Chanderpaul, the scourge of Bangladesh

Shivnarine Chanderpaul gets out of the way of a bouncer WICB

2 Shivnarine Chanderpaul is the second batsman - with a minimum qualification of three innings and 200-plus runs - to remain unbeaten in a Test series. He scored 270 runs from three innings in this series without being dismissed. Jacques Kallis, who made 388 runs from three innings against Zimbabwe in 2001, is the other.

145.9 Chanderpaul's batting average against Bangladesh, which is the highest for any batsman with at least 10 innings against a single country. There are five other batmen who average more than 100 against one opposition under the same constraints. Since 2012, Chanderpaul's batting average against Bangladesh is 624, with innings of 201*, 1, 150*, 85*, 84* and 101*.

11 Chanderpaul became the 11th batsman to score 30 Test hundreds. Among left-handed batsmen, only two others have more centuries - Kumar Sangakkara with 37 and Brian Lara with 34.

67.5 Chanderpaul's batting average since turning 35. Among batsmen who have played at least 20 innings after their 35th birthday, only three have a better batting average - Don Bradman with 105.72, Kumar Sangakkara with 70.53 and Eddie Paynter with 69.38.

1 West Indies have whitewashed only one team besides Bangladesh or Zimbabwe in Test series of two or more matches over the past 28 years. They blanked New Zealand 2-0 in 2012, which was also the only time they won back-to-back Tests against a top-eight side since 2001. Before 2012, West Indies last whitewashed an opposition besides Bangladesh or Zimbabwe in 1986 when they drubbed England 5-0

0 Bangladesh have never lasted 80 overs in the fourth innings of an away Test. The 77.4 overs that they played in St Lucia is their longest batting effort. They have played 80-plus overs in the fourth innings of home Tests on five occasions, never in a win though.

5 Suliemann Benn is the fifth West Indian spinner to take six or more five-wicket hauls. Shane Shillingford, Alf Valentine, Sonny Ramadhin and Lance Gibbs are the others.

3 Kraigg Brathwaite (63), Leon Johnson (66), Darren Bravo (46), Shivnarine Chanderpaul (84*) and Jerome Taylor (40) made it the third time West Indies have had five batsmen scoring 40-plus runs in an innings. They had accomplished this 22 times against India, which is a record for them against a single opposition, and 72 times in all.
