Shrubsole's 6 for 46: the best figures in a World Cup final

Best figures in Women's World Cup finals ESPNcricinfo Ltd

3 - Number of World Cup titles for England. They had earlier won in 1993 (beat New Zealand at Lord's) and 2009 (beat New Zealand in Sydney). This is England's fifth final, though: they had lost the first two, to Australia, in 1982 and 1988. For India, this was their second loss in a final, after their 2005 defeat to Australia. England also won the inaugural World T20 title in 2009.

6 - Wickets for Anya Shrubsole, the most by any bowler in a Women's World Cup final, and her best in ODIs. No bowler had even taken five: the previous best was 4 for 34, by England's Nicky Shaw in the 2009 final against New Zealand, while Australia's Ellyse Perry took 3 for 19 in the 2013 final against West Indies. The joint fourth-best was also in today's game: Jhulan Goswami's 3 for 23. Shrubsole's 6 for 46 is the third-best figures in any Women's World Cup game; no player had taken six in a World Cup match since 1982, when New Zealand's Jacqueline Lord took 6 for 10, also against India.

28 - Runs added by India's last six partnerships; they lost their fourth wicket at 191, after which they were bundled out for 219. Only once before have they had a worse collapse by the last six partnerships in a World Cup game: in 1982, their last six partnerships added 23 against New Zealand in Auckland. Overall, there have been five instances of their last six partnerships totalling fewer runs.

167 - The biggest target successfully chased in a World Cup final: England chased down that target against New Zealand in Sydney in 2009. In five of the nine finals, the team batting first has won the final, defending scores of 184, 195, 215, 228 (today) and 259.

2 - Players who have scored more runs in a World Cup final than Punam Raut, who made 86 today: Australia's Karen Rolton made an unbeaten 107 against India in 2005, while Belinda Clark got 91 against New Zealand in 2000. Her partnership of 95 with Harmanpreet Kaur is also the third-highest in a World Cup final.

21 Instances of Goswami taking three or more wickets in ODIs, which equals Cathryn Fitzpatrick's record. No other bowler has more than 17.

7.75 - India's average opening stand since the first game of the tournament, when Smriti Mandhana and Punam Raut added 144 against England. In their last eight games, they have aggregated 62 runs for the first wicket, with stands of 0, 7, 21, 4, 9, 10, 6 and 5. England's opening stands, on the other hand, were consistent throughout the tournament: they had six 30-plus stands, though their highest was only 59.
