241 The partnership between Jonny Bairstow and Jamie Overton. It is the first-ever double-century stand for the seventh wicket for England in Test cricket. Jim Parks and Mike Smith held the previous record with a 197-run stand against West Indies in 1960. The partnership between Bairstow and Overton is also the ninth highest in Test cricket for the seventh wicket.
0 Double-hundred stands for the seventh wicket or lower that began with a team total of less than 100, before the Bairstow-Overton partnership. The previous lowest team total at which a pair began a 200-plus stand for the seventh wicket or lower was 102 for 7 when Jonathan Trott and Stuart Broad added 332 for the eighth wicket against Pakistan at Lord's in 2010.
360 England's total in the first innings at Leeds, the second-highest total by any team after losing their first six wickets for 100 or fewer runs. The highest is 391 by New Zealand in their first innings in Auckland against India in 1990, from 85 for 6.
305 Runs added by England after the fall of their sixth wicket. These are the third-most runs scored by England for the last four wickets (7-10) in a Test innings. The highest they added is 377 against West Indies in 1966 at the Oval and 344 against Pakistan in 2010 at Lord's.
3 Players to score back-to-back hundreds in less than 100 balls in Test cricket since 2001, including Bairstow (85 balls in Nottingham and 95 balls in Leeds). Shahid Afridi in 2006 against India (78 balls in Lahore and 96 balls in Faisalabad) and England's current coach Brendon McCullum in 2014 against Pakistan (78 balls in Sharjah) and Sri Lanka (74 balls in Christchurch) are the other two players to have achieved this feat.
97 Jamie Overton's score in the first innings, the highest by an England batter on Test debut while batting at No. 8 or lower. Liam Dawson's unbeaten 66 against India in the 2016 Chennai Test was the previous highest for England. Only 11 players have made a higher score than Overton on men's Test debut while batting at No.8 or lower.
144 Balls Bairstow needed to reach his 150. It was the second-fastest recorded 150 for England in Test cricket, behind Ben Stokes, off 135 balls, against South Africa in 2016.
3 150-plus scores in Test cricket for Bairstow, all while batting at No. 5 and lower. These are the joint-most 150-plus scores for England in Tests while batting at No. 5 and lower. Colin Cowdrey and Joe Root also have three such scores apiece.
5.37 Run rate of England's first innings, the third-highest for any team in a Test innings where they scored 350-plus runs. England's 5.73 against Bangladesh in 2005 is still the highest - they scored 447 for 3 in 78 overs - while New Zealand's 370 against Australia in 2016 came at 5.63 an over, when they were bowled out in 65.4 overs.
