13 Century partnerships between Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy in 47 innings – the most by a pair for England in ODI cricket, surpassing 12 by the pair of Joe Root and Eoin Morgan in 75 innings. The pair added 110 for the first wicket, making it the third successive century opening stand against India in ODIs, becoming the second pair to do so after Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden in 2003.
78 Innings taken by Bairstow to reach his 11th ODI century – the fourth quickest among all batsmen in men’s ODIs behind Hashim Amla (64), Quinton de Kock (65) and Babar Azam (71). Only three players have scored more ODI centuries for England – Joe Root (16), Eoin Morgan (13) and Marcus Trescothick (12).
20 sixes hit by England in the innings is the joint-most by a team against India in an ODI, equaling South Africa’s feat at the Wankhede in 2015. There are only three ODIs where England had more hits over the rope – 25 against Afghanistan in Manchester and 24 against West Indies in St George’s, both in 2019, and 21 against Australia in Trent Bridge in 2018.
34 sixes hit in this match by the two teams combined – 20 by England and 14 by India – is the third most ever in an ODI. The most remains 46 in the ODI between West Indies and England in St George’s in 2019 followed by 38 in the Bengaluru ODI between India and Australia in 2013.

28 runs conceded by Krunal Pandya in his fifth over is the third most by an Indian bowler in an ODI. It is also the second most scored in an over by England after Dimitri Mascarenhas’ 30-run assault against Yuvraj Singh at the Oval in 2007.
9.75 Economy rate for India’s spinners – the worst ever for them in an ODI where they sent down at least 15 overs. Kuldeep Yadav conceded 84 off his ten overs, including eight sixes, which is the most by an Indian bowler in the last decade, while Krunal Pandya’s six overs leaked 72 runs.
192.50 Strike rate for Rishabh Pant in his knock of 77 off 40 balls. No Indian batsman has scored more runs at a better strike rate for India in ODIs.
5 300-plus totals for India in their last five ODIs – the second instance of them doing that in ODI cricket, the last coming in 2017. India hit 308/8, 338/9 and 302/5 in the three ODIs in Australia last year followed by 317/5 in the first ODI and 336/6 in this game.
