Stats highlights from the second T20I between India and Australia
A first series loss at home for India under Kohli
1 This was the first series lost by India at home under Virat Kohli's captaincy across formats across 16 series. Kohli has led India in seven Test series and five ODI series in India, winning all. In his four T20 International assignments at home, he has now won two and drew one (1-1 vs Australia, 2017) before this loss.
4 This was India's fourth bilateral T20 International series loss at home and the first since October 2015 when they lost 2-0 against South Africa. This is India's second consecutive T20I series loss following the 1-2 reversal in New Zealand earlier this month. In the ten rubbers before the twin defeats, India won eight with two ending in 1-1 stalemates (both against Australia).

191 is the joint third highest target successfully chased down against India in T20 Internationals. South Africa chased down 200 in Dharamsala in 2015 followed by Windies' chase of 193 in the semifinals of T20 WC 2016 at the Wankhede sit at the top of the pile while Windies also chased down 191 in the one-off T20I in Kingston in July 2017.
A Maxwell special
3 Number of T20 International centuries for Glenn Maxwell - the joint second most in the format alongside Colin Munro. The only player with more three-figure scores in the shortest format is Rohit Sharma with four. It was Maxwell's first three-figure knock in India in 20-over cricket surpassing the previous best of 90 for Kings XI Punjab against Chennai Super Kings in Cuttack in IPL 2014.
113* by Maxwell is the highest individual score against India in India in T20 Internationals. He became only the second player to hit a hundred in India against the home team after Colin Munro who scored an unbeaten 109 in Rajkot in 2017.

226.66 Maxwell's strike rate against Yuzvendra Chahal - 34 runs off 15 balls including three maximums. Coming into the match, Chahal had dismissed Maxwell five times in 20-over cricket in a span of just 37 balls, including the first T20I in Vizag. Maxwell hit 20 runs off the nine balls he faced from Jasprit Bumrah who had got the better of him six times in 45 balls prior to the game.
22 Sixes hit in the match - 13 by India and nine by Australia, all nine hit by Maxwell. It is the second most number of maximums in a T20 International in India involving the home side after 31 hits over the rope in the Indore T20I against Sri Lanka in 2017. 13 sixes by India is the joint second most for them in a T20I with 21 maximums in the Indore match mentioned above at the top.
223 Boundary fours hit by Virat Kohli in T20 Internationals - the joint most in the format alongside Tillakaratne Dilshan. Kohli became the fifth Indian batsman to hit 50-plus sixes (50) in T20Is after Rohit Sharma (102), Yuvraj Singh (74), Suresh Raina (58) and MS Dhoni (52), who also went past the milestone earlier in the match.
6 Fifty-plus scores for Kohli against Australia in 15 T20I innings against them - the most by a player in the format against an opponent surpassing Kusal Perera's five against Bangladesh in seven innings. Kohli's 584 runs against Australia is the most by player in T20Is against a particular opposition.
18 This is the 18th successive T20I India haven't used a sixth bowling option. The sequence started in India's final league game against Bangladesh in the Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka last year with India winning 11 of these 18 matches.
