England took a 1-0 lead in the 5-match ODI series against Pakistan by clinching the high-scoring thriller in Southampton. After the top-order produced a good start, Jos Buttler gave a perfect finish to the hosts with a 55-ball 110 while Eoin Morgan remained unbeaten on 48-ball 71. Chasing 374 to win, Fakhar Zaman struck a 106-ball 138 as Pakistan cruised to 227/1 by the 33rd over. However, the visitors failed to get going after Fakhar’s dismissal and finished with 361/7 in their 50 overs.

All the major stats and numbers created during the high-scoring England-Pakistan ODI in Southampton:

A big total in a defeat for Pakistan:

361/7 – Pakistan’s total of 361/7 is their first ever 350+ score in an ODI chase and also the first 350+ total coming in an ODI defeat. Their score of 344/8 in the 2004 Karachi ODI against India is the previous highest total in an ODI chase and also the previous biggest in a defeat in ODI cricket.

734 – The match aggregate of 734 runs is the 2nd highest in an ODI in England and the 8th highest overall. The England-New Zealand ODI hosted by The Oval in 2015 aggregated 763 runs despite only 46 overs of play in the chase.


Buttler’s massacre:

50 – The 50-ball century by Jos Buttler is the 2nd fastest ODI century for England. The fastest is recorded by Buttler only as he brought up his hundred in the 2015 Abu Dhabi ODI off 46 balls also against Pakistan.


2 – Jos Buttler is only the 2nd player after Shahid Afridi to complete centuries in 50 or fewer balls twice in ODI cricket. Five out of eight ODI hundreds by Buttler came in 70 or fewer deliveries. Only Afridi (6) has more centuries in ODIs coming in 70 or lesser balls.


A record knock from Fakhar:

138 – The 138-run knock from Fakhar Zaman is now the highest individual ODI score by a Pakistan player against England. Fakhar surpassed Ijaz Ahmed’s 137 which was scored during the 1999 Sharjah ODI.


138 – Fakhar Zaman’s 138 is the 2nd highest individual score for Pakistan in an ODI defeat. Saeed Anwar’s 140 during the 1998 Independence Cup Final against India is the highest score by a Pakistani on ODI defeat.


138 – Fakhar fell two runs short of recording the highest individual score for Pakistan in an ODI chase. Ijaz Ahmed in the 1997 Lahore ODI against India and Mohammad Hafeez in the 2011 Harare ODI against Zimbabwe scored unbeaten 139 while chasing.

This is also the highest by a Pakistan player in an unsuccessful ODI chase surpassing Harris Sohail’s 130 from the series against Australia played in UAE this year.


A game of contributions:

4 – This ODI is only the 4th in the history where the lowest score among the top four batsmen across both sides is only 35. The other three ODIs where top four of both teams scored 35 and more runs are INDI-WI Vizag ODI in 1994, NZ-ENG Napier ODI in 2008 and ENG-NZ Nottingham ODI in 2015.


9 – Number of players who scored 40 and more runs in this ODI game; the joint-most 40+ individual scores in an ODI match. IND-ENG Rajkot ODI in 2013, BAN-PAK Dhaka ODI in 2014 and IRE-SCO Dubai ODI in 2018 also had nine individual scores of 40+.


Morgan @ 50:

50 – Eoin Morgan became the first player to record fifty scores of 50 and more in ODI cricket for England. Morgan has scored 11 centuries and 29 fifties for England in ODIs thus far.


3 – The unbeaten 162-run stand between Jos Buttler and Eoin Morgan is the duo’s 3rd 150+ ODI partnership for the 4th wicket. Ross Taylor and Tom Latham is the only other ODI pair with three 150+ stands for the 4th wicket. MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina also added three 150+ stands for 4th or a lower wicket.
