Sarfraz Ahmed’s unbeaten 101 was his maiden century in ODIs. His previous best score was 65 against Australia in 2014. It was also the first century by a Pakistan wicketkeeper in World Cups. Moin Khan’s 63 against South Africa in 1999 was the previous best. The last century by any Pakistan batsman in the World Cup was Imran Nazir's 160 against Zimbabwe in 2007.

Umar Akmal took four catches, the highest for a Pakistan fielder (not as wicketkeeper) in an innings in World Cups. Ijaz Ahmed (1992) and Inzamam-ul-Haq (in 2007) have previously taken three catches each in an innings. In all ODIs, it’s the joint highest for a Pakistan fielder. Saleem Malik, Misbah and Younus Khan (twice), have all taken the same number of catches in an innings.

Pakistan’s captain Misbah-ul-Haq became the first player from Pakistan to be dismissed hit wicket in World Cups. Overall, four batsmen from Pakistan have been dismissed in that fashion, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Shoaib Malik and Javed Miandad being the others. Misbah is the only Pakistan player to have got out in this fashion twice in his career. Overall, eight batsmen have got out hit-wicket in the World Cup before Misbah.

William’s 107 is the only century by a captain of an associate nation in World Cups. Ashish Bagai, who led Canada in the 2011 World Cup, and Peter Borren, who led Netherlands in the same edition, both made identical scores of 84, the previous record. It was Porterfield scored his seventh ODI century on Sunday (March 15) against Pakistan, the most for any batsman from an associate team.
