7 Number of ODI centuries for David Warner in 2016 - the joint second-highest in a calendar year. Only Sachin Tendulkar, who hit nine in 1998, has more. Sourav Ganguly also scored seven centuries in 2000. However, both Tendulkar and Ganguly played more than 30 innings, compared to Warner who has only played 23 innings. This is Australia's last ODI of the year.

59.09 Percentage of Australia's runs scored by Warner in this innings - 156 out of 264 - the second highest for Australia. The highest is 60.73%, by Damien Martyn (116* out of 191) against New Zealand in Auckland in 2000. Warner's 58.44% in October in Cape Town, where he made 173 out of 296, is third on the list. Australia's total of 264 is the second lowest to include a 150-plus score, behind India's 261 against New Zealand in 1999, when Ganguly made an unbeaten 153.

595 Runs scored by Warner in his last six ODI innings - the second most in six consecutive innings. Kohli had made 617 in six innings in 2012. Kohli's scores were: 21, 133*, 108, 66, 183 and 106. Warner's scores are: 117, 6, 173, 24, 119 and 156.

7 Instances of an Australian batsman outscoring the opposition team in an ODI (in matches excluding the Associate teams). The last such instance before today was in August 2008, when both Michael Hussey (85) and Shaun Marsh (76) scored more than Bangladesh's total score (74 all out) in an ODI in Darwin. In today's game Warner scored nine more runs than New Zealand's total; the highest such difference for Australia is 38, when Matthew Hayden scored 146 and Pakisan replied with 108, in Nairobi in 2002.

1 Warner became the first Australia batsman to score centuries in consecutive ODI innings on more than one occasion. Warner 's first two centuries came in consecutive innings, in the first two finals of the 2012 CB series against Sri Lanka. Dean Jones, Geoff Marsh, Mark Waugh, Ricky Ponting, Matthew Hayden and Shane Watson did it once each for Australia.

4 Number of scores of 150 or more for Warner in ODIs - the joint second most. Only Tendulkar (five) has more such scores than Warner while Sanath Jayasuriya, Chris Gayle and Rohit Sharma also made four 150-plus scores. No other Australia batsman has more than two 150s.

2013 Last time New Zealand were whitewashed in a bilateral ODI series of three or more matches before this series. They lost to Bangladesh 3-0 then. The only other whitewash against Australia in a series of three or more matches was in 2004-05 in a five-match series at home. New Zealand averaged only 22.16 runs per wicket in this series compared to the hosts' average of 46.

299 Runs scored by Warner in this series - the most by an Australia batsman in a bilateral series of three or fewer matches and sixth for any team. He went past Watson's 294 against Bangladesh in 2011. Warner's 156-ball innings is the fourth-highest at MCG in ODIs and joint third-highest for Australia against New Zealand.

128 Balls faced by Warner for his 156 runs, the third lowest for an opener batting through a 50-over innings. Warner was run out off the final ball of the innings. The lowest is 126 balls, by Amla against Pakistan in 2010. Marvan Atapattu faced 127 against South Africa in the 2003 World Cup.
