Bangladesh kick-started their campaign of the Ireland Tri-Nation ODI series as they defeated the Windies by a comfortable 8-wicket margin. The Windies were cruising at 205/2 in the 41st over with Shai Hope scoring a hundred. However, the Bangladesh bowlers bounced back to restrict the inform team to a mere 261/9 on a flat track. The chase was made to look quite easy as Tamim Iqbal (80) and Soumya Sarkar (73) struck fifties while Shakib Al Hasan (61*) also scored one to take his team over the winning line.
All the major stats and numbers recorded during Bangladesh’s first win of the Tri-Series:
262 – The target of 262 chased by Bangladesh is their highest successful chase in ODIs for the loss of two or fewer wickets. They chased down 251 against Pakistan in the 2015 Dhaka ODI which was the only time Bangladesh successfully chased 210+ losing as few as two wickets.
262 – Bangladesh chased down 262 with five overs to spare in this game. This is their 2nd highest successful chase which they achieved with five or more overs to spare. They chased down 287 in only 42.1 overs against Zimbabwe during the last year’s Chattogram ODI.
The first in history:
4 – Shai Hope has hit a century in each of his last four ODI innings as an opener. He is now the first opener in the history of ODI cricket to smash four consecutive hundreds. As many as four players before Hope struck three tons in succession.
A first for Bangladesh:
1 – Each of Bangladesh’s top three batsmen scored in excess of 60 in this game recording the first such instance for the Tigers in ODI cricket. Overall, this is the third time where each of Bangladesh’s top three scored fifties in an ODI inning. The 1999 Dhaka ODI against Zimbabwe and the 2014 Asia Cup against Pakistan are the other two instances.
A Windies record:
47 – Innings Shai Hope has taken for completing 2000 runs in ODI cricket; the fewest by any Windies player and the joint 5th fewest by any player in the World to this milestone. Sir Viv Richards was the previous quickest WI to 2000 ODI runs having reached the milestone in his 48th innings.
Three times the 2nd best:
164.25 – Shai Hope has a batting average of 164.25 across six innings as an opener in ODIs. This is the best average among the 195 players with 500+ ODI runs as an opener. The next best average is of Rohit Sharma (56.47) which is 1/3rd that of Hope’s average.
