177 West Indies' margin of victory, their biggest against Bangladesh, and their sixth biggest overall. For Bangladesh, this is their seventh-worst loss by runs. Their largest defeat remains a 233-run loss to Pakistan in 2000.

16 Number of times that Bangladesh have been bowled out for 100 or less in an ODI innings, more than any other team. Next highest on the list are Zimbabwe (12) and Sri Lanka (11). The lowest score that Bangladesh have been bowled out for (twice) is 58, once against India earlier this year, and famously against West Indies in the 2011 World Cup.

13 Number of runs for which Bangladesh lost their last seven wickets. This is Bangladesh's second worst seven-wicket collapse in their ODI history. The fewest runs for which they have lost seven wickets is eight, which happened against India in June 2014. The worst ever seven-wicket collapse in all ODIs is by Zimbabwe, when they collapsed from 124-3 to 127-all-out against Sri Lanka, in an innings where each batsman from No. 6 onwards scored a duck.

10 Number of batsmen who did not get to double figures during Bangladesh's innings. Bangladesh has faced this ignominy once before, against South Africa during the 2011 World Cup. Overall, there have been 15 such instances in ODI cricket, including two of all 11 players making single digit scores, by Canada and Zimbabwe, both against Sri Lanka.

52.9 % of Bangladesh's runs scored by Tamim Iqbal during his innings of 37, out of the team's total of 70. This is the second highest % of team runs scored by a Bangladesh batsman when the team has been bowled out. The highest such % is 54.8, also by Tamim, when he scored 125 out of Bangladesh's total of 228 against England at Dhaka in 2010.

5 Number of Man of the Match awards won by Sunil Narine in only 51 ODIs. His countrymen, Joel Garner, Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh have also won only five MoM awards each despite playing 98, 176 and 205 ODIs respectively. However, this is probably partly down to the fact that MoM awards were not always given during the early ODIs. Among West Indians with at least 5 MoM awards, Narine has the fifth best matches/award ratio, 10.2. West Indian players who won MoM awards more frequently than Narine are Viv Richards (31 MoM awards in 187 ODIs), Gordon Greenidge (20 in 128), Desmond Haynes (25 in 238) and Brian Lara (30 in 295).

58 Number of runs scored by Chris Gayle in the second ODI, from 67 balls. This is the lowest score by a batsman who has played at least 60 balls and hit five or more sixes in an ODI innings. Chris Gayle has three of the eight lowest such scores, also featuring second and seventh on the list. Hansie Cronje's 52 off 53 balls against Pakistan at East London in 1998, is the lowest ODI score for a batsman who has played at least 50 balls and hit at least five sixes.

2 Number of 40-plus scored scored made by Gayle in his last 25 ODI innings. Apart from the 58 in this game and his 109 versus Sri Lanka at Kingston in June 2013, the top score from his other 23 innings is 39. Gayle has scored only 465 runs during this period at a dismal average of 18.60 and an unlikely strike rate of 78.15.

the main problem with bangladesh team is that they are always in a hurry...they know only two thin one to block and secondly attack nothing in between singles and twos are as important as boundries...when they post a decent total their boling looses sting.....icc has given them test status in a hurry....their test status should be revoked and given to irish team....bangladesh should play intercontinental cup...to regain test spot

Those making the MoM awards always favour the batsmen, In the recently concluded CPL, Narine bowled a maiden wicket superover to win the match and in another game bowled a world record tying 4 overs for 3 runs. Both times the award was given to a batsman who made a run of the mill fifty. The maiden superover was possibly the first ever.

16 times BD bowled out for less than 100 suggest lack of quality batsmen in the team. None of their best players have a good average and strike rate on par with other test teams..
