- This was Devine’s first century vs England and her first against any side in an ODI chase.
- Devine’s six to finish the chase meant she finished the series as top runscorer (164 runs), just pipping Amy Jones (161), and exactly 100 runs clear of New Zealand’s next best (Maddy Green).
- New Zealand’s next highest individual score in the series was Devine’s 33 in the 1st ODI.

- In ten ODI innings since the World Cup, Devine has 700 runs at an average of 87.50 and a SR of 106.87, with four centuries and three fifties.
- Devine had one century in 73 innings up until the end of the 2017 World Cup.
- Devine has 142 more runs than her closest challenger since the World Cup (England’s Tammy Beaumont on 558).
- Beaumont and Devine’s runs at Grace Road made them the 6th and 7th women respectively, to bring up 1,000 ICC Women’s Championship career runs.
- Suzie Bates’ 53 runs were her worst returns in a three match ODI series, and her third worst for a series of any length.
- Devine and Satterthwaite’s 54 run partnership was New Zealand’s only fifty partnership for the 3rd wicket or lower in this series, and their only 50+ stand for the 4th wicket or lower in either ODIs or T20Is in England this summer.
- Leigh Kasperek’s 5-39 were New Zealand’s second best ODI figures vs England women, and the eighth 5+ wicket haul taken by any woman against England in ODIs. The last was Beth McNeill’s 6-32 for New Zealand at Lincoln on February 2008.
- Kasperek is the leading wicket taker in women’s ODIs since the World Cup (24), followed by England’s Sophie Ecclestone (20).
- 104 at Grace Road today, to go with their 111 partnership in the 1st ODI at Headingley, made Tammy Beaumont and Amy Jones the first English opening pair to record two century stands in a bilateral women’s ODI series.
- Beaumont & Jones are in fact, just the sixth English opening pair to share two century stands in their ODI careers

- Beaumont has been a part of England’s last seven century partnerships for all wickets in ODIs, and 10 of the 13 England have made since she was recalled in June 2016.
- England’s collapse of 5-31 from 188/5 to 219 all out, was their worst for the last 5 wickets in an ODI since they lost 5-30 in their loss to India on the opening day of the 2017 World Cup.
