7 Number of times a Full-Member team had lost a T20 international by a margin of ten wickets before this. It was only the second such loss for Pakistan and the third such win for New Zealand.

171 Partnership between Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson - the highest for any wicket in T20 internationals. The previous highest was the 170-run stand between Loots Bosman and Graeme Smith against England. New Zealand's highest stand before this was the 137 that the same pair had added against Zimbabwe in 2012.

84 The highest score by a batsman in T20Is against Pakistan before Guptill's 87 not out. Shakib-Al-Hasan had made that score in the 2012 World T20, before Kusal Perera made 84 against them in Dubai in 2013-14.

1624 - Runs by Martin Guptill in T20 internationals - the second highest by any batsman. Guptill went past Tillakaratne Dilshan in this game. Guptill's fours sixes in this match took his tally of sixes in T20Is in New Zealand to 41, which are now the most in this country by any batsman.

2 Number of Pakistan batsmen who completed 1500 T20I runs in this match - both Hafeez and Akmal passed the landmark in this game. Only six batsmen have 1500 or more runs in T20Is.

2010 The last time that both openers of a team made 70-plus runs in a T20 international. On that occasion Pakistan's openers Kamran Akmal and Salman Butt had made 73 against Bangladesh in the 2010 World T20. New Zealand's innings in this match was just the fourth such instance in T20Is.
