    How many times have England completed four run outs in an ODI?

    England managed to run out four New Zealand batsmen in Wednesday's win - how many times have we done that?

    England’s four run outs in the win at the Bay Oval was the fourth time they have completed that many in an ODI. The record is five which has happened 10 times.

    England v Australia, Lord’s, 1979

    England first completed a quartet of run outs as Australia trickled to 159/9 off 60 overs at Lord’s. Graham Yallop, Gary Cosier, Trevor Laughlin and Rodney Hogg were the run out victims before Graham Gooch cracked 53 as England won by six wickets.

    England v India, Perth, 1992

    England needed four run outs to pull off a thrilling nine-run win over India in the group stages of the World Cup. Ravi Shastri, Pravin Amre, Kiran More and Javagal Srinath were all short of their ground as England successfully defended 236/9.

    England v Australia, The Oval, 1997

    England restricted Australia to 249/6 with four of the dismissals coming from runs outs. Smart fielding from Robert Croft and Adam Hollioake dismissed Mark Waugh and Mark Taylor respectively before Phil DeFreitas ran out Michael Slater. At that point three of the four wickets to have fallen were run outs. Graham Lloyd completed the quartet by dismissing Ian Healy as England ran out winners by six wickets.

    England v New Zealand, Bay Oval, 2018

    Ben Stokes was involved in two runs outs as England beat New Zealand by six wickets at the Bay Oval to level the series at 1-1. David Willey and Jonny Bairstow instigated a run out each as New Zealand were bowled out for 223.

    Should keepers stand in front or behind the stumps for run outs?

    When a millimetre can make all the difference - what approach is best?
