128 Target that Australia failed to chase in the third T20I. No team has failed in chasing a target below 150 in men's T20Is despite losing only four or fewer wickets before this Australian team. The previous lowest was 158 by the West Indies last week against Pakistan in Guyana. Australia's effort on Friday stands at the top of the list of lowest unsuccessful chases with four or more wickets in hand as well.
1 The target of 128 is also the lowest that Australia failed to chase in T20Is. The lowest total they could not chase down previously was 131 against Bangladesh during the first match of this series. It was also the previous lowest total that Bangladesh had successfully defended in this format, with the latest result being a new record.
2 Number of 20-over totals lower than Australia's 117 in men's T20Is while losing four or fewer wickets. Nigeria had scored 111 for 3 against UAE, while Botswana had made 116 for 2 against Namibia, both in 2019.
8 Consecutive defeats for Australia while chasing in the T20I format. Their last successful T20I chase was during the three-match T20I series against England in 2020. Only Zimbabwe (10 defeats in 2010-2013 and 2016-2019) and Sri Lanka (9 losses in 2019-2021) had longer losing streaks than Australia while chasing in T20Is.
5 Australia have lost all five T20I series they've played in the last 12 months - against England, India, New Zealand, West Indies and now Bangladesh. They have won only five of the 19 matches they've played in those series, with just two victories coming with the series on the line.
9 Runs conceded by Mustafizur Rahman in his four overs, the joint second-most economical by a Bangladeshi in a full spell in men's cricket. Mahmudullah had given away only eight runs in his four overs during the 2014 World T20 game against Afghanistan.
20 for 1 Australia's total at the end of the sixth over, their lowest total ever in a T20I powerplay. The previous lowest was 21 for 2 against Pakistan during the World T20 2012.
1 Nathan Ellis became the first player to take a hat-trick on debut in men's T20Is. Ellis' hat-trick is also only the third in men's T20Is for Australia after Brett Lee (against Bangladesh in 2007) and Ashton Agar (against South Africa in 2020).
