The World Cup came to an end with a heart-stopping finish on Sunday after 22,412 runs, 673 wickets, 31 centuries and 357 sixes. Here are Benedict Bermange's top 10 stats from watching the World Cup in England and Wales this summer...
1) England's men and women are now world champions in ODI cricket simultaneously for the first time, joining four Australian time periods.

|Australia||November 8 ,1987 to March 24, 1992|
|Australia||June 20, 1999 to December 22, 2000|
|Australia||April 10, 2005 to April 1, 2011|
|Australia||March 29, 2015 to July 22, 2017|
|England||From July 14, 2019|
2) Andre Russell of the West Indies became the 383rd player to score 1,000 ODI runs, and took the fewest balls to get there of the lot.

3) Chris Woakes became just the third man in ODI history to take three wickets and take four catches in the same ODI.

|Chris Woakes||3-71||4||England||Pakistan||Trent Bridge||2019|
4) The match between Australia and India provided the first instance in ODI history of the top five batsmen from both teams scoring at least 25 runs each.
5) Joe Root opened the batting for England against the West Indies. Nothing so remarkable about that, but it was the first time he had opened in ODI cricket in his 128th innings. He also marked the occasion with a century. Not only that, but he also took two wickets and two catches - just the second such performance in ODI history - and both came in World Cup matches.

|Aravinda de Silva||107 no||3-42||2||Sri Lanka||Australia||Lahore||March 17, 1996|
|Joe Root||100 no||2-27||2||England||West Indies||Rose Bowl||June 14, 2019|
6) Eoin Morgan's 17 sixes in his innings of 148 for England against Afghanistan set a new record for any ODI innings.
Most sixes in an ODI innings
|17||Eoin Morgan||England||Afghanistan||Old Trafford||2019|
|16||AB de Villiers||South Africa||West Indies||Johannesburg||2014/15|
|16||Chris Gayle||West Indies||Zimbabwe||Canberra||2015|
7) In Sri Lanka's victory over England, Root became Lasith Malinga's 50th World Cup wicket. He became just the fourth bowler to reach that landmark, and the quickest to get there in terms of matches. Coincidentally, the first names of Malinga's four victims in the match all started with the same letter - Jonny Bairstow, James Vince, Joe Root and Jos Buttler.

10) Pakistan's Shoaib Malik ended his ODI career as it started - with a golden duck. Only three players have batted more than once in their ODI career and topped and tailed it with golden ducks - Ruchira Perera, Gerrie Snyman and Malik.
