Josh Hazlewood's superb unbeaten 32 off 50 balls is the highest score by Australia's number eleven batsman against India in Tests.

Mitchell Johnson's second half-century against India is his 10th in Tests. His magnificent 88 off 93 balls is his highest score against India.

The innings is Mitchell's fourth highest in Tests -- his career-best being 123 not out vs South Africa at Cape Town in 2008-09.

Mitchell Starc (52 off 59 balls) has posted his fourth fifty in Tests -- his second against India.

Starc's highest knock in Tests is his 99 vs India at Mohali in March 2013.

Starc became the first number nine Australian player to register a half-century vs India at Brisbane. Damien Fleming's unbeaten 71 vs England in November 1998 is the highest by an Australian number nine batsman at this venue.

Australia (505) have posted their first total of 500 or more against India at Brisbane, bettering the 382 for eight wickets declared in 1947-48.
