13 Number of fifty-plus scores by Eoin Morgan in just 26 innings as England's ODI captain - the most for any batsman in his first 26 innings as captain. Alastair Cook had the previous highest - 12 such scores in his first 26 innings. Viv Richards and Chris Gayle are joint third in this list with 11.

94 Morgan's tally of ODI sixes after he hit two at Headingley. Those blows took him past Andrew Flintoff to No. 1 on the list of most sixes for England.

277 With a game in hand, Morgan's run tally in this series is already the highest for an England captain in a bilateral ODI series against Australia. Andrew Strauss' 267 runs in a home series in 2009 was the previous highest. This is also the first time an England captain has made three fifty-plus scores in a bilateral series against Australia.

3 Number of times England had successfully chased targets of 300 or more out of 27 previous attempts. This was their second successful chase in 2015. They chased down a target of 350 against New Zealand at Trent Bridge in June this year. This was England's first successful chase of a target of 300 or more in six attempts against Australia.

1 Number of times before this series England have come back from a 2-0 deficit to level a series. On that occasion though, England ended up losing the fifth and the final game to concede the series to New Zealand. Teams have come back from 2-0 deficit to win a series only three only times: Bangladesh did it against Zimbabwe in 2004-05, Pakistan against India in 2005, and South Africa against Pakistan in 2003-04.

84* Partnership between John Hastings and Matthew Wade - the highest by any team for the eighth wicket against England. It beat the unbeaten 77-run stand between Brett Lee and Steven Smith at the Adelaide Oval in 2011. It was also the second highest stand for the eighth wicket in ODIs in England.

137 Runs added by Glenn Maxwell and George Bailey - the third highest for the fourth wicket when Australia have lost their first three wickets 30 or less. The highest such stand was against Sri Lanka at the SCG in 2006, when Ricky Ponting and Andrew Symonds added 237 runs for the fourth wicket after Australia were 10 for 3.

192.30 Matthew Wade's strike rate in his unbeaten 26-ball 50 - equalling the fourth best in an innings of 50 or more in England. The highest strike rate also came in this series: Mitchell Marsh's 31-ball 64 at Lord's at a strike rate 206.45. Wade's strike rate was also the fifth best by an Australia No. 7 in an innings of 50 or more.

68.18 Bailey's strike rate in his innings of 75 from 110 balls. It was the lowest among his eight innings of 50 or more against England. The other Australia batsmen scored at 111.58.
