1 Higher score than Stoinis' 146 by a batsman at No. 6 or lower coming in earlier than Stoinis did: Kapil Dev's 175 against Zimbabwe. Kapil came to bat when India were 9 for 4 and helped India score 266. Stoinis started his innings when Australia were 54 for 5 and helped Australia score 280.

11 Stoinis' sixes in his 146 - the second most in an innings for Australia and joint second while chasing in an ODI. Stoinis' 11 were the most sixes by a batsman in defeat.

3 Partnerships of 50 or more in ODIs in which one batsman made no runs. Hazlewood made 0 in the stand of 54 with Stoinis for the tenth wicket at Eden Park. Kemar Roach had made 0 in a stand of 51 against India in 2013, and Romesh Kaluwitharana had made 0 in an opening stand of 70 against Pakistan in 1996.

1999 The last time a batsman at No. 7 or lower made more than 50% of the team's runs: Stoinis scored 146 out of Australia's 280. Ricardo Powell had scored 76 out of 137 for West Indies against India in Toronto. The only other such occurrence in ODIs was in 1990, when Wasim Akram made 86 out of 162 against Australia at the MCG.

90 Number of runs by which Stoinis outscored Australia's top six - the highest such difference for a No. 7 batsman in ODIs. Shaun Pollock had scored 130 to the 51 scored by the Africa XI's top six in against the Asia XI in Bangalore in 2007. The next highest is MS Dhoni, when he outscored India's top six by 52 against Pakistan in Chennai in 2013
