342 Runs added by Michael Lumb and Riki Wessels for the first wicket, the third-highest partnership in List A cricket and the highest in List A matches in England. They fell 30 runs short of the record stand of 372 runs, between Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels against Zimbabwe in Canberra in the 2015 World Cup. The previous highest partnership for any wicket in England was 318 shared by Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid against Sri Lanka in Taunton in the 1999 World Cup.

184 Lumb's score in this match - highest by a Nottinghamshire player in List A matches beating Paul Johnson's unbeaten 167 against Kent at Trent Bridge, back in 1993. The previous highest List A score at Trent Bridge was Graham Gooch's 171 for Essex against Notts in 1985.

His partner Ian Ward made 97, which added up to 365 runs from the openers.
6 Number of bowlers who conceded 80 or more runs in this match, which is the most in any List A match. The next best is four bowlers with 80 or more runs, which had happened a few times. In the Wanderers ODI between South Africa and Australia, six bowlers conceded 75 and above.
