1 Number of New Zealand bowlers to get to 100 Test wickets in fewer matches than Neil Wagner, who achieved the feat in his 26th match. Richard Hadlee had achieved the milestone in 25 Tests. Wagner's current bowling partners Tim Southee and Trent Boult both got to 100 wickets in 29 matches. Wagner is the 14th New Zealand bowler to take 100 or more Test wickets.

80 Pakistan's score at the end of 50 overs - the lowest for them in Tests since 2001 (where ball-by-ball data is available). The previous-lowest for them was 83 against Sri Lanka in Sharjah in 2011-12. Their 80 in Christchurch is the sixth lowest score in 50 overs for any team since 2001.

17.91 Azhar Ali's strike rate in his 173-ball 31 - the lowest by any Pakistan opener who has faced 100 or more balls in an innings.

2002The last instance of the first-innings totals of both teams in a Test in New Zealand aggregating fewer than the 333 runs in this match: Hamilton, where India (99) and New Zealand (94) had managed only 193 runs. The first innings-aggregate in this match is the joint sixth-lowest in a Test in New Zealand.

3 Runs scored by Younis Khan in this Test - the lowest by him in any match across two innings. His previous-lowest was 5: against Australia in 2002 and New Zealand in 2014-15, both coming in Sharjah. Only one No. 4 batsman for Pakistan has aggregated fewer runs in a Test while batting in both innings - 0 by Javed Burki in Wellington in 1964-65.

3/43 Mohammad Amir's figures in the first innings - his best since his comeback in 13 innings. This is also his first three-wicket haul against New Zealand in seven innings.

2010 Last time when Pakistan were five down for less than 100 runs in both innings of a Test. They had endured this in each of the three Tests in England in 2010. Pakistan lost their fifth wicket on 88 in the first innings and on 93 in the second innings of the Christchurch Test.

0 Number of three-wicket hauls for Trent Boult in his last 11 Test innings at home. He finally managed one in the second innings of this match. His last such haul at home also came in Christchurch, against Sri Lanka in Boxing Day Test in 2014.
