ESPNcricinfo Ltd

1 Tom Latham became the first New Zealand batsman to carry his bat through an ODI innings. Latham is only the tenth batsman in ODIs to do. This was Latham's sixth fifty-plus score, and his first against India, in his first match against them. He has scored four fifties in seven international innings in this tour so far. No other New Zealand batsman has made more than one.

32 Number of fifty-plus scores by Virat Kohli while chasing in day-night ODIs - the second-highest, behind Sachin Tendulkar, who had 34 such scores from 107 innings. Kohli has scored 3801 runs at an average of 69.10 in 70 innings. In day matches, Kohli averages 40.70 while chasing, crossing fifty six times in 22 innings. This was also Kohli's 38th fifty-plus score in the 92 innings in which he has chased.

5 Number of consecutive ODIs in which India had gone winless against New Zealand before this match. They lost a five-match bilateral series in New Zealand 4-0, with one match ending in a tie. At home, however, this is India's seventh straight ODI win against New Zealand. Their last loss had come in Cuttack in 2003.

1 Number of batsmen to have got their maiden fifty-plus score in their 100th ODI before Tim Southee. Incidentally, the first one to so was also a New Zealand batsman and against the same opposition: Kyle Mills had got 54 against India in in Christchurch in 2009. Southee's 55 in this match is the highest by a New Zealand batsman at No. 9 or lower, and only the fifth fifty by them.

3 Number of India players to have won the Man-of-the-Match award on debut before Hardik Pandya. The previous such instance came earlier this year when KL Rahul won the award for his unbeaten century against Zimbabwe. Mohit Sharma and Sandeep Patil are the others to have achieved this for India.

125 Runs added by New Zealand for their last three wickets - their highest in an ODI. They had added 118 for their last three wickets against India in Vadodara in 2010-11, which was their previous highest.

6 Number of lower scores at seven down from which a team has added 100 or more runs for its last hree wickets in an ODI. New Zealand were tottering at 65 for 7 in this match before adding 125 for the last three wickets. The lowest such score came in an ODI involving the same two teams, but on that occasion, India recovered from 43 for 7, only to be bowled for 164 in pursuit of 216.

6 Number of lower scores at which New Zealand have lost their seventh wicket before this match. Their lowest score at seven-down was 32, against Pakistan in Sharjah in 1986. They were eventually bowled out for 64.

3 Number of India bowlers to have taken fewer matches to complete 50 ODI wickets than Amit Mishra. Mishra, who was playing his 32nd ODI, is the quickest India spinner to the landmark, beating R Ashwin, who took 34 matches. Ajit Agarkar (23 ODIs), Mohammad Shami (29) and Irfan Pathan (31) are the bowlers to have taken fewer ODIs than Mishra.

3 Number of India bowlers to have returned better figures on debut than Hardik Pandya's 3 for 31 in this match. Noel David took 3 for 21 against West Indies in 1997, which are the best. Varun Aaron, who took 3 for 24 against England in 2011-12, and Subroto Bannerjee, who claimed 3 for 30 against West Indies in Perth in 1991-92, are the others ahead of Pandya.
