5 Tests New Zealand have won in England, out of 54. Before this match, New Zealand had lost eight of their nine most recent Tests here.

2 Test wins for New Zealand at Headingley; it's the only ground in England where they've won more than one Test. At Lord's, Trent Bridge and The Oval, they've won one Test.

199 The margin of victory, which is their second highest, in terms of runs, in a Test win. Their highest is 204, against West Indies in Barbados in 2002.

7 Runs contributed by England's No. 3, 4 and 5 batsmen: Gary Ballance made 6, Ian Bell 1, and Joe Root 0. It's the least runs made by England's Nos. 3-5 in a Test innings against New Zealand (in an innings when all three have batted).

204 Innings taken by Alastair Cook to reach 9000 Test runs, which he achieved in the second innings at Headingley. Among the 13 batsmen who are in this club, Cook is 10th in terms of innings taken to reach this landmark, but youngest in terms of age: he reached the mark 94 days before Sachin Tendulkar. Cook and Tendulkar are the only two batsmen to reach 9000 runs before turning 31.

739 Balls faced by Cook in the series, the highest for an England batsman in a series where he played two Tests. The next-best is only 619 balls.

6.87 Ian Bell's batting average in his last eight Test innings: he has scored 55 runs during this period, since getting a century in the first innings of the first Test in the West Indies. Since the beginning of the 2013-14 Ashes series in Australia, Bell averages 29.89 in 30 innings, with 13 single-digit scores.

49.82 Bell's average in England. It has slipped below 50 for the first time since the first Test of the 2011 home series against India.

6 Wickets taken by spinners in England's second innings, which equals the most that New Zealand's spinners have taken in an innings in England. The last time they took as many was at Lord's in 1973.

3 Wickets for Kane Williamson, giving him his second-best figures in a Test innings. His best is also against England - 4 for 44 in Auckland in 2013.
