Team India’s winning streak in the World Cup 2019 finally came to an end as they went down by 31 runs against England on Sunday. An aggressive ton from Jonny Bairstow of 111 from 109 paved the way for a strong finish. England ended up with 337/7 as Ben Stokes (79 off 54) and Jason Roy (66 from 57) also scored fifties. Rohit Sharma (102) and Virat Kohli (66) struggled to get going early on but bailed their team out of trouble. Both the batsmen got out at crucial junctures that didn’t allow the Indian team to maintain the momentum.

All the statistical highlights from India’s first defeat in World Cup 2019:

India’s streak ends while England’s continues:

5 – England halted India’s 5-match winning streak in ODI cricket in Birmingham. India won all the five matches they played here since the start of 2013.


10 – England has won each of their last ten International matches at Edgbaston. Since their 9-wicket defeat to India in 2014, the English team has won 4 Tests, 4 ODIs and 2 T20Is they played here.


1992 – Last time England defeated India in a World Cup game was in the 1992 edition by 9 runs at WACA. India won the 1999 and 2003 tournament games while defending a target. The 2011 edition game ended in a Tie as both teams finished on 338.


A first for India:

306/5 – The total of 306/5 is India’s first-ever 300+ total during a World Cup chase. India’s previous highest total in a CWC chase was 288/4 against Zimbabwe in the 2015 edition while chasing 288.


A record opening stand:

1 – Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow became the first pair to share two-century partnerships for England in the World Cup. The duo had a 128-run stand for the opening wicket against Bangladesh in Cardiff earlier in the tournament.


160 – The partnership of 160 between Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow is the 2nd highest opening stand for England in a World Cup game. Moeen Ali and Ian Bell shared 172 for the first wicket against Scotland in the 2015 edition.

This is also the first ever 150+ opening partnership by any pair against India in the World Cup. Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes added 138 for the first wicket during the 1979 edition also in Birmingham.


A record hundred by Rohit:

1 – Rohit Sharma is the first Indian to score two centuries while chasing in the World Cup. His 102 is also the highest individual score in an unsuccessful chase in World Cup for India.

Kohli levels Smith:

5 – Virat Kohli became the second player with five consecutive fifty-plus scores in the World Cup. Steve Smith achieved this feat by scoring 50+ in Australia’s last five games in the 2015 edition. Kohli is also the first captain with five successive fifty-plus scores in CWC.


The Rohit-Kohli combo comes to the rescue:

17 – Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli pair now has 17-century stands in ODI cricket; the 3rd most by any pair in this format. Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar pair put together 26 100-run partnerships while Tillakaratne Dilshan and Kumar Sangakkara have 20 of those in ODIs. However, this was the first century partnership by Rohit-Kohli pair in the World Cup.


Shami matches Afridi:

2 – Mohammed Shami become the second player to claim 4-fers in three consecutive matches in the World Cup. Shahid Afridi also had 4-fers in three straight matches during the 2011 edition.


A tournament of centurions for England:

5 – Number of players who scored at least one century for England in this tournament; the joint-most number of centurions for any team in a World Cup. South Africa also had five different centurions during the 2015 edition.


A costly 5-fer:

5/69 – Mohammed Shami’s 5-wicket haul is the most expensive 5-fer in ODI cricket for India. Irfan Pathan conceded 61 runs for his 5-fer against Sri Lanka in his final ODI match in 2012.


5/69 – Shami’s 5-fer in this match is now the 2nd most expensive 5-wicket haul in a World Cup game. Only Steve Finn (5/71) conceded more runs during a 5-wicket haul at the CWC.


A tough day for Chahal:

88 – Runs Yuzvendra Chahal conceded in his ten overs; the most by an Indian bowler in a World Cup game. Javagal Srinath gave away 87 runs in the 2003 CWC final against Australia.


88 – The 88 runs conceded by Chahal are also the most in an ODI by an Indian spinner. Piyush Chawla conceded 85 runs in the 2008 Tri-Series final against Pakistan.


Kohli and Dhoni top charts:

1255 – Virat Kohli has 1255 runs in England in the ODI format; the most among Indians. He went past Rahul Dravid’s tally of 1238 runs with his fifty in this match.

1546 – MS Dhoni now has the most number of runs in India-England ODI matches. The keeper-batsman surpassed Yuvraj Singh’s 1523 runs against England during this game.
