The record
Ian Bell is 65th on the all-time list of ODI run-scorers but, remarkably, that is sufficient for him to be England's leading run-getter in the format. When he drove a single down the ground to move to 98, he passed Paul Collingwood's record of 5092. Bell finished on 5136, still well short of the record holders from every ICC Full Member except Bangladesh. Even Zimbabwe has three men - Andy Flower, Grant Flower and Alistair Campbell - with a higher run tally than any England player.
The hat-trick
The runs really began to flow in the ninth over of England's innings, when Moeen Ali pulled three consecutive sixes off Pat Cummins. Two cleared the rope comfortably but one had some help from Shaun Marsh, who nearly managed to catch it above his head but was carried back over the boundary by his momentum. The other three balls of the over were dots.
The anticlimax
Nearly four years Cameron White has had to wait for his comeback to ODI cricket. He last played on the tour of Bangladesh that followed the World Cup in April 2011, and already knew he was likely to be released from the squad after this one-off appearance in Hobart due to a number of absences. White walked to the crease for his first ODI innings in 1385 days, only to receive a fearsome inswinging yorker from Steven Finn second ball. All White could do was get his leg in the way, which was not enough to save him.
The synchronised sliding
If cricket doesn't work out for James Taylor and Chris Woakes perhaps they can form a dance combo. They were certainly well in sync when they chased an Aaron Finch strike towards the long-off boundary and both slid on their knees to make the save. Woakes was the one who got closest and reeled the ball in, flicking it back to Taylor behind him.
