3 Instances when India have successfully chased targets of 190 or more in T20Is, the most by any team. South Africa is the only other team to do it more than once. India had chased 207 against Sri Lanka in Mohali in 2009 and 202 against Australia in Rajkot in 2013. This is the first time India finished a successful chase off the final ball of a match and the 15th instance overall for any team.
4 Clean sweeps in a T20I series of three or more matches; this is also only the second in a series involving two Full Member sides. The previous instance came in 2014 when Australia beat England 3-0 at home.
124* Shane Watson's score in this match, the second-highest score in T20 internationals after Aaron Finch's 156. Finch's innings came against England in Southampton in 2013. Watson's score is also the highest in T20 matches in Australia beating Luke Wright's 117 for Melbourne Stars against Hobart Hurricanes in Hobart in 2012.
1 Virat Kohli is the first batsman to score more than two fifty-plus scores in a bilateral T20I series. Kohli's tally of 199 runs in this series is also the second-highest by a batsman between dismissals in T20Is. Martin Guptill had scored 216 runs with scores of 91*, 78* and 47 in February 2012. Kohli's aggregate is also the second-highest by a batsman in bilateral T20I series. Hamilton Masakadza's 222 runs in the four-match series earlier this year against Bangladesh is the highest.
119* The highest individual score by a captain in T20Is before Watson's 124*, by Faf du Plessis against West Indies in Johannesburg in January 2015. Tillakaratne Dilshan is the only other batsman to score a century as captain in T20Is.
98 The highest score by a batsman in his first T20I as captain before Watson's 124*, by Ricky Ponting in February 2005 against New Zealand in Auckland. Another Australia captain is third on this list: Steven Smith had made 90 on his T20I captaincy debut, against England in Cardiff in 2015.
0 Centuries scored against India in T20Is before Watson's knock. The previous highest individual score against India was Chris Gayle's 98 that came in Bridgetown during the 2010 World T20.
71 Balls faced by Watson in this innings, the most by a batsman in T20Is. He surpassed Morne van Vyk's 70-ball innings of 114 not out against West Indies in Durban in 2015.
4 T20I centuries in a losing cause. Watson's score is the fourth-highest in overall T20 cricket in a defeat.
62.94 Percentage of runs scored by Watson in Australia's 5 for 197 - the fourth-highest percentage contribution in a completed T20I innings. Kane Williamson's 70% contribution against Sri Lanka in Chittagong in 2014 is the highest.
93 Runs added by Watson and Travis Head, the highest fourth-wicket partnership for Australia in T20Is. The pair went past an unbeaten 84-run stand shared by Adam Voges and David Warner against Sri Lanka in Sydney in 2013.
3 Number of Indians who have aggregated 1000 or more runs in T20Is. Rohit Sharma is the latest on the list behind Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina.
24 Runs scored off a Shaun Tait over [third of the innings], the third-most expensive over against India. The most expensive one was bowled by Stuart Broad, who conceded 36 in Durban [19th over of the innings] in the 2007 World T20, followed by Rory Kleinveldt's 25-run over in Gros Islet [18th over] in the 2010 World T20.
