36 Runs Sri Lanka needed off the last two overs, which they chased down, the most by any team. Australia needed 34 off the last two overs against Pakistan in the 2010 World T20 and pulled off a similar heist.

411.11 Asela Gunaratne's strike rate of his last nine balls. He smashed 37 runs, including three fours and four sixes. He had scored 47 off his first 37 balls with three fours and a six.

1 Number of higher scores than Gunaratne's 84 not out by a batsman at No.5 or lower in a chase in T20Is. Joe Root had made an unbeaten 90 against Australia in Southampton in 2013, but it ended in a losing cause. Gunaratne's score is the highest by a Sri Lanka player at No.5 or lower in T20Is and the sixth highest by any player.

5-0 Sri Lanka's win-loss record in T20Is in Australia. It is the second best record in a country without losing a game. Australia is the only country where Sri Lanka haven't lost a T20I, and they are the only team unbeaten in Australia.

5 Successive losses for Australia in T20Is at home - three against India last year and two against Sri Lanka this series. This is their longest losing streak at home, passing four consecutive defeats in 2012-13.

4/31 Nuwan Kulasekara's figures - his best in T20Is, bettering his 4 for 32 against England in the 2014 World T20. He picked up three wickets off the last four balls of Australia's innings.
