5/2 West Indies' win-loss record against England in the last 14 Tests they have played against them at home. They beat England 1-0 in 2009, drew 1-1 in 2015, and won 2-1 in 2019. It is their best record against any team at home since the start of 2006. The only other teams against whom they have won more than they have lost at home in this period are Zimbabwe (2-0), Bangladesh (4-2) and New Zealand (3-2).
4/11 England's win-loss record in Tests since the start of 2021. Their win-loss ratio of 0.363 is worse than all teams except Bangladesh (2/6) and Zimbabwe (1/4).
12.76 The average for the top seven batters in this Test. This is the lowest average for the top seven in a Test match in the last 71 years (min 20 innings). The last time the top order had a poorer average was in an Ashes Test at the Gabba in December 1950. In this Grenada Test, John Campbell's 35 was the highest by a top-order batter, which is the third-lowest top-score for them in any Test when they have played 20 or more innings.
35.77 The average for the last four batters (Nos. 8-11) in this Test. Joshua Da Silva scored a matchwinning hundred, while there were two 10th-wicket partnerships which exceeded 50. The ratio of averages of the lower order (35.77) to that of the top seven (12.76) was 2.8, which is the second-highest ever in a Test match in which the top seven have played 20 innings, and the lower order 10. The only match where the ratio was higher was in the Pakistan-Zimbabwe Test in Sheikhupura in 1996, when Wasim Akram scored an unbeaten 257 at No. 8.
9.07 The average for England's top seven in this match, the lowest since the Christchurch Test of 1984, when Richard Hadlee's New Zealand bundled the visitors out for 82 and 93. Since 1951, this is the second-lowest average for England's top seven in a Test (min 12 innings).
13 Instances of a batter scoring a century in a Test in which none of the other players passed 50. Da Silva's unbeaten 100 was the sole 50-plus score in this Test; Saqib Mahmood's 49 was the next-highest.
15 Number of times England have been out for under 150 in Tests since the start of 2019. It is easily the highest; no other team has had more than 10 such collapses.
