England finishes their last ODI assignment prior to the World Cup at home with a 4-0 victory in the 5-match ODI series against Pakistan. After electing to bat first, England cruised to 200 for the loss of two wickets by the 27th over. Despite a poor second half, the hosts finished with 351/9 in their 50 overs. Pakistan were 6/3 into the 3rd over of the chase but there was a splendid recovery thanks to Babar Azam (80) and Sarfaraz Ahmed (97). Both the batsmen got run out as Pakistan had to settle down to 297/10 in 46.5 overs.

All the major stats and numbers recorded during the final ODI of the 5-match series hosted at the Leeds:

England creates history:

1 – England became the first team to post four consecutive 340+ totals in ODI cricket. Prior to this series, no team has scored 340+ in more than two consecutive ODI matches. Pakistan achieved this feat in three consecutive innings before missing out in the final ODI. England are also the first side with four 340+ totals in an ODI series/tournament.

3 – England posted three totals of 350+ in this ODI series; the joint-most by any team in an ODI series/tournament. India in the 2013 home series against Australia and England in the 2015 home ODI series against New Zealand posted three 350+ totals.


1424 – The 1424 runs aggregated by England in this series are the most by any team in an ODI series/tournament where they played a maximum of four innings. They surpassed India’s tally of 1275 runs during the 2009 home ODI series against Sri Lanka. India didn’t bat in the 5th and final ODI of the series as the game was called off due to an unsafe pitch in the middle of the Sri Lankan innings.


Pakistan’s worst streak:

11 – Pakistan has failed to bag at least one win in their last 11 ODI matches as they lost ten of those while another game ended without a result. This is Pakistan longest ODI streak without a win surpassing the 10-match losing streak across 1987 and 1988.


5 – Pakistan conceded 300 and more in each of their last five ODI innings to become the first such team in the history of ODI cricket. They conceded 327 to Australia in the last ODI of the 5-match series in UAE while the first ODI of this series in England was washed out after 19 overs of Pakistan innings.

New Zealand conceded 300+ in first four games of the 5-match ODI series in England; the only other instance when a team conceded 300+ in four successive ODI matches or innings.


Woakes shines for England yet again:

1 – Chris Woakes became the first player from England to claim three 5-wicket hauls in the ODI format. Seven other players have picked up two 5-fer apiece in ODIs for England. Woakes took 6/45 against Australia in the 2011 Brisbane ODI and 6/47 against Sri Lanka in the 2014 Pallekele ODI.


1 – Chris Woakes is also the first England player to bag a 5-wicket haul in ODIs against Pakistan. As many as six bowlers have taken a 5-fer against England in ODIs for Pakistan but the reverse never happened before this.


12 – Number of 4-wicket hauls for Woakes in ODI cricket; the joint 2nd most by any player for England. James Anderson has 13 4-fers in 194 matches while Darren Gough has 12 such hauls in 158 matches. Woakes got those 12 four-wicket hauls in only 88 matches.


54 – Chris Woakes conceded 54 runs despite claiming five wickets and bowling two maidens. No player before Woakes gave away 50 runs in an ODI where they picked five or more wickets and bowled two or more maiden overs.

Glenn McGrath had bowling figures of 9.3-2-49-5 during the 2000 Sydney ODI also against Pakistan; the previous most runs a bowler conceded while taking five wickets and despite bowling two maidens.


Shaheen’s nightmare:

1 – Shaheen Shah Afridi became the first bowler in the history of ODI cricket to concede 80+ runs in three consecutive ODI matches/innings. Shaheen conceded 80 and 83 runs in the 2nd and 3rd ODIs of this series and 82 in the final ODI.


4/82 – Shaheen Afridi became only the 4th player to claim a 4-wicket haul in ODI format despite conceded 80+ runs. Adil Rashid conceded 85 runs for his 5-fer in the Georgetown ODI against Windies earlier this year.

Shingirai Masakadza gave away 83 runs for a 4-wicket haul against South Africa during the 2010 Bloemfontein ODI while Stuart Broad was taken for 81 runs by Pakistan when he picked up a 4-fer in the 2010 ODI also played in Leeds.


A rescue act:

6/3 – Babar Azam and Sarfaraz Ahmed put on a 146-run stand after Pakistan were three down for six runs. The total of 6/3 is the 4th lowest from which any pair put on a century stand for the 4th wicket in ODIs. This is also the first time Pakistan had a 100-run partnership for the 4th wicket after they lost their first three wickets inside 15.


146 – The partnership of 146 runs between Babar and Sarfaraz is the 2nd highest 4th wicket stand in ODI cricket after a team lost first three wickets under ten. Allan Border and Kim Hughes put on 150 from 8/3 against the Windies in the 1984 Castries ODI.
