New Zealand completed a whitewash in the 3-match ODI series against Bangladesh who continues to look for their maiden win against the Black Caps in New Zealand. The hosts, who batted first after losing the toss, posted 330/6 in their 50 overs as Ross Taylor (69), Henry Nicholls (64) and Tom Latham (59) scored fifties. Bangladesh were five down for just 61 runs on the board before Sabbir Rahman scored a century by batting with Mohammad Saifuddin (44) and Mehidy Hasan Miraz (37) to take them to 242/10.
All the major stats and numbers that were recorded during the final game of the 3-match ODI series:
Taylor goes past Fleming:
8026 – Ross Taylor became the leading run-getter in the ODI format for New Zealand. Taylor surpassed Stephen Fleming’s 8,007 runs for the Black Caps. Fleming had aggregated 8037 runs in ODI cricket including 30 runs for the ICC World XI.
203 – Ross Taylor completed 8,000 ODI runs in 203 innings and became the 4th quickest to the milestone. Only Virat Kohli (175 innings), AB de Villiers (182 innings) and Sourav Ganguly (200 innings) got to 8,000 ODI runs quicker than Taylor.
Southee stars on comeback:
6/65 – Tim Southee’s 6/65 is the most expensive 6-wicket haul in ODI cricket. Waqar Younis against Australia in 2001 and Ashish Nehra against Sri Lanka in 2005 had figures of 6/59 which were the previous most expensive 6-fers in the ODI format.
14 – Tim Southee is the 14th player to claim multiple 6-wicket hauls in the ODI format. He is the 3rd from New Zealand with two 6-fers in ODIs after Shane Bond and Tim Southee.
Sabbir rescues Bangladesh after early blows:
4 – Sabbir Rahman became only the 4th Bangladesh player to score a century in the ODI format while batting at No.6 or a lower position. Alok Kapali (115 vs India in 2008 Asia Cup), Mahmudullah (102* vs New Zealand in CT 2017) and Nasir Hossain (100 vs Pakistan in 2011) are the other three players with an ODI century for Bangladesh at No.6.
181 – Runs aggregated by Bangladesh after the loss of their 5th wicket; the most they scored after being five down in an ODI. Bangladesh scored 175 in the 2005 Canterbury ODI against Australia after they were 75/5.
A tough series for the Bangladesh openers:
3 – The three runs scored by Liton Das in this series are the joint 2nd fewest by any opening batsman in an ODI series/tournament (Min: 3 innings). Tom Latham aggregated two runs across three games while opening the innings during the home ODI series against South Africa in 2016.
Zimbabwe’s Craig Evans against New Zealand in 1996 and Bangladesh’s Mohammad Ashraful against Pakistan in 2003 also aggregated three runs across three innings.
10 – Total runs from opening partnerships for Bangladesh in this series; the 2nd fewest for them in an ODI series/tournament of three or more games. Their opening stands aggregated 8 runs during the 3-match home ODI series against Pakistan in 2011. Overall, their ten runs are the joint 4th fewest for any team in an ODI series/tournament.
13 – The Bangladesh openers’ aggregate of 13 runs in this series is the lowest for any team in an ODI series/tournament where they played at least three games. They surpassed their own lowest of 25 runs during the Asia Cup in 1988 where they aggregated 25 runs from three games.
A collective batting effort:
330/6 – New Zealand’s total of 330/6 is the 2nd highest ODI total where no individual crossed 70 runs. Ross Taylor’s 69 is the highest individual score for the Kiwis in this game. Australia racked up 341/8 against the Windies in 2008 where the highest individual score was only 66.
93 – Runs Musafizur Rahman conceded in his ten overs; the 3rd most by any player in an ODI for Bangladesh. Shaiful Islam conceded 97 runs against England and 95 runs against Pakistan across 25 days in 2010.
