Warner, Head shatter records with epic stand

Before Warner, the highest score by an Australian against Pakistan was Hayden’s 146 in Nairobi in 2002.

78 – The number of balls taken by Warner to reach 100, the fastest of his ODI career which has now seen 13 hundreds. The previous fastest was off 88 balls against South Africa in Cape Town in 2016. It is also the fastest by any Australian batsman against Pakistan in ODIs beating Cameron White’s 85-ball ton in Brisbane in 2010.

128 – The number of runs scored by Travis Head at his home ground, the Adelaide Oval, in his maiden hundred in ODIs. Head is the 44th batsman from Australia and 356th overall to score a century in ODIs.

307 – The runs scored by Warner and Head combined, the second highest contribution by an opening pair in an innings in the history of one-day internationals. Warner scored 179 which was complimented by Head’s 128. The record is 327 runs by a New Zealand pair, Brendon McCullum (166) and James Marshall (161), against Ireland in Aberdeen in 2008.

4 – The number of times both opening batsmen for Australia have scored hundreds in the same innings in an ODI. Warner and Head marked fourth such instance. The previous three were by Aaron Finch & Shaun Marsh against Scotland in Edinburgh in 2013; Adam Gilchrist & Simon Katich against Sri Lanka in Brisbane in 2006; and Geoff Marsh & David Boon against India in Jaipur in 1986.

18 – The number of times Australia have scored 350 or more in the ODIs, the third most by any team and only behind South Africa (22) and India (23). Two of Australia’s eighteen 350-plus totals have come in this series. Australia had not scored 350 or more against Pakistan prior to this series.

100 – The number of runs conceded by Hasan Ali in his nine overs. He became just the second Pakistan bowler to leak 100 or more runs in a one-day international. The first was Wahab Riaz who had gone for 110 in ten overs against England last year in Nottingham.

39 – The number of overs bowled by Mohammad Hafeez in the series, the most by any Pakistan bowler and third most overall by any bowler without taking a wicket in a series or tournament. Only Sri Lanka’s Sachithra Senanayake (49) against Pakistan in 2013 and Zimbabwe’s Bryan Strang (40) in the tri-series in Sharjah in 2000 have bowled more overs in a series without claiming a wicket.

5 – The number of toss wins by Australia in the series. Steve Smith won all the coin toss and became just the third Australian captain to win all five tosses of a bilateral ODI series after Kim Hughes against India in 1984 and Ricky Ponting against New Zealand in 2010. For Pakistan, it was just the second time that they lost all five tosses of a bilateral ODI series. The first instance was against India in Toronto in 1998.

2 – The number of Pakistan batsmen who have scored a hundred against Australia in Australia. Middle-order batsman Babar Azam became just the second from Pakistan to achieve this feat, emulating the legendary Zaheer Abbas who scored 108 against Australia in Sydney in 1981.

The 26-year-old Umar Akmal became the nineteenth individual from Pakistan to reach this milestone and fifth youngest after Shahid Afridi (21), Shoaib Malik, Abdul Razzaq (24) and Inzamam-ul-Haq (25). Akmal completed 3,000 runs in 105 innings.
