5 Number of consecutive ODIs England have now lost at the Ageas Bowl. The last time they won here was in 2012 against West Indies. This was also their fourth consecutive loss while chasing at this venue. The last time they won chasing here was against India in 2011, when they successfully chased down a target of 188 in 23 overs in a rain-affected game.

0 Number of times spinners had taken a four-wicket haul at the Ageas Bowl before Adil Rashid's 4 for 59 in this ODI. The previous best by a spinner at this ground was Graeme Swann's 3 for 26 against Pakistan in 2010.

71* Runs by Matthew Wade in this match - equalling the highest score by an Australia No. 7 against England in ODIs. Two other Australia batsmen - Simon O' Donnell and Brad Hogg - have scored an unbeaten 71 batting at No. 7 against England. It also equals the second-highest score by a No. 7 batsman in ODIs between Australia and England. Jos Buttler's 75 at Old Trafford in 2013 is the highest. As many as five different batsmen have scored exactly 71 batting at No. 7 in ODIs between Australia and England.

142.00 Wade's strike rate in his innings of 71 - the third best by a No. 7 batsman to score 50 or more runs in an ODI in England. Andrew Flintoff's strike rate of 178.57 in a 28-ball 50 - against Sri Lanka at Trent Bridge in 2002 - is the highest strike rate in an ODI innings by a No. 7 batsman in England.

2 Number of century stands for the seventh wicket in ODIs in England before the one between Wade and Mitchell Marsh in this match. The partnership in this match was the third highest ever for the seventh wicket in ODIs in England. The highest such stand also came this year - a 177-run partnership between Buttler and Rashid against New Zealand at Edgbaston.

0 Century partnerships for Australia's seventh wicket against England in ODIs before this match. The most Australia had added for the seventh wicket against England in ODIs was 95, which was by the stand between Ian Healy and Steve Waugh at the MCG in 1991.

40* Runs made by Marsh batting at No. 8 - equalling the second highest at the Ageas Bowl in ODIs and the highest since Kenya's Brijal Patel made against India here in the 2004 Champions Trophy. Heath Streak's unbeaten 50 against South Africa in 2003 is the highest by a No. 8 at this venue.

1 Number of Man-of-the-Match awards won by Wade in 48 ODIs before this match. The last time before this he had won this award was in 2012, against India at the MCG.

70 England's opening partnership in this match - their highest in 13 ODIs at this ground. The previous highest was a 67-run stand between Alastair Cook and Craig Kieswetter against India in 2011.

72 Runs conceded by Mark Wood in this match - equalling the third most by a bowler at this venue in ODIs. Rashid had also conceded exactly 72 runs in an ODI against New Zealand here earlier this year. Jade Dernbach had conceded 87 against New Zealand in 2013 which are the most by any bowler at this venue. This is also the most Wood has conceded in an ODI.

7 Number of fifties in 12 international innings on the current tour by David Warner including the one he made in this match. Warner has made a fifty in all but one of the eight matches he has played on this tour: he fell for 4 in the T20I in Cardiff. Warner has made 565 runs at an average of 47.08 on this tour.

8 Wickets lost by both the teams in the seven-over period between the 31st over and the 37th over. Australia lost four wickets for 38 runs during these overs, and England returned the favour losing four for 35. The eight wickets lost equals the most in an ODI in these overs since 2001. While Australia recovered from this period through the stand between Wade and Marsh, England failed to put up a rearguard effort.
