Australia end their England tour without a win under the belt as they lost the one-off T20I after getting whitewashed in the ODI series. England’s move to open with Jos Buttler paid off as the keeper-batsman scored a record fifty and the hosts raced towards a huge total. Contributions from and other batsmen saw England finish on 221/5 in their 20 overs.
Australians were reduced to 72/5 by 9th over in the chase before their skipper Aaron Finch produced an assault. He scored 84 in just 41 balls to bring down the equation to 64 off 28 balls before getting out. The Australian lower-order could only add 35 more runs to the total before they were bowled out for 193 in the final over.
All the major stats and numbers that were recorded during England’s win in the Birmingham T20I:
22 – Jos Buttler’s fifty came off 22 balls which is the fastest fifty in the T20I format for England. The previous fastest T20I fifty for England was off 23 balls by Ravi Bopara in the 2014 Hobart T20I also against Austalia.
58 – The 58 runs conceded by Moeen Ali in this game are the 2nd most by any spinner in a T20I. Sanath Jayasuriya against Pakistan in the WT20 2007 and Yuzvendra Chahal at the Centurion T20I this year against South Africa conceded 64 runs apiece in their four overs.
59 – Kane Richardson was hit for 59 runs in his four overs which is the 2nd most runs conceded by any player in a T20I for Australia. Andrew Tye yielded 64 runs in the Auckland T20I against New Zealand earlier this year.
84 – Aaron Finch’s 84 is the 2nd highest individual score by a captain in an unsuccessful T20I chase. Steven Smith’s 90 in the 2015 Cardiff T20I is the highest T20I score by a captain coming in an unsuccessful chase. Australia lost that 2015 T20I to England by a mere 5-run margin.
86 – The 86-run partnership between Aaron Finch and Aston Agar is the 3rd highest T20I partnership for the 6th wicket and the 4th biggest stand for the 6th and lower wicket in this format.
Mike Hussey and Cameron White shared an unbeaten 101-run stand in the 2010 WT20 game against Sri Lanka while Kushal and Thisara Perera put on 97 against Bangladesh during this year’s Nidahas Trophy game for the 6th wicket. Paul Collingwood and Michael Yardy had a 91-run stand in 2007 The Oval T20I against Windies for the 7th wicket.
221/5 – England’s total of 221/5 in this game is their 2nd highest total in the T20I format. Their highest was 230/8 which came while chasing against South Africa in the 2016 WT20 game.
England’s 221/5 is also the 2nd highest total in the T20I matches hosted by England. The highest was 248/6 by Australia in the 2013 Southampton T20I against the hosts.
