8 Number of home Test series Australia have won against New Zealand, out of 12. They have lost one and drawn three. Since 1990, Australia have a 11-1 win-loss record in home Tests against New Zealand; in New Zealand, they are 8-2 during the same period.

7 Number of consecutive series that New Zealand hadn't lost before this one: from October 2013, they won four series and drew three before this one. Their last series defeat was in 2013 in England, when they lost 2-0.

22.18 Average runs per wicket in this Test; only three times has a Test at the Adelaide Oval produced fewer runs per wicket. The last of those three Tests was in 1993 against West Indies, when the average runs per wicket was 19.87. West Indies won that game by one run, defending a fourth-innings target of 186.

1993 The last time a Test in Adelaide didn't produce a single century - in that Test between West Indies and Australia; the highest in that game was 72, by Richie Richardson. The last ten Tests here before this one had all seen at least two hundreds, with six scored in the 2014 Test when India played Australia.

15-1 Australia's win-loss record in home Tests since the beginning of 2012; in away Tests during the same period they have an 8-13 win-loss record.

66 The highest score in this Test, which is the lowest top score in an Adelaide Test. The previous lowest was 67, in the 1951 Test against West Indies.

5-60 Trent Boult's bowling figures in the second innings, his fifth five-for in Tests and his first in Australia. In the first two Tests of this series he had combined figures of 6 for 388, at an economy rate of 4.73. In this Test, he finished with figures of 7 for 101 from 33 overs.

6-70 Josh Hazlewood's bowling figures in the second innings, his best in Tests and his third five-wicket haul. His match figures of 9 for 136 are also his best in Tests. He had never previously taken more than seven in a Test.

17.9 The average runs per wicket in the last session of the Test (after the dinner break). On the three days, teams scored 5 for 83, 5 for 94, and 4 for 74 in the final session. The average runs per wicket in the other sessions was 24.8.

592 David Warner's series aggregate, the fourth-highest in any series of three of fewer Tests. The only batsmen who have scored more are Graham Gooch (752 against India, 1990), Brian Lara (688 against Sri Lanka, 2001-02), and Mohammad Yousuf (665 against West Indies, 2006-07).

3 Number of batsmen who scored 400-plus runs in this series - Warner, Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor. There have only been two previous instances of three batsmen going past 400 in a three-Test series: in the India-Pakistan series in 2005 (Virender Sehwag, Younis Khan, Inzamam-ul-Haq), and New Zealand-Australia in 1974 (Greg Chappell, Ian Redpath, Glenn Turner).

3925 Total runs scored in the series, the second-highest out of 54 series' of three or fewer Tests in Australia. The only series with more runs was in 2008-09, when South Africa toured Australia. That series, which South Africa won 2-1, produced a grand total of 3973 runs.
