231.03 Shahid Afridi's strike-rate in his innings of 67 - the second-highest by a No. 8 batsman in ODIs in innings of 50 or more. Afridi figures in three of the top-five instances in this list.

39 Number of times New Zealand have beaten Pakistan in ODIs; they have won more matches only against India and Sri Lanka, whom they have beaten on 41 occasions each.

10 Number of times a New Zealand allrounder has hit a fifty and taken three or more wickets in an ODI, including Grant Elliott in this match. The last such instance was when Jacob Oram hit 59 and took 3 for 29 against Zimbabwe in 2012.

2004 The last time a Pakistan No. 8 scored higher in an ODI than Afridi in this innings. Before Afridi in this match, Moin Khan had hit 72 against India in Lahore. Afridi's 67 is the joint fourth-highest score by a Pakistan No. 8 in ODIs and is also the highest score by a Pakistan No. 8 against New Zealand.

177.97 Difference between Afridi's strike-rate and that of other Pakistan batsmen in this innings - the fourth-highest for an innings of fifty-plus runs in ODIs. AB de Villiers' 44-ball 149 against West Indies leads this list. On that occasion, the difference in strike-rate was 229.29 - the only instance of a batsman out-pacing the other batsmen in his team by 200 percent.


38 Fifties by Misbah-ul-Haq in ODIs; he is still to make a hundred and already holds the record for scoring the most ODI fifties without hitting a century.

13.33 Pakistan's average opening stand in their last-six ODIs, all of which have been played against New Zealand. This was Pakistan's second consecutive instance of losing their first wicket for no score in ODIs.
