1 - Bangladesh registered their maiden T20I win against Australia, after losing each of their previous four meetings in the format. Tuesday's game was also the first instance of the two teams clashing in a T20I outside the World T20s. Across all the three formats, Bangladesh have beaten Australia only twice previously; in an ODI at Cardiff and in a Test match at Mirpur.
131 for 7 - Bangladesh's total in the first T20I, the lowest they have successfully defended in this format, eclipsing their previous lowest of 133 against UAE at the Asia Cup in 2016.
1 - Only once have Australia failed to chase down a target below 140 in a full 20-over game. The previous lowest target they could not chase in a T20I was 143 against New Zealand during the 2016 World T20 game in Dharamsala.
108 - Australia's total during the first T20I against Bangladesh is their lowest 20-over total in this format. Their previous lowest was 117 for 7 against Pakistan during the 2012 World T20 game in Colombo.
2 - Number of T20I totals against Bangladesh that are lower than Australia's 108. Afghanistan were bundled out for 72 in the 2014 World T20 game while UAE were skittled for 82 in the 2016 Asia Cup.
4 for 19 - Nasum Ahmed's bowling figures are the best for Bangladesh in T20Is while opening the bowling. Mohammad Saifuddin's 4 for 33 against Afghanistan in 2019 is the only previous instance of a Bangladeshi opening bowler claiming a four-wicket haul in T20Is.
50 - Wickets for Mitchell Starc in T20I cricket. He became the first player to complete 50 wickets in Men's T20Is for Australia with two scalps he picked up during the first game.
