15 Wickets taken by Amit Mishra in this series - the most by any bowler in a five-match ODI series against New Zealand. The previous best was 13 by Darren Gough in 2001-02 and Sunil Narine in 2012. Mishra's tally is also the second-best by an India bowler in a five-match series. The best is also by him - 18 wickets in five games against Zimbabwe in 2013. Mishra's performance in this series also won him his first Man-of-the-Series award.
23.1 Overs in which New Zealand were bowled out. It was their shortest ODI innings when they have been bowled out. It was also the third-fewest overs bowled by India to dismiss their opponents, and their fewest at home. The total of 79 was New Zealand's fifth-lowest in ODIs.
0 Series wins for New Zealand in India. They have played five bilateral series against India here and have lost all five. This was the third series they lost by a 3-2 margin; they were whitewashed in the other two.
16 Runs scored while New Zealand lost their last seven wickets. They went from 63 for 2 to 79 all out. Only once before had they lost their last seven wickets for fewer runs - 15, against Australia in Christchurch in 1989-90.
0 Bowling figures for India against New Zealand better than Mishra's 5 for 18. The previous best was Kris Srikkanth's 5 for 27, also in Visakhapatnam, back in 1988-89. This is Mishra's second five-wicket haul in ODIs and only Harbhajan Singh (three) has got more five-wicket hauls among India spinners.
99.75 Virat Kohli's average in ODIs in Visakhapatnam - he has now scored 399 runs in four matches here. Before making 65 in this match, he had made 118, 117 and 99 in his first three ODIs here. He has more runs here than at any other venue in India.
2003 The last time a New Zealand spinner had an economy rate of four or less in an ODI series while bowling 45 or more overs - Daniel Vettori in a tri-series in Sri Lanka in 2003. Mitchell Santner ended the series with an economy rate of 4.00 in this series, bowling 46 overs. He took only three wickets, though. His economy rate was the best by any bowler to bowl at least five overs in this series.
26 Wickets taken by India's spinners in this series - the most by them in any five-match series. The previous best was 24, on three occasions, the last of which was against Zimbabwe in 2003. The average of 18.53 by spinners in this series is the second-lowest in any bilateral series when they have taken 15 or more wickets.
4 Number of bilateral ODI series in which Kohli has scored 300 or more runs, which includes this series. It is the joint-most by any batsman. Rahul Dravid and Quinton de Kock have also amassed 300-plus runs in four bilateral series each. Kohli's 358 runs in this series are the third-most by any batsman in a bilateral series against New Zealand and the best for India against New Zealand.
