• It was the 1618th ODI in cricket history.

  • It was England's 316th and West Indies' 406th ODI.

  • It was the 61st match between these two sides. The record now reads : West Indies 32, England 26, abandoned 3.

  • PJ Franks and RR Sarwan became 158th and 101st player to represent England and West Indies in ODIs respectively.

  • Jimmy Adams, on 8, completed his 2000 runs in ODIs. He was playing his 117th match and 95th innings. He became the 11th West Indian and the 88th batsman in ODI history to reach this milestone. Only Wasim Akram (215) and Moin Khan (133) of Pakistan have taken more matches than Adams to complete 2000 runs. The accompanying table lists batsmen taking maximum matches to reach 2000 run mark :

    Player (Country)        Matches         Inns

    Wasim Akram (Pak) 215 165 Moin Khan (Pak) 133 111 Jimmy Adams (WI) 117 95 Romesh Kaluwitharana (SL) 115 111 Robin Singh (Ind) 114 94 Imran Khan (Pak) 113 96 Hasan Tillekeratne (SL) 111 96 Ijaz Ahmed (Pak) 110 96 Ian Botham (Eng) 109 100 Sanath Jayasuriya (SL) 107 99 Chris Harris (NZ) 107 95 Gus Logie (WI) 104 87 Carl Hooper (WI) 104 90 Guy Whittall (Zim) 103 100 Ravi Shastri (Ind) 102 81 Kapil Dev (Ind) 100 92

  • England's total (192) is the second lowest total in a completed innings in ODI cricket that includes an individual hundred. England's total exceeded the alltime record by just one run. Damien Martyn had scored 116 not out in Australia's total of 191 against New Zealand at Auckland on 03-03-2000. Incidentally the lowest ever total (not necessarily the completed innings) to include an individual hundred is 159 for three by England in 45.3 overs with Dennis Amiss scoring 100 against New Zealand at Swansea on 18-07-1973.

  • Stewart became the fifth Englishman to score hundred in successive innings after David Gower, Graham Gooch, Nick Knight and Graeme Hick.

  • The catch of Nasser Hussain was the 100th dismissal for Ridley Jacobs. He became the second West Indian after Jeff Dujon and the 15th keeper in the world to reach this milestone. By taking 62nd matches for his century of dismissals, Jacobs became fastest to accomplish this feat. The previous record was held by South Africa's Mark Boucher with 67 matches (Australia's Adam Gilchrist also took 67 matches to complete his 100 victims behind the stumps but he had also appeared in five matches as a specialist batsman, thus making a total of 72 matches for his 100 dismissals).

  • The victory was West Indies' first away from home in the last 14 matches. West Indies' last win on foreign soil came against Sri Lanka at Sharjah on 13-10-1999.

  • The margin of 3 runs was the third narrowest for West Indies against England. It had beaten England by 2 runs at Melbourne on 20-01-1980 and by an identical margin at Kingstown on 04-02-1981.

  • Chris Gayle won his maiden Man of the Match award.
