10 Fifty-plus scores for Virat Kohli in T20 internationals - the most by an Indian batsman. Rohit Sharma and Yuvraj Singh each have eight such scores. Click here for a list of batsmen with ten or more fifty-plus scores in T20Is.

78* Kohli's highest in T20Is before this match, which came against Pakistan in the 2012 World T20. His 90 not out in this match is the joint second-highest individual score in T20Is in Australia. Damien Martyn's 96 against South Africa at the Gabba in 2005-06 is the highest. David Warner has also made 90* against Sri Lanka at the SCG in 2012-13.

86.50 Kohli's average in his last ten T20I innings; he has made 519 runs, including six fifties at a strike rate of 139.89. Overall, Kohli averages 48.08 in T20Is - the highest by far among batsmen with at least 500 runs in this format.

2010 The only time Australia have successfully chased a target of 160 or more in T20Is, at the the World T20 semi-final against Pakistan when they ran down 197. This match was the 15th time they have failed to chase such a target in T20Is.

134 Runs added by the third-wicket partnership between Kohli and Suresh Raina - the second-highest in T20Is against Australia and the third-highest for any wicket for India. Kohli and Rohit had added 138 runs for the second wicket against South Africa in Dharamsala last year, which is the highest.

2 Australian players who have played 50 T20Is. Shane Watson joined the club today, while David Warner with 54 matches is the most capped player for Australia in this format.

2 India batsmen who have scored 1000 or more runs in T20Is with Raina getting to the landmark in this match. Raina has made 1024 runs at a strike rate of 133.85. His 41 off 34 balls today was his second-slowest in T20Is having faced at least 30 balls.

3/23 Jasprit Bumrah's bowling figures in this match - the fourth-best on T20I debut for India. Pragyan Ojha holds the record with his 4 for 21 against Bangladesh in June 2009. Hardik Pandya - the other debutant in the India team - conceded 37 runs from his three overs. Nineteen of them came off his first, making it the most expensive over by a debutant from a Full Member nation in T20Is. His economy of 12.33 in this match was the third-worst by an India bowler on debut.

45 Runs conceded by Shaun Tait, who was making a comeback to Australia T20I team after five years. These are his most expensive bowling returns in T20Is eclipsing the 40 runs he gave away off four overs against England in 2010-11 at the same venue, and against New Zealand in Christchurch in 2009-10.

37 Runs Australia lost this game by - their fourth-biggest defeat in T20Is while chasing. Their worst defeat while chasing came against England in the second ever T20 international - they lost by 100 runs.
