4 - Pacer Jason Behrendorff on Tuesday became only the fourth Australian bowler to take five wickets in one-day internationals at Lord’s. Behrendorff finished with 5-44 against England and joined an elite group of players like Gary Gilmour, Michael Kasprowicz and Brett Lee who had previously achieved five wickets at this prestigious venue. Lee had done it twice among the Australian bowlers.

6 - Australia beat England by 64 runs at Lord’s on Tuesday and with that they became the first team to beat the English side on six occasions in World Cup history. New Zealand, Pakistan and Sri Lanka all beat England five times each in the cricket’s biggest event.

16 - With his 1-56 against Australia on Tuesday, England pacer Jofra Archer took his wickets tally to 16 in this World Cup. With that, he equalled Ian Botham’s record of taking most wickets in a single of World Cup for England. Botham also took 16 wickets in the 1992 World Cup and Archer has two more league stage matches to surpass his record.

500 - Australian batsman David Warner on Tuesday scored 53 off 61 balls and became the eighth batsman to score 500 or more runs in a World Cup tournament. Earlier, Sachin Tendulkar, Matthew Hayden, Mahela Jayawardene, Martin Guptill, Kumar Sangakkara, Ricky Ponting and Tillakaratne Dilshan achieved the feat in other editions of World Cup. Tendulkar, however, is the only batsman to do it twice in 1996 and 2003 World Cups.
