39 Number of wickets for the pace bowlers in the Hobart Test. These are the most wickets picked up by the pace bowlers in an Ashes Test, eclipsing 38 in Leeds, 1981 and Perth, 2010. The 39 wickets are also the most for the quicks in a Test match hosted by Australia - surpassing the tally of 38 during the 1988 Melbourne Test between Australia and West Indies and during the 2010 Ashes Test in Perth.
124 England's all-out total in the chase is the fifth-lowest in the Ashes after a 50-plus opening partnership. It is also the lowest all-out total after a 50-plus stand for the first wicket in the Ashes since World War II.
15 Consecutive Tests for England in Australia without a win. It is the joint-second longest streak without a Test win for any team in Australia. New Zealand played 18 Tests between their victories in 1985 and 2011, while Sri Lanka have played 15 Tests in Australia without winning one.
10 Number of Ashes Tests lost by Joe Root as a captain. Only one other captain has had ten or more defeats in the Ashes - Archie MacLaren with 11. Eight of those ten losses for Root came in Australia, the joint-most number of Test defeats in a country for a visiting skipper. Brian Lara was the captain of West Indies in eight Test losses on South African soil.
