Bangladesh ended the Windies tour on a high by winning the T20I series after being 0-1 down to follow-up their victory in the 3-match ODI series. Liton Das’ 32-ball 61 at the top backed by contributions from the middle-order helped Bangladesh post 184/5 in their 20 overs. The visiting team’s bowlers kept the Windies batsmen under control and kept taking wickets. Andre Russell sent tremors into the Bangladesh camp with six sixes during his 21-ball 47. He got out when the hosts needed 50 from 17 balls just when rain entered the scene and Bangladesh were declared winners based on DLS.
All the major stats and numbers recorded during Bangladesh’s win in the T20I series:
2 – Only the 2nd time Bangladesh have won a T20I series with more than one game. They defeated Ireland 3-0 in the 3-match away T20I series in 2012.
This is only the 5th T20I series/tournament (including one-off matches) that Bangladesh have won thus far. Their last was in 2015 when they defeated Pakistan in the one-off match at home.
5 – Windies have lost five out of the six T20I series comprising of three and more matches they played since winning the World T20 2016. They defeated Afghanistan 3-0 in the 3-match home series last year.
13.07 – The run rate of 13.07 during the 61-run opening stand between Liton Das and Tamim Iqbal is the joint highest in any 50+ partnership for Bangladesh in T20I cricket. They recorded a 61-run stand in exactly 4.4 overs with Soumya Sarkar in the WT20 2016 game against Oman for the first wicket.
24 – Liton Das’ 24-ball fifty in this game is the joint 2nd fastest fifty in the T20I format for Bangladesh. Mohammad Ashraful scored a 20-ball fifty in the WT20 2007 match against Windies while Mushfiqur Rahim also scored a fifty in 24 balls against Sri Lanka during the Nidahas Trophy this year.
47 – Andre Russell’s 47 runs are the 2nd fewest in an International innings that included as many as six sixes. Tom Cooper hit six sixes during his 15-ball 45 against Ireland in the 2014 WT20 game while Afghanistan’s Dawlat Zadran also scored 47* when he hit six sixes against Zimbabwe in the Sharjah ODI earlier this year.
61 – The 61-run stand between Liton Das and Tamim Iqbal is the 7th fifty-run opening stand for Bangladesh in T20I cricket and Tamim has been involved in all six of them. This partnership is also the 2nd highest opening stand for Bangladesh outside Asia behind 62 between Tamim and Ashraful in the Belfast T20I against Ireland in 2012.
184/5 – Bangladesh’s total of 184/5 is their 5th highest total in the T20I format and their 2nd highest outside Asia. Their highest T20I total outside Asia was 190/5 in Belfast T20I against Ireland in 2012.
