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.
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.
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.
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.
