1 South Africa's rank in ODIs. With this win, they have taken over the top spot from Australia. Australia had held on to the position for more than 26 months, from November 23, 2014, when they had wrapped up a 4-1 series win against South Africa at home.

6 Instances of South Africa winning a bilateral ODI series by a 5-0 margin: three of the previous five were against West Indies, with one against New Zealand in 2000, and one against Australia last year. With this win against Sri Lanka, South Africa have won successive home series by 5-0 margins. This is Sri Lanka's second 5-0 series loss in ODIs. Previously they lost to India in 2014-15.

384 South Africa's total, their highest in ODIs against Sri Lanka, and their ninth-highest against any team. Their previous best against Sri Lanka was 367, scored in Cape Town three days ago.

24 Totals of 350 or more for South Africa in ODIs, the most by any team. India are next with 23, followed by Australia with 18.

14 Consecutive wins in home ODIs for South Africa - before the 5-0 rout here, they had beaten Australia by the same margin, and won an ODI against Ireland and three against England.

They have had two longer home streaks without defeats - in 1996-97, and in 2005-06 - but in each case, the number of wins were fewer.
