Williamson's rise and Younis pips Abbas

Younis Khan prepares to play a sweep shot AFP

1751 Runs for Kane Williamson in 2014, the most by any New Zealand batsman across formats in a calendar year. The previous record was held by Stephen Fleming who had made 1658 runs in 2004.

123 Runs made by Williamson in Abu Dhabi. He is the second New Zealand captain, after Fleming, to score an ODI hundred against Pakistan. Fleming had struck an unbeaten 115 in Christchurch in 2004.

24 Williamson's age, making him the youngest New Zealand captain to score a ton in 50-over cricket. Only four players have made an ODI century at a younger age while leading their side - Shakib Al Hasan (22), Sachin Tendulkar (23), Mohammad Ashraful (23) and Graeme Smith (24).

37 Younis Khan's age, making him the oldest Pakistan batsman to score an ODI hundred. He scored 103 during Pakistan's chase. The previous oldest was Zaheer Abbas, at 35, also against New Zealand, in 1983. Abbas also scored exactly 103 runs.

2 Number of New Zealand captains who have made a higher ODI score than Williamson. Glenn Turner made 171 not out against East Africa in the 1975 World Cup while Fleming made 134 against South Africa in 2003.

192 Runs scored by Shahid Afridi in the four games so far, the second-most for him in a bilateral ODI series. He only scored more - 211 - during a six-match series against India in 2005. If he had scored one more run in this game, it would have been the first instance of Afridi making three 50-plus scores in any 50-over series.

3 Instances that Ahmed Shehzad has been dismissed for a duck in the innings immediately following a century in ODIs. Shehzad has scored six hundreds.

5 Wickets lost by New Zealand in this ODI. There has only been one previous instance when they have lost fewer batsmen when setting a 300-plus target against a top-eight team - in 2013 when they set England360 to win.

0 Pakistan have never chased down a 300-plus target against New Zealand. There have been five instances of New Zealand setting Pakistan such a challenge, and New Zealand have won every time.

0 Instances that a 300-plus target has been successfully achieved in 264 ODIs in the United Arab Emirates.
