2 Test matches hosted by Australia that were completed within the first two days, including the first Australia-South Africa Test in Brisbane. The first instance was between Australia and West Indies when they faced off in Melbourne in 1931. The Brisbane Test is also the second shortest completed Test in Australia by balls.
7 Number of Tests with a result in fewer balls than the Brisbane Test's 866. Only one of those seven took place since World War II - last year's Test between India and England in Ahmedabad, which completed in only 842 balls.
25.5 Balls per wicket for bowlers in the Brisbane Test, the second-best bowling strike rate in a Test match with 30 or more scalps for bowlers. The 1888 Lord's Test between England and Australia had a bowling strike rate of 20.8, where 38 wickets fell in only 792 balls.
78 Runs added for the first three wickets in this Test match across the four innings. These are the second-fewest runs scored before the fall of the third wicket across four innings in a Test match (where at least three wickets fell in all four innings). The fewest is 77 runs in the 1935 Bridgetown Test between West Indies and England.
99 South Africa's total in their second innings in Brisbane, their second-lowest against Australia in Tests since their readmission in 1991. They were bowled out for 96 in their first innings of the Cape Town Test in 2011. South Africa's 99 all out is also their fourth-lowest total ever in Tests in Australia.
251 South Africa's aggregate in this Test match is their second-lowest against Australia, where they were all out twice. Their lowest is 81 during the 1931-32 tour in Melbourne - bowled out for 36 and 45.
8 Number of all-out totals below 200 in Tests for South Africa this year. These are the most sub-200 totals by them in a calendar year. They were bowled out under 200 on seven occasions in 1912, 2015 and 2018.
