Stats highlights from India’s thrilling win over New Zealand (3rd ODI)



Last Updated on 7 years by Charbel Coorey

What a fantastic way to end a fantastic little ODI series…

New Zealand pushed India all the way, thanks to a fantastic effort from their top and middle order.

Those middle order issues that we saw in Champions Trophy seem to be gone for New Zealand. For India, once again their batsmen stepped up when they needed to most, and the performance of Jasprit Bumrah will be remembered for a long time indeed. He has a big future, that’s for sure.

Here are the stats highlights of India’s thrilling series-clinching victory over New Zealand:

Fastest to 9,000 ODI runs 

Virat Kohli did the usual – score an ODI century, en route to becoming the quickest to the 9,000 run mark in ODIs. By the end of his career, he might very well be considered the greatest ODI batsman ever.

India’s best ever run in bilateral ODI series

India have now won 7 straight ODI series, dating back to the series against Zimbabwe last year.
This is their best ever run when it comes to consecutive bilateral ODI series wins. Their previous best was six straight between 2007-2009. This is brilliant from the men in blue.

Second fastest to 50 ODI wickets for India

Jasprit Bumrah, who in my opinion was unlucky not to get Man of the Match, became the second fastest Indian to 50 ODI wickets, achieving the feat in just 28 matches.

Second fastest to 150 sixes in ODIs

Rohit Sharma, during his fantastic hundred, was the second fastest to 150 sixes in ODI history, after Shahid Afridi.

Fourth-time unlucky for New Zealand

This was the fourth time New Zealand played a series decider in India, and have lost on all four occasions (1995, 1999, 2016, 2017)
8th fastest to 15 ODI centuries

Rohit Sharma became the 8th quickest player to reach 15 ODI centuries (165 innings).
A special series, full of awesome records, has come to an end. Looking forward to the T20I series, where New Zealand will be out to maintain their first placed ranking.
