294 Previous highest successful chase in the Champions Trophy, by Sri Lanka against England at The Oval. England's chase of 306 is the first successful 300-plus chase in the tournament's history. 613 runs scored in the match is the third-highest match total in Champions Trophy.
1 This was the first time England chased down a target of 300-plus losing only two or fewer wickets. Their previous biggest chase in this fashion was 270 for 2 against New Zealand in Napier in 2013. Overall, this is only the fifth instance of a 300-plus target chased losing two or fewer wickets - twice by Sri Lanka, one each by India, Pakistan and England.
302 Runs added by England's second and third wicket partnerships in this match, their most in an ODI. The previous highest was 265 against India at Lord's in the 2002 NatWest final. Overall, it's the eighth instance of 300-plus runs accumulated by those two wickets for a team in an ODI.
10 Centuries for Joe Root in ODIs. He became the third player to score 10 or more hundreds for England after Marcus Trescothick (12) and Eoin Morgan (10). Root is the quickest, in terms of innings (84), and youngest among the three to the mark. Root also got to his career best score, going past his 125 against South Africa in Centurion last year.
75.50 Average partnership between Alex Hales and Root, the highest among all pairs with 750-plus runs since World Cup 2015. Overall, the Hales-Root pair stands top among 33 England pairs with 750-plus runs.
6 Century partnerships between Root and Eoin Morgan since World Cup 2015 - the most by any pair. In 19 innings, they average 63.05 and have added over 100 runs each time they passed the 50 mark. England have won five of those six matches.
166 Runs added by Tamim Iqbal and Mushfiqur Rahim for the third wicket - the biggest partnership for Bangladesh in ODIs outside Asia and their fifth highest overall. During the 2015 World Cup, Mushfiqur had shared a 141-run stand with Mahmudullah - their previous highest stand outside Asia - against the same opposition at the Adelaide Oval.
0 Number of 300-plus totals by Bangladesh against England before this game. Their previous highest was 288, in Dhaka in October 2016. This is also Bangladesh's first 300-plus total in the Champions Trophy.
1975 The last time a non-English pair had a bigger stand at The Oval than the 166 between Tamim and Mushfiqur. Australia's Rick McCosker and Alan Turner added 182 for the opening wicket against Sri Lanka in the 1975 World Cup. Pakistan's Majid Khan and Zaheer Abbas had also strung a 166-run partnership for the second wicket against West Indies in the 1979 World Cup.
5 Centuries for Tamim in 28 ODI innings since World Cup 2015. Prior to that, he had only four centuries from 140 innings. Since the 2015 World Cup, all other Bangladesh players have collectively scored only four centuries.
3 Runs made by Tamim off the first 20 balls in his innings. Thereafter, he scored at a uniform pace but slowed down while nearing his century. He took 27 balls to get from 80 to 100, hitting just one boundary. In all, he faced 142 deliveries - equalling his longest ODI innings.
5 Centuries across formats for Tamim against England - three in Tests and two in ODIs - his most against any opposition. He has three hundreds each against Pakistan and Zimbabwe. All other Bangladesh batsmen have collectively managed only three centuries across formats against England.
