Overview

Green started playing on the powerplay onto his bat, slogging his way to a 19-ball fifty in the fifth over. Green frequently backed away with his outside leg and lustily swung at the ball.

For Australia in T20Is, only David Warner and Glenn Maxwell have struck faster fifty. Tim David also made a quick fifty.
