482 Runs by Daryl Mitchell in this series so far, the highest for any New Zealand batter in a Test series against England. Martin Donnelly's 462 runs were the previous highest during a four-match series in England in 1949.
1 Number of New Zealand players with more runs while batting at No.5 and lower in a Test series than Mitchell's 482 runs. Brendon McCullum amassed 535 runs in the two-match series against India in 2014, including a triple century and a double ton.
5 Number of visiting players before Mitchell to score hundreds in three or more consecutive Tests in England. The last of the previous five batters was Rahul Dravid during India's tour of England in 2002. Mitchell is also the first New Zealand batter to score hundreds in three successive Tests in England.
1 Mitchell became the first batter to score hundreds in each match of an away series of three or more Tests. Eight players before him scored centuries in every game of a series of three or more Tests, all for the home team.
611 Partnership runs between Mitchell and Tom Blundell in this series, the most by a New Zealand pair in a Test series. They surpassed the tally of 552 runs by Martin Crowe and Andrew Jones in the 1991 home series against Sri Lanka.
Mitchell and Blundell are only the second New Zealand pair with three century stands in the same series. Andrew Jones shared three 100-run stands with Shane Thomson in the 1991 series against Sri Lanka.
989 Partnership runs for the fifth and lower wickets in this Test series for New Zealand, involving Mitchell. Only two batters involved in more partnership runs in a Test series for the fifth and lower wickets - 1328 runs by Shivnarine Chanderpaul against India in 2002 and 1225 runs by Gary Sobers against England in 1966.
