127 Smriti Mandhana 's score at the Carrara Oval, the highest for a visiting player in women's Tests in Australia. The previous highest score was Molly Hide's unbeaten 124, for England, in Sydney in 1949.
1 Mandhana's 127 is the first Test hundred for India in Australia and only their second against Australia. Sandhya Agarwal's 134 in 1984 was the first Test hundred for India versus Australia. Rajani Venugopal's 58 in 1991 was the previous highest Test score for India in Australia.
4 Women to score a century in both Tests and ODIs against Australia, including Mandhana. She joins the elite list of Enid Bakewell, Debbie Hockley and Claire Taylor . Mandhana, however, is the only woman with Test and ODI hundreds against Australia in Australia, having scored her maiden ODI century in Hobart in 2016.
3 First-innings individual scores in women's Tests that are higher than Mandhana's 127 after being put in to bat by the opposition. Kiran Baluch 's 242 in 2004, the highest individual score in women's Tests, came after the West Indies elected to bowl first.
51 Number of balls Mandhana needed to complete her fifty, the second fastest recorded half-century in women's Tests. The fastest is by India's Sangita Dabir who scored an unbeaten 50 off 42 balls against England in 1995. Dabir's fifty came in only 40 balls as per the official scoresheet of that Test match. Mandhana's hundred off 170 balls is also the fastest recorded Test ton for India.
74 Percentage of Mandhana's runs that came in boundaries. From the information available with ESPNcricinfo, Mandhana's is the second-highest percentage of runs to have come in boundaries in a century innings in women's Tests. Charlotte Edwards hit 80% of her runs in fours in her score of 105 against India at Taunton in 2006, which is the highest.
195 for 2 India's total at the fall of Mandhana's wicket, the second-most runs conceded by Australia in a Test innings before the fall of the second wicket. The highest is 228 runs during England's first innings of the Sydney Test in 1935.
