Stats - All the records that Australia's batting collapse broke

Australia became the first team to lose a T20I match after needing less than 50 runs in the last 10 overs

0 Number of times a team failed to chase less than 50 runs in the final ten overs of a T20I before the St Lucia T20I. The previous fewest target runs unachieved in the last ten overs was 53 by New Zealand, also against West Indies in 2006. The game ended in a tie, but New Zealand went on to win the bowl out.
1 Australia are the first team to lose a T20 match despite the required rate being under five in the last ten overs after scoring 100-plus runs in the first half (where ball-by-ball data is available). Australia raced to 105 for 4 by the end of the tenth over but fell short of the 146-run target.
16 Overs batted by Australia, the fewest by any team before getting all out in a T20 chase, inside 20 runs of the target. The previous lowest was 16.2 overs by Tamil Union CAC against Colombo CC in 2015, bowled out for 148 while chasing a target of 165 runs.
2.92 Ratio between the powerplay totals of Australia and West Indies during the first T20I. Australia scored 70 runs during the powerplay phase, while West Indies got only 24 runs. Only one losing team had a higher multiple of the winning team's powerplay total in T20Is - 3.18 by Netherlands, who scored 54 runs during the powerplay against Scotland in 2017 but lost by seven runs. Scotland, who batted first in that game, had only 17 at the end of the sixth over.
47.9 Percentage of the 146-run target that Australia wiped off by the end of the powerplay. It is the highest proportion of the target any team that achieved inside the powerplay in a T20I chase before going on to lose. The previous highest was also by Australia, who scored 72 in the powerplay while chasing a 158-run target against Sri Lanka in 2011 but ended up with only 149.
19 Runs added by Australia while losing the last six wickets, their second-lowest aggregate for the loss of the last six wickets in a T20I game. Australia lost their last six wickets for only ten runs during the 2010 T20 World Cup game against Pakistan, also held in St Lucia.
