405 Australia's margin of victory in this game, their third biggest in an Ashes Test, in terms of runs. This is also the ninth-biggest win for any team in Test history, with Australia holding five of the top nine spots.

81 Years since an Australia batsman has made a 200-plus score and a 50-plus score in the same Ashes Test. Steven Smith scored 215 runs in the first innings and 58 in the second. The last Australia batsman to do this was Don Bradman at The Oval in 1934.

0 Wickets taken by James Anderson this Test, the first time he has gone wicketless in a Test match at Lord's (18 Tests). This is also the first time that he has gone wicketless in the last 60 Tests. He was wicketless in three out of six Tests before this streak.

7 Number of catches taken by Peter Nevill in this Test, the joint-most in Test history for any keeper on Test debut. Brian Taber is the only other Australian to do this, against South Africa in 1966.
