Stats - England complete third-highest chase at Lord's

All the important numbers from the first Test between England and New Zealand

277 - The target chased by England in the first Test is the third-highest successful chase by any team at Lord's. West Indies had hunted down 342 against England in 1984, while England successfully chased 282 against New Zealand in 2004.
210 - Runs scored by England after the fall of their fourth wicket. These are the ninth-most runs scored by a team in a successful run chase, after being four down. These are also the second-most runs that England have recorded after losing four wickets in their fourth innings, behind the 232 they scored from 31 for 4 in pursuit of 263 against Australia in 1902.
1 - Joe Root became the first player to reach the milestone of 10,000 runs in Test cricket within ten years of making his debut. It took Root nine years and 174 days to reach the 10,000-run mark, since first turning out for England in 2012. He is also the second England player after Alastair Cook (12,472 runs), to reach the milestone.
120* - The stand between Root and Ben Foakes is the second-highest unbroken partnership for the sixth wicket or lower during a successful fourth-innings chase in Test cricket. The highest is a sixth-wicket stand of 189 between Sri Lanka's Aravinda de Silva and Arjuna Ranatunga, against Zimbabwe in 1998.
15 - Test hundreds for Root in England, the joint-most for any batter in the country. Graham Gooch, Ian Bell, Kevin Pietersen and Alastair Cook also have 15 Test tons in England.
1 - Root's unbeaten 115 at Lord's is his maiden hundred in the fourth innings of a Test match. His previous highest score in the fourth innings was 87 against Australia, during the 2013 Adelaide Test.
3 - Players to score a century in the fourth innings of a successful run-chase at Lord's. Apart from Root's 115 in the first Test, the list includes Gordon Greenidge's 214* against England in 1984, and Nasser Hussain's 103* against New Zealand in 2004.
14.56 - The partnership average for the first four wickets in this Test, the fifth-lowest in a Test match, since 1960 (matches where the first four wickets fell in all four innings). It is also the second-lowest average in the last 20 years, behind 10.56 during the Bridgetown Test between West Indies and Sri Lanka in 2018.
