Sri Lanka's 87-0 is the joint highest score Australia have conceded in the opening 10 overs of a 50-over match since Cricinfo's ball-by-ball records began (2001), in over 400 innings.

Joe Root in Southampton became only the second player in ODI history to score a century, take two (or more) wickets and two (or more) catches; after Aravinda de Silva, in the 1996 World Cup final.

Recently, yes. Since 2016, they've won all their matches there (5 ODIs, a Test and 2 T20s). Overall, W11 L7 in ODIs. England in ODIs on home grounds by win:loss ratio (all-time):

Run rate as a batting side, minus run rate as a bowling side; but if you are all out, it counts as 50 overs (or the scheduled overs, if reduced by rain). So 100 all out in 10 overs would count as a run rate of 2.0.

Still reckon they could find enough for it. I think people would volunteer for it, if they got to sit around the boundary for the day.

To a point; but I think SL v Pakistan in Bristol might have gone ahead. SL v Bang needed an ark.

A good question posed by - Might be worth setting aside a bit more of the $1.98 billion TV deal money for some tarpaulins next time.

History at the Oval. The top 5 of both teams have all reached 25 - the first time this has happened in ODIs, in 4155 matches.

33 batsmen out bowled in this World Cup so far. 5 times the bails have neglected to fall off. That is an 87% success rate. Disappointing if you're a bail, I imagine. You want to be up in the high 99s.

Dhawan & Rohit have shared 6 century partnerships v Australia, tying the ODI record for most 100 stands by a pair of batsmen against one team -- Greenidge & Haynes, six 100 stands for WI v India.

At a guess... possibly. Will try to look later. Recording jokes currently.

Coulter-Nile now 90*. In between the 2015 World Cup and this one, Australia's number 8s averaged 16.3 - the second lowest of the ten 2019 World Cup teams - with one 50 in 56 innings.
