Beth Mooney's unbeaten 78 in Melbourne at the weekend was the highest in a women's T20 World Cup final - and the 75 her opening partner, Alyssa Healy, made was the second highest. They both beat the previous best, Hayley Matthews' 66 for West Indies against Australia in Kolkata in April 2016. The highest in a men's final is 85 not out, by Marlon Samuels for West Indies against England, again in Kolkata in April 2016; Samuels is also second, with 78 against Sri Lanka in Colombo in October 2012.
Statsguru tells me that there have now been 111 Tests with six or more scores of 50-plus but no hundreds - and the 55s of Hanuma Vihari and Tom Blundell in the recent match in Christchurch were the lowest top individual scores from those games. The previous mark was six fifties but a highest of 67, in a tense match between West Indies and Pakistan in Bridgetown in 1987-88.
South Africa and Australia both used seven bowlers in the third one-day international in Potchefstroom at the weekend - but this was some way short of the ODI record. That currently stands at 17, by Afghanistan (nine) and Canada (eight) in Sharjah in February 2010. There are also 13 cases of 16 different bowlers in the same match.
After the recent series in New Zealand, Virat Kohli had scored 5142 runs in 55 Tests as captain. That puts him in sixth place overall, not far behind New Zealand's Stephen Fleming (5156 from 80 matches) and West Indies' Clive Lloyd (5233 in 74). A little further ahead lie the Australian pair of Ricky Ponting (6542 in 77) and Allan Border (6623 in 93), but way out in front at the moment is Graeme Smith, who amassed 8659 runs in 109 Tests as captain. Kohli averages 61.21 as skipper, the highest of anyone with more than 3000 runs, with the predictable exceptions of Steve Smith (70.36) and Don Bradman (101.51).
The Test record-holder is Sri Lanka's Mahela Jayawardene, who played 27 at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo - which was also his home club. Muttiah Muralitharan played 24 Tests at the SSC, which puts him third; Alastair Cook made 26 Test appearances at Lord's. James Anderson and Stuart Broad have both played 23 Tests at Lord's so far.
