All the statistical highlights from Australia Women’s first win of the Tri-Nation T20I series:
End of India’s streak:
6 – The Sunday’s defeat put an end to India’s 6-match winning streak which began during the 5-match series in West Indies. This was India Women’s joint 2nd longest winning streak in T20Is.
5 – Prior to the 4-wicket loss against Australia, the Indian Women have won each of their last five T20I matches while defeating a total which is their longest such streak in this format.
Perry’s all-round show:
2 – Ellyse Perry recorded her 2nd double of 40+ runs and a 4-wicket haul in a T20I match with a 49 and 4/13 on Sunday. She scored 53 and took 4/12 also against India Women during the 2016 Sydney T20I which is also the only instance of a player scoring a fifty and claiming a 4-fer in a Women’s T20I.
Perry fell one run short of replicating her own record but became the first player in Women’s cricket with the double of 40+ runs and a 4-fer in the same T20I on two instances. In Men’s T20Is, Shakib Al Hasan is the only player to achieve the feat twice.
A record 4-wicket haul by Perry:
4 – Ellyse Perry now has claimed four 4-wicket hauls in the T20I cricket; the joint 2nd most by any player in Women’s T20Is. Anisa Mohammed has as many as seven 4-fers in this format including three 5-wicket hauls. Sana Mir is levelled on the second position with Perry as she also has four T20I 4-fers.
Healy’s World record:
74* – Alyssa Healy has been part of Australia Women’s last 74 T20I matches, a streak that began in January 2013. These are the most consecutive matches for a team by a player in T20I history. Healy went past Sana Mir’s streak of 73 T20Is for Pakistan Women between 2013 and 2019.
Best game for the Australian pacers:
8 – Number of wickets claimed by the Australian pacers in this match; the most by them in a home T20I in Women’s cricket. These 8 wickets are also the joint-most by Australia Women pacers in a T20I match. They collectively picked 8 wickets during the 2012 Vizag T20I also against India and in the 2015 Hove T20I against England.
Catches record by Mooney and Carey:
1 – Beth Mooney and Nicola Carey claimed three catches apiece during the Indian innings. This was the first instance of three players taking three or more catches in a Women’s T20I match but Mooney and Carey recorded it in the same innings itself.
