Bangladesh clinched the ODI series 2-1 with a dominating effort in the deciding final ODI game at the new ODI venue Sylhet. The hosts restricted Windies to just 198/9 despite an unbeaten 108 from Shai Hope opening the innings. The 25-year-old came to his team’s rescue like in the previous game as he hit nine fours and a six during his 131-ball stay. Bangladesh chased down the total comfortably as they reached the target in 38.3 overs for the loss of two wickets.

All the major stats and numbers recorded during the series-decider in Sylhet:

Another solo effort from Shai:

108* – Shai Hope’s unbeaten 108 is the 3rd highest individual score in an ODI inning where no other batsman got into the 20s. John Davidson made 111 for Canada in the 2003 CWC game against Windies when his team got out for 202 with the second highest individual score was 19.

Marlon Samuels was only Windies batsman to score over 20 in the 2015 Kandy ODI against Sri Lanka where he made 110* in the 36-over game where they finished with 206/9.

108* – Hope’s 108 is the 2nd lowest unbeaten ODI score by an opener after batting full 50 overs in the last ten years. David Hemp made 102* for Bermuda against Kenya in the 2009 Potchefstroom ODI.

2004 – Hope is the first Windies opener to be unbeaten in an ODI while batting first for 50 overs in the last 14 years. The last such Windies opener was Chris Gayle in the 2004 Johannesburg ODI against South Africa.

In the last five years, only twice an opener from Windies remained unbeaten in any ODI inning and both those efforts were by Shai Hope in this series. He was unbeaten on 146 in a successful chase in the previous ODI.

A special game for the hosts:

200 – The Sylhet International Cricket Stadium became the 200th venue to host an ODI game. This is the 8th venue to host an ODI in Bangladesh.

200Mashrafe Mortaza became the first player to feature in 200 ODI matches for Bangladesh. He now has featured in 202 matches in ODI career including the two appearances for Asia XI in 2007.

4/29 – Mehidy Hasan Miraz’s bowling figures of 4/29 are the best for a Bangladesh spinner in an ODI while opening with the ball. Abdur Razzaq’s 4/39 in the 2009 Roseau ODI against the Windies were the previous best for a Bangladesh spinner while opening the bowling.

A record-breaking series for Hope:

297 – Runs Shai Hope aggregated in this series; the most by a Windies player in a 3-match bilateral ODI series. Hope, thus surpassed Denesh Ramdin who scored 277 runs during the 2014 home ODI series also against Bangladesh.

Hope’s 297 runs are also the second most in a 3-match bilateral ODI series defeat. Only Brendan Taylor (310 runs) in the 2011 home ODI series against New Zealand scored more runs.

297 – Shai Hope has a batting average of 297 in this ODI series having been dismissed only once. This is the 6th highest batting average recorded by any player in an ODI series/tournament (Excluding Aravinda de Silva’s 334 runs without getting out in the 1996 Singer World Series).
