Australia squared the 5-match ODI series against India with a record run-chase at the PCA Stadium in Mohali, a happy hunting venue for the Aussies. India got off to a flyer after electing to bat first as Shikhar Dhawan (143) and Rohit Sharma (95) added 193 runs for the first wicket helping India to finish with 358/9.
Peter Handscomb (117) and Usman Khawaja (91) added 192 for the 3rd wicket after they lost two wickets for 12 runs. Ashton Turner walked to bat at No.6 with 130 needed from 83 balls. He alone struck an unbeaten 84 from 43 balls as the Aussies finished the chase with 13 deliveries and four wickets to spare.
Here are all the major stats and numbers recorded during the high-scoring affair in Mohali:
A record chase by Australians:
359 – The run-chase of 359 by Australia is their first ever successful chase of 350+ and also the 5th highest successful chase by any team in ODI history. The previous highest chase by the Aussies was 334 against England in the 2011 Sydney ODI.
359 – This is also the first instance of India losing an ODI despite posting 350+. They lost by three runs against Australia while chasing 351 as they were bundled out for 347 runs during the 2009 Hyderabad ODI.
India lost to Pakistan in the 2006 Peshawar ODI having made 328/10; their previous highest ODI total in a defeat while batting first. Pakistan were 311/7 after 47 overs and won the game by six runs.
The previous highest successful run-chase against India in a completed ODI was 322 by Pakistan also at the PCA Stadium in Mohali.
Dhawan and Rohit efforts go in vain:
143 – Shikhar Dhawan’s 143 is the 3rd highest ODI score by an Indian in a game which they lost while chasing. Rohit Sharma scored an unbeaten 171 in the 2016 Perth ODI also against Australia while Sachin Tendulkar scored 146 in the 2000 Jodhpur ODI against Zimbabwe. There are three other scores of 143 or more by Indians in unsuccessful ODI chase.
193 – The 193-run partnership between Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma is the joint-highest opening stand in an ODI defeat for India. Overall, this is the joint 6th highest opening stand in ODIs in the losing cause. This is also India’s highest partnership for any wicket in an ODI defeat at home.
Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly pair added 193 for the first wicket in the 2001 Johannesburg ODI against South Africa. India finished with 279/5 in their 50 overs, a total which was chased down by the hosts with five wickets and ten balls to spare.
Dhawan and Rohit bag records:
57 – Innings Rohit Sharma needed for completing 3000 ODI runs in India; the joint fewest innings for 3000 ODI runs in a specific country by any player.
239 – Innings Shikhar Dhawan needed to complete 10000 runs in List A cricket; the 3rd fewest among the 108 players with this milestone. Virat Kohli (219) and AB de Villiers (225) are the only players to reach 10000 List A runs quicker than Dhawan.
A rare ODI:
2 – This is only the 2nd ODI game in the history where both the teams had a centurion and a player getting out in the 90s. The other such instance in this format was recorded during the Zimbabwe-Ireland ODI in Hobart during the 2015 CWC.
An embarrassing record for Finch:
1 – Aaron Finch became the first Australian captain to bag multiple ducks in a bilateral ODI series. Three Australian captains had more than one duck across four different ODI tournaments of ten or more matches.
A first with the bat for Bumrah:
2 – Jasprit Bumrah became only the 2nd Indian No.11 batsman to hit a six on the last ball of the team innings in ODI cricket. Venkatesh Prasad was the first having cleared the ropes on the only ball he faced like Bumrah during the 2000 ICC CT knockout game also against Australia.
100 – Bumrah’s six in this game was his first ever six in Indian colours. Incidentally, this match was his 100th in International cricket. Among the Indian players, only Ishant Sharma (184) played over 100 International matches without ever hitting a six.
A first for India without Dhoni:
54 – For the first time since MS Dhoni’s debut, India featured in an ODI without him in the playing XI against Australia. Dhoni played all the previous 54 ODIs that India played against Australia that too as a wicketkeeper. The last India-Australia ODI to not feature Dhoni was during the 2004 Tri-Series held in the Netherlands.
