Mushfiqur Rahim walked out to bat at No.4 after his team lost two wickets in the opening over and saw his senior partner Tamim Iqbal retire hurt a couple of overs later. But Rahim stabilized the innings along with Mohammad Mithun as the pair not only rescued Bangladesh but also yielded runs at a quick pace. Mithun’s departure meant yet another collapse for the Bangla boys but the former skipper stood throughout the innings and played a career-best knock of 144 to help the team finish on 261.
All the stats and numbers that Mushfiqur Rahim recorded during his gritty innings:
1 – Mushfiqur’s 144 is the highest individual score by a Bangladesh player in Asia Cup breaking his own record of 117 which he scored in 2014 against India. Thus, he became the first player to score multiple tons for Bangladesh in the tournament.
55.17 – His innings of 144 accounted for 55.17% of Bangladesh’s total. This is the highest individual contribution in an ODI inning for Bangladesh. The previous highest was 54.83% by Tamim Iqbal when he scored 125 runs out of Bangladesh’s 228 against England in the 2010 Dhaka ODI game.
55.17 – The contribution of 55.17% by Mushfiqur is also the highest individual contribution in an innings in the Asia Cup. The previous highest was 52.03% by Amjad Ali of UAE when he scored 77 out of 148 in the 2008 edition against Sri Lanka.
144 – Mushfiqur’s 144 is the 2nd highest score by a Bangladesh player in ODI cricket behind Tamim Iqbal’s 154 against Zimbabwe in 2009.
144 – Rahim’s inning is also the highest individual score in Asia Cup against Sri Lanka going past Fawad Alam’s unbeaten 114 in the final of the 2014 edition.
The 144-run knock is also the highest ODI score by a Bangladesh player against Sri Lanka going past Tamim’s 127 during the last year’s ODI in Dambulla.
183 – The 144-run knock by Rahim is the joint 2nd highest individual score in the history of Asia Cup. Virat Kohli’s 183-run innings against Pakistan in 2012 tops this list. Younis Khan also scored 144 against Hong Kong during the 2004 edition of the tournament.
