'Unbelievable stats' make Australia-India ODI series 'best of all time'

Sydney, Nov 4 (ANI): India and Australia have set a new benchmark during their record-breaking one-day series, with a combined total of 3274 runs scored between them, where India won 3-2.

According to The Daily Telegraph, despite losing the seven-match series 3-2 (two games were washed out), Australia narrowly outscored the home side by 12 runs.

Rohit Sharma's 491 was the most runs in a bilateral series whereas Ishant Sharma's match-losing 48th over, which cost 30 runs, was the equal fifth most expensive over of all time, the report said.

Glenn Maxwell's 18-ball half-century was the equal second fastest of all time, behind Sanath Jayasuriya's 17-ball effort, the report added.

Rohit Sharma's 209 was the second-highest individual ODI score, the report further said.

Australia has now lost the five highest successful run chases and they've been involved in the top eight chases, but only have two wins, according to the report.

There were 107 sixes and 345 fours hit in the series, the report mentioned. (ANI)
