New Zealand win eight in a row at home

New Zealand won their eighth consecutive bilateral ODI series at home ESPNcricinfo Ltd

6-33 Trent Boult's figures at Seddon Park, his best in ODIs. Both his five-wicket hauls have come against Australia: Boult had taken 5 for 27 in the group match against them in the 2015 World Cup. In nine ODIs against Australia, Boult has 24 wickets at average of 18.41, the third best among 71 bowlers who have 20 or more wickets against Australia. Boult's figures are the second best for New Zealand against Australia, after Shane Bond's 6 for 23 in the 2003 World Cup.

8 Number of successive bilateral ODI series won by New Zealand at home since 2015. Only one team has had a longer sequence: South Africa won 17 consecutive bilateral series from 2002 to 2009. West Indies also won eight between 1981 and 1990. In these eight series, New Zealand won 19 ODIs and lost four.

7 Consecutive losses for Australia in completed ODIs away from home. They had lost seven in a row between September 1996 and March 1997 as well.

16 Ross Taylor's hundreds in ODIs; he drew level with Nathan Astle as the New Zealand batsman with the most centuries. The 107 in Hamilton was Taylor's 14th century at No. 4, the most at that position along with AB de Villiers.

4 ODI innings in which three of Australia's top-seven batsmen made ducks. Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell and James Faulkner were out for 0 in Hamilton. The only previous instance in the last ten years was against Sri Lanka at the Premadasa in 2011.

16 Runs conceded by Mitchell Starc in the last over of New Zealand's innings, his second most expensive in ODIs. He took wickets with the first two balls but Mitchell Santner hit two fours and a six off the last three to take the score past 280.
