England’s run rate of 5.5 per over in the recently-concluded Test series against Pakistan was the greatest ever. No other team in the history of the format has had a run rate of five or more in a Test series of three or more matches. The previous highest was 4.66 by Australia in the three-match home series against West Indies in 2015-16.
Moreover, it’s the first instance of Pakistan getting whitewashed at home in a Test series consiting of three or more games.
