Australia's legendary fast bowler Lillee scored an unbeaten 16 in an unsuccessful run chase against West Indies in inaugural One-Day World Cup 1975 final.

3 | Bob Massie 

Bob Massie scored an unbeaten 16 against England in 1972 before Australia suffered a batting collapse in first innings.

Bichel scored a 24-ball 28 against Sri Lanka in 2003 in another unsuccessful run chase.

Overall no.11 record

Pakistan's Mohammad Amir holds the record for only no.11 batter to score half-century in ODIs. Amir scored 28-ball 58 against England in 2016.

Crucial partnership

The unbeaten 47-run partnership between Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc rescued Australia from 148/9 to a respectable total of 195/9. This is 4th highest 10th wicket partnership for Australia in ODIs.

Hazlewood’s highest

While Starc was relatively cautious in his 45-ball 38, Hazlewood scored at a strike rate of 143.75. He hit a four and six in his innings. The 23-run knock is his highest ODI score.
