Huge scores, scorching strike-rates, and monumental partnerships
436/4 – New Zealand’s total was the second highest in all Under 19 ODIs, behind Australia’s 480/6, also against Kenya, in the 2002 ICC U19 CWC.
180 – Jakob Bhula’s innings was the highest individual score in all Under 19 ODIs, surpassing Theo Doropoulos’ 179 not out against England at Sydney in 2003.
19 – balls in which Finn Allen reached his half-century, the joint-second quickest in Under 19 ODIs, behind Rishabh Pant’s 18-ball fifty against Nepal in the 2016 ICC U19 CWC.
225.00 – Finn Allen’s eventual strike-rate during his innings of 90 off 40 balls, the fifth highest strike-rate for a 50-plus score in the ICC U19 CWC, and the highest by a New Zealand player.
245 – the opening partnership between Rachin Ravindra and Jakob Bhula, the highest in the U19 ODIs, beating Amit Majumder and Anamul Haque’s 231 in Bogra against Zimbabwe in 2009. It was also New Zealand’s second-highest stand for any wicket behind BJ Watling and Brad Wilson’s 273 in the 2004 ICC U19 CWC against Scotland, the fourth-highest for any wicket and team in U19 ODIs, and the third-highest for any wicket and team in the ICC U19 CWC.
156 – the second-wicket partnership between Finn Allen and Jakob Bhula, New Zealand’s fourth-highest in Under 19 ODIs. Their third-highest was made by the same partnership days ago against West Indies, meaning that three of New Zealand’s four biggest U19 ODI stands have come in the last week.
15.34 – the run-rate during Allen and Bhula’s second-wicket partnership, the fastest for a 100-plus run stand in U19 ODIs, beating Unmukt Chand and Manan Vohra’s run rate of 13.91 during their unbroken partnership of 167 against Australia at Visakhapatnam in 2011.
11.71 – Abhishekh Chidambaran’s spell of 0/82 had the highest economy rate of any spell of more than five overs in U19 ODIs.
243 – New Zealand’s margin of victory, their biggest in Under 19 ODIs. It is only Kenya’s second-biggest loss however, behind their 430-run loss against Australia in the 2002 ICC U19 CWC
