Second biggest chase in ODI history
1 Number of higher successful run-chases in ODIs than the target of 372 chased by South Africa in this match. The biggest of all successful chases was also by South Africa when they chased 435 at Wanderers in 2006. Incidentally, the top-four successful chases have all been against Australia.
1 Batsman at No. 6 or lower to make a higher score than David Miller's unbeaten 118 in a successful chase of 300 or more in ODIs. Yousuf Pathan made 123 not out against New Zealand in Bangalore in 2010 chasing a target of 316. For South Africa, no player batting at No. 6 or lower had scored a century while chasing before Miller. Hansie Cronje's 87 not out against Zimbabwe in Centurion in 1997 was the previous highest.
5 Instances of Australia losing the first three matches of a bilateral ODI series. The last such series for them, before this, was against England in 2012 where they lost the four completed matches of the series.
2009 Last time South Africa defeated Australia in a bilateral ODI series. They played each other twice in between and Australia had won both those series - 2-1 in 2011 in South Africa and 4-1 in 2014 at home.
3 ODIs with a higher aggregate of runs from both teams than the 743 runs scored in this match. A mammoth 872 runs were scored in the famous Wanderers ODI of 2006, 825 in Rajkot between India and Sri Lanka in 2009 and 763 at The Oval between England and New Zealand last year.
107* Runs added by Miller and Andile Phehlukwayo for the seventh-wicket, the fourth-biggest stand in successful chase for the seventh-wicket or lower. It is the second-highest seventh-wicket partnership for South Africa in ODIs.
2000 The last time South Africa won an ODI against Australia at Kingsmead. They had lost each of the four encounters since then before winning this match. Overall, their record is 3-5 against Australia in Durban.
325 Runs conceded by the opening bowlers in this match from either side, the most in any ODI and the first instance of more than 300.

The other bowlers conceded only 418 runs in 60.2 overs compared to 325 runs in 39 overs by the opening bowlers.
82.42 Quinton de Kock's average while chasing in ODIs this year. He has amassed 577 runs in eight innings while chasing including three big centuries and a 70 in this match. When batting first, he has scored only 250 runs in seven innings with no centuries.
34* Previous highest score for Phehlukwayo in his List A career. This was just his second ODI innings, making an unbeaten 42 off 39 balls to help Miller get South Africa across the line.
69 Balls taken by David Miller to reach his century, the fastest by a South African batsman against Australia. The previous fastest was by Quinton de Kock off 74 balls in the first ODI of this series.

96 Runs conceded by Dale Steyn, the most by any South African bowler in an ODI. The previous worst was 95 by Wayne Parnell against India in Gwalior in 2010, a match better remembered for Sachin Tendulkar becoming the first batsman to score a double-century in ODI cricket.
