Vincent ends World Cup drought

New Zealand finished their group-stage matches with an emphatic victory against Canada. Here are the stats highlights from the game.

  • New Zealand's 363 for 5 is their highest score in World Cups bettering the 331 for 7 they scored against Kenya in their previous match. This is also their second-highest score in all ODIs.

  • New Zealand's 363 for 5 is the fourth highest total in World Cups, and the eighth score of 350 or more.

  • Brendon McCullum's 20-ball half-century is the fastest in World Cups, bettering the 21-ball effort by Mark Boucher against Netherlands earlier in the tournament.

  • John Davison's 23-ball half-century is the third-fastest in World Cups. He is the only player to score two fifties in 25 or fewer balls in World Cup games.

  • The 142-run partnership between Lou Vincent and Stephen Fleming is the best first-wicket stand in World Cups for New Zealand, bettering the 114 runs put together by Mark Greatbatch and Rod Latham against South Africa at Auckland in 1992.

  • Lou Vincent's 101 was his first World Cup century, and the third of his career. Before this match Vincent had only made 17 runs in five previous World Cup innings.

  • New Zealand made more than 300 in consecutive games in the tournament, which provides the fifth instance of a team scoring more than 300 in successive games in World Cups.

  • Vincent's 101 and Fleming's 66 in this game provides the seventh instance of openers registering a fifty and a hundred in a World Cup match.

  • The 78-run partnership between Ashish Bagai and Ian Billcliff is the best for the third-wicket for Canada in World Cups, beating the earlier one of 37 between Davison and Ian Billcliff against New Zealand at Benoni in 2003.
