3 Number of times Australia have whitewashed Pakistan in an ODI series of three or more matches. Australia have now won five such ODI series while Pakistan have only won two.

1 Number of runs by which Australia won this game, their narrowest win against Pakistan. Australia have won six ODIs by this margin, India being the only team that they have beaten twice.

6 The number of times, since the beginning of 2002, that no runs have been conceded in the 50th over of an ODI innings. Apart from Glenn Maxwell in this match, the others to have done it are Allan Donald against Bangladesh, Daryl Tuffey against Pakistan, Inzamam-ul-Haq against Bangladesh, Ryan ten Doeschate against Bermuda, and Narsingh Deonarine against Zimbabwe. Andrew Hall bowled a maiden too, but gave away a leg bye against Sri Lanka in 2006.

20 In the last 20 years there have been only three instances of Australia scoring fewer than 231 runs after batting all 50 overs against Pakistan.

5 Number of times Pakistan have bowled no wides or no-balls in an innings of 40-plus overs. They bowled one wide and one no-ball in this game. The five extras that they conceded are their fourth lowest for an innings of 40-plus overs.

9 Number of runs Australia scored during the batting Powerplay, between the 36th and 40th overs. Since the latest Powerplay rule change in October 2012, this aggregate is the second lowest between the 36th and 40th overs of an innings (not necessarily the Powerplay). The fewest runs scored in this period is seven, by Kenya against Afghanistan in October 2013.

3 Number of times in the last three years that Pakistan's openers have posted back-to-back 50-plus stands against a top-eight team. All of these have been in the UAE.

42 Number of innings Shahid Afridi needed to score his first 1000 runs in ODI cricket, at an average of 25.15. In his last 42 innings, Afridi has scored 666 runs at an average of 19.02.

2 Number of times Pakistan have lost to Australia despite four of their top five batsmen making 25-plus scores. The last time they did this was in 2012, when also they lost.
