England Women completed a 3-0 series sweep over Pakistan women in the One-Day International series on Monday (June 27). The last two ODIs saw England notching up some humongous scores after which Pakistan capitulated meekly. Heather Knight started her new innings as England captain with a fifty and a five-wicket haul in Leicester while Tammy Beaumont was easily the player of the series - top scoring for England with 342 runs.

Stats highlights from the three-match ODI series:

14 Heather Knight became the 14th player to captain England Women in ODIs. She is the third woman to captain England in the last decade after Charlotte Edwards (117 ODIs) and Nicky Shaw (4 ODIs).

1 Player to score a fifty and take five wickets in an innings in the same Women's ODI. Knight took 5 for 26 and scored an unbeaten fifty in Leicester on her captaincy debut.

378 for 5 by England Women in the second ODI in Worcester is the fourth highest ODI total ever and the highest for England eclipsing 376 for 2 against the same opposition in Vijayawada in 1997.

366 for 4 by England Women in the third ODI in Taunton is their third highest ODI total and ninth highest overall in Women's ODIs. It was the first time a team made totals in excess of 350 in consecutive women's ODIs.

6 times Pakistan Women have conceded a total in excess of 350 - the most for a team. Denmark, Japan and Sri Lanka had conceded once each. England have put up 350-plus total thrice while Australia and New Zealand have done it twice.

3 Number of times a women's team has lost consecutive ODIs with a margin in excess of 200 runs. Netherlands lost to New Zealand by 248 and 210 runs in consecutive ODIs in June 1997. The first such occasion was again by Pakistan when they lost by 408 runs to New Zealand and 374 runs to Australia in 1997. (These two being the world record margin of wins in women's ODIs)

235-run stand between Tammy Beaumont and Lauren Winfield in the second ODI is the seventh highest stand in all women's ODIs. It is the fourth highest first wicket stand overall and third highest for England for any wicket.

6 sixes hit by Natalie Sciver in the second ODI is the joint second most for a player in Women's ODI after Deandra Dottin's seven against Pakistan in 2011. However it is the most sixes by any who faced fifty or fewer balls.

88 runs conceded by Asmavia Iqbal in the Worcester ODI is the second most in all women's ODI after Shazia Khan's 111 in 10 overs against Australia in Melbourne in 1997. Overall there have been six occasions where the bowler has conceded over 80 runs in a women's ODIs, all by Pakistan bowlers.

11 Sixes hit by England Women in the second ODI - the most in an innings in women's ODI. The previous highest was nine by New Zealand against Pakistan in Sydney in 2009.

168* by Tammy Beaumont is the second highest individual score for England Women in all ODIs after 173* by Charlotte Edwards against Ireland in Pune in 1997.

5 Players have score consecutive hundreds in women's ODIs, Tammy Beaumont being the fifth and first from England. The other before her to achieve the coveted feat are Jill Kennare, Karen Rolton and Meg Lanning of Australia and Debbie Hockley of New Zealand.

4 Instances of four bowlers conceding over 60 runs in the same innings, twice this happened in this series - in Worcester and in Taunton.

4 Five-wicket hauls for Katherine Brunt in women's ODIs, 5 for 30 in Taunton being the fourth. Only Anisa Mohammed (5) of West Indies has more.

342 runs were scored by Tammy Beaumont - the most by any player in a three-match series. Her scores read 70, 104 and 168*. In the 23 ODIs in her career prior to this series, she had scored just 207 runs in 16 innings with the highest being 44.

7 Wins for England against Pakistan in as many games. The winning margins being 230 runs, eight wickets, 111 runs, six wickets, seven wickets, 212 runs and 202 runs.
