82 New Zealand's total in the second ODI in Cairns is their sixth lowest in this format and lowest ever in Australia. Their previous lowest total in Australia was 119 against the hosts in 1998 in Sydney. It is also their second-lowest total against Australia, behind the 74 all-out in 1982, in Wellington.
2 Australia are only the second team to win successive men's ODIs despite losing their first five wickets inside 70 runs. Australia lost their fifth wicket at 54 in this game and recovered from 44 for 5 during the first ODI. Pakistan were the first such team to achieve this, having won from 34 for 5 against Australia and from 64 for 5 against India on successive days at the Gabba in 2000.
113 Australia's winning margin in terms of runs in Cairns, which is the fourth-highest in men's ODIs for any team with a first-innings total less than 200 runs. The biggest such win is by 120 runs when South Africa defeated Zimbabwe in 2018 while defending their total of 198. Sri Lanka against India in 1986 and Zimbabwe versus Afghanistan in 2016 registered 117-run wins defending less than 200.
2005 The last instance of a spinner claiming a five-wicket haul for Australia in men's ODIs, before Adam Zampa's effort in Cairns. Andrew Symonds, who bowls both pace and spin, bowled off-spin during his 5 for 18 against Bangladesh in Manchester. Zampa's five-for is only the third by an Australian spinner at home.
0.2 Sean Abbott's economy rate during his spell of 5-4-1-2, the most economical bowling figures of 30-plus balls in men's ODIs. Phil Simmons had an economy of 0.3 against Pakistan in 1992, where he conceded only three runs in his 10 overs. Abbott is also the first Australian to bowl four or more maiden overs in a men's ODI since Shane Watson against West Indies in 2012.
28 Consecutive balls bowled by Abbott before conceding a run. Only one player has bowled more balls before conceding a run since 2001 in men's ODIs - 31 balls by Shaun Pollock against Canada in the 2003 World Cup. In the same tournament, Pollock also bowled 28 balls before conceding a run against England.
54 Australia's total for the first five wickets during their innings, their lowest total at the fall of fifth wicket in men's ODIs which they won while batting first. Their previous lowest was 62 in a 30-over game against West Indies in 1992. It is also the fifth-lowest total at the fall of the fifth wicket for Australia in an ODI that they won, with the 44 for 5 in the first ODI being the third-lowest in this list.
77 Runs added by Nos. 9, 10 and 11 for Australia in this match. Only twice have their bottom three batters scored more runs in a men's ODI - 82 runs against New Zealand in 2003 and against West Indies in 2005.
