THE WEEK IN NUMBERS: ENGLAND'S COLLAPSE AND AMLA'S 7,000

Cricket by numbers...

17 

In his previous nineteen ODI innings Tamim Iqbal has been caught seventeen times. He has not been dismissed in a fashion other than caught since being stumped in November 2015.

72.5 

Australia’s win percentage in ICC tournaments prior to the 2017 Champions Trophy, higher than any other country.

30

The number of deliveries it took for England to lose their first six wickets at Lord's - the fastest a side has done so in ODI history.

150

On the same day that a shellshocked England found themselves being reduced to 20 for 6 at Lord's, Hashim Amla became the fastest to 7,000 ODI runs, reaching the landmark in 150 innings and surpassing the previous record set by India's Virat Kohli.

Fastest to 7,000 ODI runs:

Player Opposition Ground Innings
Hashim Amla England Lord's 150
Virat Kohli Australia Melbourne 161
AB de Villiers Australia Perth 166
Sourav Ganguly Kenya Paarl 174
Brian Lara South Africa St George's 183

Hashim hits 7,000

116.40 

Gary Ballance’s average after Yorkshire's first four Championship matches, having hit three centuries with a highest score of 203 not out. 

202 

Joe Root’s innings against Bangladesh was the longest in terms of minutes (202), and balls faced (129), of his ODI career, beating the 201 minutes he batted for against Pakistan at Lord's last summer. 

Only one player in the Australia team that faced New Zealand at Edgbaston made their ODI debut before Moises Henriques (David Warner) but he has made the fewest ODI appearances of the entire team.
