England clinched the 5-match ODI series against Pakistan 3-0 with one more game to be played as they defeated the visitors by three wickets in the Nottingham ODI. Pakistan finished with 340/7 in their 50 overs as they failed to accelerate in the middle overs despite knowing the recent history of the ground.
Jason Roy’s 89-ball 114 took England past 200 for the loss of one wicket by 28th over. However, they lost four wickets in the space of 17 deliveries and slumped to 216/5 by 31st over. But Ben Stokes stayed till the end and finished with an unbeaten 64-ball 71 to see England through the chase in the final over.
Here are all the major stats and numbers recorded in yet another high-scoring game at Trent Bridge:
A day of records:
0 – Number of teams who scored 340 and more runs in three straight ODI matches/innings before this game. Pakistan became the 1st team to post 340+ totals in three consecutive ODI matches while England became the 2nd about four hours after Pakistan’s achievement.
With England recording their 3rd consecutive 340+ total, Pakistan became the first team to lose three straight ODI matches despite posting 340 and more.
A high scoring series:
6 – Number of 340+ totals recorded in this series; the most in a bilateral ODI series surpassing five in the 2013 India-Australia 7-match series and the 2015 England-New Zealand 5-match series.
The six 340+ totals are the 3rd most in any ODI series/tournament behind the nine totals in 2015 ODI World Cup and eight of those in the 2007 World Cup.
340/7 – Only the 4th time and 2nd time while batting first that Pakistan lost an ODI where they finished with 330+. Three of those four instances came in this series as they finished with 361/7 in the 2nd ODI chasing 374 and lost while defending 358/9 in the 3rd ODI.
Pakistan lost to India in the 2004 Karachi ODI as they finished with 344/8 chasing 350. It is the only instance when Pakistan lost an ODI where they made 330+ before this series.
A record ton by Babar:
61 – Innings Babar Azam needed to score his 9th century in ODI cricket; the 3rd fewest innings any player required to score nine ODI tons. South African openers Hashim Amla (52) and Quinton de Kock (53) are the only players to have scored nine ODI centuries in fewer innings.
200 – Babar Azam’s century is the 200th in the ODI format for Pakistan. They are the 3rd country after India (280) and Australia (221) to record 200 individual ODI centuries. Incidentally, the first ever ODI century for Pakistan also was registered in Nottingham by Majid Khan in 1974.
Roy closes on Kohli:
5 – Number of hundreds Jason Roy has scored in 300+ chases in ODI cricket; the 2nd most by any player. Virat Kohli (9) is the only other player to have scored five or more centuries in 300+ ODI chases thus far. Roy went past Kumar Sangakkara’s four centuries while chasing 300+ in the ODI format.
A tough year for Pakistan:
9 – Pakistan failed to win at least one of their last ten ODI matches; their joint-longest streak without a victory in ODI cricket. Pakistan lost ten ODIs in a succession between 1987 and 1988.
9 – As many as nine individual ODI centuries have been recorded for Pakistan in 2019; all resulted in defeats. No other team had as many individual tons in ODIs coming in a losing cause in a calendar year. Zimbabwe had seven ODI centuries coming in defeats in 2015; the previous most.
