Bangladesh boosted their chances of making it to the semi-final with a record run-chase against the Windies. Fifties from Shai Hope (96), Evin Lewis (70) and Shimron Hetmyer (50) powered the Windies to 321/8. In response, the Bangladesh openers gave a good start before Shakib Al Hasan’s unbeaten 124-run knock anchored the chase. Shakib hit the boundaries regularly to put his side well ahead of the required rate. Liton Das accompanied him with a stroke-filled knock as he struck eight fours and four sixes in his unbeaten 69-ball 94. The duo added 189 runs for the 4th wicket in just 22.3 overs as Bangladesh completed the chase in 41.3 overs only.

All the statistical highlights from Bangladesh’s maiden World Cup win over Windies:

The record chase by the Bangla boys:

322 – Bangladesh’s 322-run chase in this game is the 2nd highest in the history of World Cup. Ireland chased down 328 against England in Bangalore during the 2011 edition.

322 – The 322-run chase is also the highest in the ODI format for Bangladesh. They surpassed the 319-run chase against Scotland in the 2015 World Cup. Bangladesh is also only the 2nd team to successfully chase 300+ on two instances in the CWC. Ireland has three such chases in the World Cup history.

41.3 – Overs Bangladesh needed to chase the target of 322; the 4th fewest by any team to chase a 300+ target in ODI cricket. India chased 321 against Sri Lanka in the 2012 CB series in 36.4 overs while Sri Lanka needed 37.3 overs to gun down 322 against England in the 2006 Leeds ODI. During the 2016 ODI at The Oval, England took 40.1 overs to chase the target of 308 in a 42-over game.

2 – Bangladesh’s successful chase in this game is only the 2nd 250+ chase in the World Cups as early as 42nd over. India chased down the target of 260 against Ireland in 2015 in only 36.5 overs.

Shakib and the all-round doubles:

1 – Shakib Al Hasan now has the joint-most instances of a century and 2+ wickets in the same ODI, the double of 50+ runs and 2+ wickets in the same ODI and also the double of 50+ runs and a wicket in the same CWC game.

Bangladesh’s record winning streak:

5 – Bangladesh registered their 5th consecutive ODI win against the Windies; all coming while chasing a target. They have won nine of their 11 ODIs against the Caribbean team since the start of 2018.

Hope continues his streak against Bangladesh:

6 – Shai Hope has recorded fifty-plus scores in each of his last six ODI innings against Bangladesh. Unfortunately, previous five of those six resulted in the defeats.

The record stand:

189* – The unbeaten 189-run partnership between Shakib Al Hasan and Liton Das is Bangladesh’s highest for any wicket in the World Cup. They surpassed the 142-run stand added by Shakib and Mushfiqur Rahim against South Africa in their first game of the tournament.

189* – The partnership of 189* between Shakib and Liton is the 2nd highest 4th wicket partnership in the World Cups. Michael Clarke and Brad Hodge shared 204 runs against the Netherlands in the 2007 edition.

Hetmyer’s blitz and Gayle’s duck:

25 – The 25-ball fifty by Shimron Hetmyer is the fastest by any player in the World Cup against Bangladesh. Tom Moody scored a fifty in only 28 balls against the Bangla Tigers in the 1999 edition. Overall, Hetmyer’s half-century is the 4th quickest known fifty for the Windies in the World Cup as three players have got a CWC fifty in exactly 23 balls for them.

13 – Chris Gayle’s 13-ball duck is the 2nd longest duck in the World Cup for the Windies. Wavell Hinds was dismissed for a 16-ball duck against South Africa in the 2003 CWC opener.
