5136 Ian Bell's career runs in ODIs, the most for any England batsman. He went past the 5000-run mark today, becoming only the second English player to reach this landmark after Paul Collingwood (5092), and then went on to surpass Collingwood's tally later in his innings.
4 Number of ODI hundreds scored by Bell. Out of the 70 batsmen who have scored 5000-plus ODI runs, only six have made fewer hundreds than Bell - Hansie Cronje (2), Jonty Rhodes (2), Abdul Razzak (3), Allan Border (3), Michael Hussey (3) and Steve Waugh (3).
1 Number of players to have scored a century on captaincy debut in both Tests and ODIs; Steven Smith is the only one. He is the seventh player to do this in ODIs after Glenn Turner, Richie Richardson, Sachin Tendulkar, Sanath Jayasuriya, Gavin Hamilton and Michael Hussey.
141 Runs scored by Bell in this ODI, his highest score in ODIs and the eighth-highest by any batsman for England. Bell's previous highest score in ODIs was 126, which he had achieved twice.
48 Innings since England's openers last posted a 100-plus partnership. Moeen Ali and Bell shared a 113-run opening stand in this game. The last such stand was between Alastair Cook and Bell against India in January 2013. Since January 2013, New Zealand are the only top-eight team with fewer 100-plus opening stands, one, as opposed to England's two.
69 Runs scored by England in the Powerplay, their third-highest score in the first 10 overs of an ODI against Australia since 2001. The most runs that they have made against Australia in this period is 73, in Perth in 2014.
4 Number of Australians playing this ODI who are not part of the World Cup squad - Shaun Marsh, Cameron White, Gurinder Sandhu and Moises Henriques.
304 International matches in which James Anderson has represented England, more than any other player. He has played 99 Tests, 186 ODIs and 19 T20Is. Anderson went past Alec Stewart, who played 303 matches for England (133 Tests and 170 ODIs).
25 Steven Smith's age (25 years and 235 days), making him the second youngest player to captain Australia in ODIs. Kim Hughes was the youngest player to do this, at the age of 25 years and 134 days, against England at Lord's in 1979.
303 The score posted by England, making it only the third instance in 32 ODIs at Hobart, that a team has posted 300-plus runs when batting first. The team batting second has successfully chased down the total on two of these three occasions.
1 Number of Australian venues where there have been two instances of teams successfully chasing down a 300-plus score; Hobart is the only one. There has been one such chase each at Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane.
