Australia v England ODI Series 2014

Adelaide Oval, Adelaide: Sunday 26 January 2014 13:50 (day 1 of 1)

Toss: Australia won the toss and elected to bat.

Result: Australia win by 5 runs

  1. Australia have lost three of their last four One Day Internationals at Adelaide, including their most recent contest against England, in January 2011.
  2. That win ended a run of three consecutive defeats for England at Adelaide. Overall they have won four and lost nine at the venue.
  3. Australia have won 31 and lost 15 of their 46 ODIs at Adelaide (67%) – of the main Australian venues they have only won a higher percentage of matches at Hobart (12 wins from 17, 70%).
  4. England's nine-wicket defeat against Australia at Adelaide in January 2007 was their second heaviest in Australia in terms of balls remaining – Australia reached their target of 111 in 24.3 overs.
  5. Mitchell Johnson took four wickets in that match. He has 11 wickets in five ODIs at the venue – his average of 21.5 at Adelaide is his lowest at any Australian venue he has bowled at least 20 overs at.
  6. Michael Clarke averages 61 at Adelaide, with one century and three half-centuries in 13 ODI innings at the venue. It is his highest average at a ground he has played more than five innings at.
  7. Aaron Finch has now hit 251 runs in this series at an average of 62.75 and a strike rate of 95.8, Shane Watson's total of 306 runs in 2010/11 is the most ever scored by an Australian in a bilateral ODI series with England (six matches at an average of 61.2 and a strike rate of 102.34).
  8. Despite being the leading run scorer in this series, Finch actually has the lowest attacking shot rate (34.4%) of any of the nine batsmen to score 100+ runs.
  9. Jos Buttler's strike rate of 142.34 is the best ever by an England player to score 100+ runs in an ODI series.
  10. Despite taking just one wicket, Mitchell Johnson has induced a false shot with 49% of his 120 deliveries in this ODI series so far, by far the highest rate of any bowler in action (Chris Jordan is 2nd on the list at 36.7%).
