23.4 - Overs in which England were bowled out against Ireland. It is their shortest Test innings ever at home, about 21% shorter than the 30 overs they lasted against West Indies at Edgbaston in 1955. Overall, this is their fifth-shortest completed innings ever in Tests. The last time they lasted fewer overs was against New Zealand in Auckland last year, when they were bowled out in 20.4 overs.

4 - Number of times England have lost 10 wickets in a session in the last three years: the three previous instances were against Bangladesh in Mirpur in 2016, against New Zealand in Auckland and against India at Trent Bridge, both in 2018.
13 - Runs conceded by Tim Murtagh in his five-wicket haul; only once has any bowler conceded fewer runs while taking five or more wickets in an innings against England: Jerome Taylor took 5 for 11 in Kingston in 2009. In England, the previous lowest was 15 runs, by Dennis Lillee at Edgbaston in 1975.
2 - Runs contributed by England's middle order (Nos. 4-7) in their total of 85. It's the joint-lowest contribution ever by their middle order, equaling their dismal show in that Auckland innings against New Zealand in 2018. In fact, there have only been five instances in Test history, of the four batsmen in the middle order scoring fewer than three runs; three of those have happened in the last 16 months.
