2012.
4 Consecutive bilateral T20I series without a win for South Africa at home, before this 2-0 win. They had last won against New Zealand by 2-1 in 2012-13. In four series before this, they had lost two and drawn as many. Overall, this was their fourth consecutive unbeaten T20I series played in any country.
0 Number of higher successful chases in T20Is losing one or no wickets than South Africa's win in this match. Only once has a team won a T20I losing one or no wickets when chasing 150-plus: New Zealand's win against Pakistan in Hamilton earlier this year when they chased down 169 without losing a wicket.
88 Runs scored by South Africa in the first six overs - the third-highest in T20Is. The top two in this list are: 91 by Netherlands against Ireland in Sylhet in 2014 and 90 by New Zealand against Scotland at The Oval in the 2009 World T20. Netherlands had to chase the target of 190 in 14.2 overs to qualify for the league stage of World T20 2014 and New Zealand's was in a seven-over game of which only two were Powerplay overs..
21 Number of balls required by AB de Villiers to complete his seventh half-century in T20Is - the fastest for South Africa. The previous record was also by him, in 23 balls against the same opposition in Chittagong in 2014. This is the second-fastest fifty against England in T20Is after Yuvraj Singh's 12-ball effort in Durban in the 2007 World T20. De Villiers' opening partner Hashim Amla also completed his half-century in 27 balls and got to his highest score in T20Is; only his second fifty in the format.
134 Runs by South Africa in the first ten overs of the innings - the second-highest in T20Is. New Zealand had made 147 against Sri Lanka in Auckland in January this year which is the highest in any T20I in the first ten overs. New Zealand had chased a target of 143 in 10 overs in that game.
18 Chris Jordan's economy in 2.4 overs - the second-worst for a bowler to bowl at least 15 balls in a T20I. He conceded seven fours and two sixes in the 16 deliveries and went wicketless. The previous worst for England was by James Anderson when he conceded 64 runs in four overs - at an economy of 16 - against Australia at the SCG in 2006-07.
14 Runs by England's last six wickets - third-lowest in T20Is. They collapsed from 157 for 3 in 16.2 overs to 171 all out in 19.4 overs. They lost seven wickets in the last four overs of the innings. Only once has a team lost more wickets in the last four overs. Australia lost eight wickets in the last four overs against Pakistan at Gros Islet in the group match in the 2010 World T20.
11 Sixes by England in this match - joint second-highest by them in a T20I. Their batsmen hit 15 sixes against New Zealand in Auckland in 2012-13. This was the fifth time they had hit 11 sixes in a T20I. England's No. 3, 4 and 5 hit 10 sixes combined - two sixes by Joe Root and four each by Eoin Morgan and Jos Buttler. Only twice have there been more sixes hit by batsmen at those three positions for a team in T20Is.
