110 = number of innings taken by Kane Williamson to reach 5000 runs, the fewest by a New Zealander.
17 = number of centuries scored by Kane Williamson, the joint most by a New Zealander (with Martin Crowe).

Both records occurred in the same innings in Hamilton 2017.

120 = wickets to fall in the India-South Africa series, the only time all 120 have fallen in a three test series.

Presumably not, but in every other instance there must have been either a declaration or an innings victory.
