After a tough home ODI series against India, the New Zealand team started the series against Bangladesh with a convincing 8-wicket victory. A collective bowling effort from the hosts saw Bangladesh slump to a mediocre total of 232 which wouldn’t have been possible without crucial knocks from Mohammad Mithun (62) and Mohammad Saifuddin (41). Martin Guptill, who failed in the series against India and got injured, bounced back with an unbeaten 117 to take his team home with 33 balls to spare.
Here are all the major stats and numbers recorded during the first ODI at the McLean Park in Napier:
Taylor bags a couple of New Zealand records:
18 – Ross Taylor now has been unbeaten on 18 occasions during successful run-chases in ODI cricket; the joint-most by any player for New Zealand in this format. Stephen Fleming also remained unbeaten 18 times during successful ODI chases for the Kiwis.
16,038 – Taylor became the first player from New Zealand to aggregate 16,000 runs in international cricket when he reached his individual score of seven runs.
Missing out on the fifties:
11 – Ross Taylor now has been unbeaten on 11 occasions in the 40s in International cricket including six times in the ODI format. Only MS Dhoni (15) and Michael Bevan (13) have more unbeaten scores in the 40s than Taylor in International cricket. Shoaib Malik and Steve Waugh also have 11 such scores each across all formats.
Full count for Bangladesh:
22/22 – Bangladesh has lost each of the 22 international matches they played against New Zealand in the latter’s backyard. Both the teams faced off in 11 ODIs, 7 Tests and 4 T20Is in New Zealand with the hosts coming out victorious in all those matches.
A decent comeback from Bangladesh:
84 – The 84-run partnership between Mohammad Mithun and Mohammad Saifuddin is Bangladesh’s highest 8th wicket partnership in ODI cricket. The duo surpassed the unbeaten 70-run stand also against New Zealand by Khaled Mashud and Mohammad Rafique in the 2003 CWC.
The pair of Shakib Al Hasan and Mashrafe Mortaza added 97 runs for the 9th wicket in the 2008 Multan ODI against Pakistan. It is only higher than Mithun and Saifuddin’s 84 for the 8th or lower wicket for Bangladesh in ODIs.
138 – Runs aggregated by Bangladesh in this game after losing their 6th wicket; the most by them in an ODI. Bangladesh’s previous highest runs in an ODI after losing six wickets is 137 runs also against New Zealand in the 2010 Dunedin ODI.
A big knock for Guptill:
117* – Martin Guptill’s unbeaten 117 is the 2nd highest individual score for New Zealand against Bangladesh in the ODI format. Only Tom Latham (137 in Christchurch, 2016) has a higher ODI score for the Kiwis against the Tigers. Among Bangladesh players, only Mahmudullah (128* in 2015 CWC) has a higher score against the Black Caps after Guptill.
An easy win for the Kiwis:
233 – Only the 5th time New Zealand chased down a target of 233 or higher by losing only two or fewer wickets in an ODI. They successfully chased down 237 on three different instances by losing only two wickets and registered a 10-wicket win while chasing a target of 236 against Zimbabwe in 2016.
