• India's collapse to 5 for 3 is the eighth worst start in World Cup history at the loss of the third wicket. The Bangladesh and Sri Lanka game at Pietermaritzburg in 2003 and Pakistan and New Zealand match at Edgbaston in 1983 saw Bangladesh and Pakistan lose their first three wickets without a run scored.
  • Ravindra Jadeja became the first player to record a fifty in a World Cup semi-final at number 8 or lower.
  • The partnership of 116 between Jadeja and Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the highest for the seventh wicket at the World Cup overtaking two of 107 involving United Arab Emirates against West Indies at Napier and Ireland at Brisbane, both in 2015.
  • New Zealand's 239 for 8 is the fourth-lowest, World Cup semi-final winning total. Australia's 207 for 8 against West Indies at Mohali in 1996 remains the lowest.
  • There have been two instances in ODIs of the first three batsmen being dismissed without scoring but India's innings saw the first occasion of the first three batsmen each being dismissed for 1.
  • India's defeat brings to an end a winning streak of five matches at Old Trafford dating back to 1983.
  • After defeats in six World Cup semi-finals (in 1975, 1979, 1992, 1999, 2007 and 2011), New Zealand have since won their last two semi-finals in 2015 and 2019 and are the first team to qualify for the final. Should Australia beat England, the 2019 final will be between the same two teams which contested the 2015 final. Only Australia and Sri Lanka have twice played each other in a World Cup final.
