82 Balls taken by David Warner for his century in Australia's first innings - the fastest at the SCG. Matthew Hayden's century against Zimbabwe at this ground in 2003-04 had come off 84 balls, which was the previous quickest. This is the third time Warner has scored a Test hundred at a strike rate of more than run-a-ball.
52.22 Warner's average while opening in Tests - the fourth best among openers with at least 4000 runs. Only Herbert Sutcliffe, Len Hutton and Jack Hobbs averaged better. Warner scored his 16th century as an opener. Only Hayden and Mark Taylor have scored more hundreds while opening in Tests for Australia. Justin Langer also made 16.
1999 The last time Australia failed to win the Frank Worrell Trophy, when the series was drawn 2-2. Since then, this is their eighth consecutive win. West Indies haven't won since 1992 when they took the Trophy with a 2-1 margin.
97.96 Difference in averages (runs scored per wicket lost) between the two teams in this series - the second highest in any Test series. While Australia amassed 1489 runs in the series losing only 12 wickets, West Indies lost 48 wickets and scored 1254 runs. At the top of the list is England, who averaged 145.32 runs higher than Bangladesh in a two-match series in 2005.
901 Balls bowled in the entire match - the second fewest in a Test in Australia and the fewest at the SCG. Only 656 deliveries were bowled in a Test between the hosts and South Africa at the MCG in 1932, the least in Australia.
12 Wickets taken by West Indies in the series including the two in this innings. The haul equals the third-least by any team in a series from 300 or more overs (or 1800 balls). Their previous lowest was in a two-Test series in New Zealand in 1999-00 when they took 20 wickets from 1913 balls. The fewest wickets any team has taken from at least 1800 balls in a series are the eight that New Zealand took against England at home in 1974-75.
282 West Indies' previous highest total in the series which they made in their second innings of the Boxing Day Test. Their total of 330 in this innings was their first 300-plus total in nine away innings and their highest in their last 15 away innings.
375 Runs scored by Adam Voges in this series without being dismissed even once, the second highest scored by a batsman in a series without getting out. Jacques Kallis had made 388 runs from three innings in a series against Zimbabwe in 2001. Voges was adjudged the Man of the Series.
276 Deliveries bowled by Nathan Lyon in the first innings - the fourth highest bowled by a spinner in the first innings of a Test at the SCG and the highest since Bob Holland bowled 282 balls against New Zealand in 1985. This is also the most balls bowled by a spinner in the first innings of a Test in Australia since Shane Warne sent down 53 overs in the Ashes Test of 2006 at the Adelaide Oval. Lyon took 3 for 120 from his 46 overs - his best figures in five Tests at this venue and the first time he has taken a three-wicket haul here.
14 Number of fifty-plus scores by Denesh Ramdin in away Tests, the most by a West Indies wicketkeeper in away Tests. With a 62 in first innings at the SCG, Ramdin surpassed Jeff Dujon's tally of 13 fifty-plus scores.
2 Number of batsmen before Carlos Brathwaite who had made two fifty-plus scores batting at No. 8 or lower in their first two Tests. Australia's Albert Trott, who got 205 of his 228 Test runs before being dismissed for the first time, and Sammy Carter have done it previously. Brathwaite had made 59 in the first innings at the MCG before his 69 in this innings.
246 Deliveries sent down by Kemar Roach in this series. Roach went wicket-less in this series and leaked runs at an economy of 6.02. These are the most balls bowled by a bowler to go wicket-less in a series at an economy of 6.0 or worse. This was the first time Roach failed to take a single wicket in any Test series. In the Frank Worrell Trophy in 2011-12 he had taken 19 wickets - his highest in any series.
