England thrashed India by nine wickets with more than 22 overs to spare on Tuesday to register their first victory in the tri-series tournament in Australia.

Fast bowler Steven Finn claimed his first five-wicket haul in a One-Day International as England destroyed India's batting at the Gabba in Brisbane. He took five wickets for 33 runs from eight overs while James Anderson claimed four as the pair skittled the reigning World champions for 153 in less than 40 overs.

Ian Bell and James Taylor then posted unbeaten half-centuries as England cruised to victory in 27.3 overs, earning a bonus point for their lopsided win.

# James Taylor (56 not out off 63 balls) posted his third fifty in ODIs.

# Bell and Taylor shared an unbroken partnership of 131 for the second wicket, England's highest stand for any wicket against India at a neutral venue in ODIs, eclipsing the 110 between Graham Gooch and Robin Smith for the second wicket at Perth on February 22, 1992.

Jos Buttler became the third wicketkeeper to effect five dismissals in an innings at the Gabba, in Brisbane. Courtney Browne (West Indies) was the first to accomplish the feat, against Sri Lanka on January 5, 1996, followed by Australia's Matthew Wade, against India on February 19, 2012.

# Buttler is the first England wicketkeeper to achieve the distinction against India in ODIs.

# He recorded his best performance as a wicketkeeper against India in ODIs. In all, he has effected five dismissals in ODIs on four occasions. He is the only England wicketkeeper to do so in ODIs.

# India's total of 153 is their lowest all-out score vs England in ODIs, outstripping the 158 at Leeds on May 25, 1996. # England emulated their largest victory in terms of wickets against India in ODIs. They had won by nine wickets against India at Headingley on June 2, 1982.

# England registered their largest win in terms of wickets in Australia in ODIs. They won with 135 balls remaining -- their largest in terms of balls to spare against India, surpassing their victory by seven wickets with 131 balls to spare at Ranchi on January 19, 2013.

Steven Finn became the first England bowler to bag five wickets in an ODI vs India at neutral venue. He is the second England bowler to claim five wickets in an ODI at Gabba. Chris Woakes had taken six for 45 vs Australia on January 30, 2011.

# Finn's match-winning figures of 5 for 33 are his best in ODIs, eclipsing four for 34 vs Pakistan at Abu Dhabi on February 13, 2012.

# Finn's performance of five for 33 is the second best by an England bowler against India in ODIs behind to Ronnie Irani's five for 26 at The Oval on July 9, 2002.

# Finn has captured Rahane's wicket five times in ODIs - the most times a bowler has bagged his wicket. No other bowler has taken his wicket more than twice in ODIs.

# Finn justifiably got his second Man of the Match award in ODIs. His first was against Australia at Chester-le-Street on July 7, 2012.

# Ajinkya Rahane's 33 is his highest score in ODIs in Australia.

# Stuart Binny (44) posted his highest score in ODIs, bettering the 25 not out vs Bangladesh at Dhaka on June 19, 2014.

# James Anderson (4/18) recorded his best bowling figures against India in ODIs, bettering the 4 for 23 at Southampton on August 21, 2007.

# Anderson took his tally to 39 (ave.33.76) in 30 matches - the highest by an England bowler against India in ODIs, obliterating the 37 (ave.28.89) in 30 matches by Andrew Flintoff - the previous best tally in England-India ODIs.

# Two English bowlers have taken four wickets or more in the same innings for the fourth time - their first ever instance away from home.

# Axar Patel got his second consecutive duck in ODIs, both in the current tournament.
