A series with 2090 runs and six 300-plus totals

2090 Aggregate in the India-England series, the highest ever in an ODI series of three or fewer matches. The previous best was 1892, in the three-match Afro-Asia Cup in India in 2007.

6 Three-hundred-plus totals in the series. There have only been three bilateral ODI series in which more than six such totals have been scored, and all of them consisted of at least five matches. The highest such totals in a series is nine, in the India-Australia series in India in 2013, while the series between the same two teams in Australia in 2016 produced eight such scores.

144.09 Kedar Jadhav's strike rate in the series, the third highest by an India batsman who faced 150-plus balls in a series. The only batsmen with higher strike rates are Virender Sehwag (150.25, India in New Zealand, 2008-09) and Rohit Sharma (147.56, Sri Lanka in India, 2014-15). In this series, Jadhav was the leading run-scorer with 232, at an average of 77.33.

3 Instances of England going past 300 in this series. The only series when they went past the mark more often was in the 2015 home series against New Zealand, when they achieved the feat four times.

15 Instances of England allrounders scoring a half-century and taking three wickets in an ODI; Ben Stokes achieved it today, scoring an unbeaten 57 and picking up 3 for 63. This is only the third such instance for England since the start of 2009, and Stokes has done it twice.

34 Balls for Stokes' half-century, the second fastest for England in ODIs against India. The record stands in his name too: in the first game of the series, he reached the mark off 33 balls.

17 Innings for Virat Kohli to reach 1000 ODI runs as captain, the quickest ever to achieve this feat. He beat AB de Villiers' previous record of 18, while Kane Williamson got there in 20 innings. In 17 innings as captain, Kohli averages 69 at a strike rate of 100.77, with five hundreds and four fifties.

19 Consecutive home games for India under Kohli without a defeat, before this five-run loss in Kolkata. During this run, they won ten Tests, drew two, and won seven ODIs.

2 Instances of an India-England ODI producing a smaller margin of victory than the five runs in this game. Both those matches were won by England: by one run, in Cuttack in 1984, and by two runs in Delhi in 2002.

5-0 Win-loss record for the team batting first in the last five day-night ODIs at the Eden Gardens. The four previous results were all one-sided, though, with the team batting first winning by more than 80 runs.
