6.33 - England's run rate during their total of 524 against Ireland. It is the second-highest run rate in a total of 500-plus runs in Test cricket, behind the 6.5, also by England, achieved against Pakistan last December during their 657 all-out in Rawalpindi. No other team has ever scored 400-plus runs in a Test innings at run-a-ball.
207 - Number of balls Ollie Pope needed to bring up his double century. It is the fastest recorded double ton in Test cricket in England, breaking Ian Botham's record, which came off 220 balls against India in 1982 at The Oval.
11004 - Runs scored by Joe Root in Test cricket. He is now only the eleventh player to reach the 11000-run milestone and the second for England, after Alastair Cook (12742 runs). It took Root ten years and 171 days from his debut to get there, bettering Cook in the process, who needed ten years and 290 days from the debut.
1 - Number of Test double centuries for England to have come quicker than Pope in 207 balls. The fastest is by Ben Stokes, who needed only 163 balls to reach his 200 against South Africa in 2016. Pope's double century is also the seventh fastest ever recorded in the history of Test cricket.
5 - Number of instances where England had a century partnership for each of their first three wickets in a Test innings, including their first innings at Lord's. It is also the first such instance for them since January 1985, when they did it against India in Chennai.
150 - Balls needed for Ben Duckett to complete his 150. It is the fastest individual 150 in Test cricket at Lord's. The previous quickest was by Don Bradman, who took 166 balls for his 150 against the hosts in 1930. Pope equalled Bradman's feat with his 166-ball 150.
1 - Previous instance of an England batter reaching his double century with a six, before Pope at Lord's. Root achieved this feat when he struck a six, when batting on 196 against India in his 100th Test match.
252 - Partnership runs between Duckett and Pope for the second wicket. It is the first double-century stand in Tests at Lord's since 2015, and the first for England here since 2010. Duckett and Pope's partnership is also the 13th highest for any wicket in Tests at this venue.
