3 - Test defeats for Pakistan at the National Stadium in Karachi. Their previous two came against England in 2000 and South Africa in 2007. Pakistan have won 23 of the 45 Tests they have played at the National Stadium, while 19 ended in draws. They lost only 6.67% of the Test matches in Karachi, the lowest for any team at a venue where they played 20 or more Tests.
1 - It's the first instance of Pakistan getting whitewashed at home in a Test series of three or more matches. It is only the ninth instance of a visiting side completing a whitewash in a series of three or more Tests). The previous clean sweep by the visitors was also by England, when they defeated Sri Lanka 3-0 in 2018.
4 - Consecutive Test defeats for Pakistan at home - the first instance of them losing four successive Tests at home. Only once Pakistan have lost three home Tests on the trot - between 1956 and 1959.
18y 126d - Rehan Ahmed's age on debut, the youngest to play in a men's Test for England. Rehan became the youngest player to claim a five-wicket haul on Test debut with the five wickets in the second innings. Pat Cummins was the previous youngest when he was 18 years and 193 days old, against South Africa in 2011, where he claimed a six-wicket haul.
16 - Wickets for England spinners in the Karachi Test, the joint-most for a visiting team in a Test in Pakistan. England spinners also had 16 wickets against Pakistan in the Dhaka Test in 1962 (Dhaka was part of Pakistan then).
9 - Test wins as captain for Ben Stokes in 2022. Only seven other captains have won nine or more in a calendar year before him. Among England captains, only Michael Vaughan (10 wins in 2004) won as many or more Tests in a year than Stokes. (Tests count in the year they began)
3 - Centuries for Harry Brook in all three matches of this series. He is only the second batter to score hundreds in each game of an away series of three or more Tests. Daryl Mitchell became the first when he scored a hundred in all three matches of the England tour earlier this year.
Brook is only the second England batter to score a hundred in every game of a series of three or more Tests, after Ken Barrington against Pakistan in 1967.
5.50 - England's run rate in the series against Pakistan. No other team has had a run rate of five or more in a Test series of three or more matches. The previous highest was 4.66 by Australia in the three-match home series against West Indies in 2015-16.
