Stats - Contrasting records for Stoinis and Finch

An evening to forget for Hasaranga too

17 balls Marcus Stoinis needed for his fifty against Sri Lanka, the fastest for Australia in men's T20Is. The previous quickest was off 18 balls, jointly shared by David Warner (vs WI in 2010) and Glenn Maxwell (vs PAK in 2014 and vs SL in 2016). Stoinis' fifty is also the second fastest in men's T20Is against Sri Lanka, behind Colin Munro's fifty off 14 balls in 2016.
1 Number of fifties in the men's T20 World Cup, faster than the Stoinis' 17-ball effort. Yuvraj Singh's fifty against England in the 2007 edition came in only 12 balls, which is the fastest in T20Is. Dutch batter Stephen Myburgh also has a 17-ball fifty in T20 World Cups, which he scored against Ireland in 2014.
73.8 Aaron Finch's strike rate during his unbeaten 31 off 42 balls. It is the slowest innings by any batter in the men's T20 World Cup for a minimum of 30 runs. The previous slowest was by Paul Stirling, whose 30* against Netherlands in 2021 had a strike-rate of 76.92.
254 Difference in the strike rates between Stoinis and Finch, the highest between two batters to have faced 15-plus in a T20I innings. The previous highest was 246.3, between the Serbian opening pair of Wintley Burton and Robin Vitas against Bulgaria in June this year.
17.66 Wanindu Hasaranga's economy rate for his three overs, where he conceded 53 runs. It is the second-worst economy rate in an innings at the men's T20 World Cup for a minimum of three overs bowled. Izatullah Dawlatzai had an economy of 18.66 against England in 2012, where he conceded 56 runs in three overs. Hasaranga's economy is also the second-worst for a Sri Lanka bowler in a men's T20I.
2.5 Overs in which Hasaranga conceded fifty runs with the ball against Australia. Only one bowler from a full-member nation conceded 50 runs in fewer overs in a men's T20I - 2.3 overs by Hamish Bennett against West Indies in 2020 (where ball-by-ball data is available). This game was also the first instance of Hasaranga conceding 50-plus runs in a T20.
71.5 Percentage of target runs scored by Australia in the middle overs (7-16). It is the third-highest percentage of a 150-plus target in men's T20Is achieved during the middle overs. Nepal scored 77% of their 152-run target against Singapore in 2019 between 7th and 16th overs, while P.N.G accounted for 72.7% of their 161-run chase in that phase against Uganda in 2022.
