169 Runs Denesh Ramdin scored in this ODI, the highest by a West Indies batsman at home, beating Desmond Haynes' 152 not out against India in Georgetown, way back in 1989. This is also the second-highest ODI score by a batsman in West Indies. Upul Tharanga's unbeaten 174 against India in Kingston in the tri-series last year is the highest by a batsman in West Indies.

11 Sixes hit by Ramdin in this match, the highest by any batsman in ODIs in West Indies, beating Chris Gayle's nine sixes against New Zealand in Kingston in 2012. Ramdin's 11 sixes are the second highest by a West Indies batsman in an ODI, just one short of Xavier Marshall's 12 sixes against Canada in 2008. Ramdin's 11 sixes in this match are also the highest by a wicketkeeper in an innings, beating MS Dhoni's 10 sixes against Sri Lanka in Jaipur in 2005.

258 Runs added for the third wicket by Darren Bravo and Ramdin, the highest by a West Indies pair for any wicket. They beat the 226-run partnership between Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Carl Hooper for the fourth wicket against South Africa in East London in 1999. This is also the highest third-wicket partnership in ODIs beating the 238-run stand between Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers against Pakistan in Johannesburg in 2013. This was also the highest partnership for any wicket against Bangladesh beating the 250-run stand between Andrew Strauss and Jonathan Trott at Edgbaston in 2010.

338 Runs scored by West Indies in this match - their highest total at home in ODIs, beating the 337 they scored against Zimbabwe in St George's last year. This was also the fifth-highest score posted by West Indies in an ODI.

8 Scores of 150 or more by No. 4 batsmen in ODIs, including Ramdin's in this match. His 169 is now the third highest by a No. 4 after Viv Richards' 189 not out against England at Old Trafford in 1984 and 181 against Sri Lanka in Karachi in the 1987 World Cup. Of the eight scores of 150 or more by No. 4 batsmen, five have been by West Indies batsmen.

11 Number of instances, including this match, when two West Indies batsmen have hit centuries in the same ODI. The last such instance came against New Zealand earlier this year in Hamilton, when Kirk Edwards and Dwayne Bravo hit centuries.

19 Sixes hit by West Indies batsmen - the highest they have ever hit in an ODI. Their previous highest was 14 sixes, which they hit against Canada in 2008. This was also the most sixes hit against Bangladesh in an ODI, beating the 16 that Australia struck in Dhaka in 2011.

2 ODI centuries by West Indies wicketkeepers including Ramdin's in this match. The previous one was also hit by him, against England in North Sound earlier this year.

241 Runs scored by wicketkeepers in this match - the third-highest total runs scored by the designated wicketkeepers of both teams in an ODI. The highest such aggregate came in a match between India and Sri Lanka in 2005, when India's wicketkeeper MS Dhoni got 183 and Sri Lanka's Kumar Sangakkara hit 138, taking the total by wicketkeepers in that match to 321 runs.

13 Number of consecutive ODIs Bangladesh have now played without winning. The last time they won was against New Zealand in Fatullah last year. Click here for the list of the longest winless streaks in ODIs.

i always thought ramdin was a bit lucky to be in the side because he wasnt making enough runs in test cricket ,thats what i gauge him on and i agree with sir vivian richards a couple of years ago when he criticizied him ,if he was playing for australia he woudnt be in the team ,hes had a second chance and has taken it ,good luck to him. now that he is capt. all eyes will be on him.

Ramdin's 169 also equals Brian Lara's highest ODI score

Well I was at the game and hats off to Ramdin who batted very sensibly and accelerated well after getting his eye in. Remember Windies were 12 -2 and he and Bravo had to rebuild. Of the two centuries Ramdin's was the most classy - whatever that means! Yes Bangladesh are not the strongest of sides but as anyone who has played any reasonable level of cricket will tell you, a hundred is a hundred and a big hundred is still a big one - you got to get there and concentrate on the job no matter what the opposition is like.

People listen to yourselves, ramdin scored a classy hundred, pls tell me how u guys can judge a mediocre century from a top class one? A hundred is whenever done still a century no matter what opposition it comes against, ramdin at under19 level was a good batsman, coming into the West Indian I think he probably focused alittle too much on his keeping and more over forgot his all rounding abilities. I think the management has a lot to do with it as well, ramdin batted very low down the order for many many games which I think daunted his confidence. But it's good to see he's back to good form in West Indian colors and I'm very sure ramdin will evolved into a much more mature player in the game and continue to score big runs as his career unravels for the future.

Ramdin has been in terrific form since he returned to the team after being dropped for 2 years. He is averaging 42 in tests since return but in T20 many would miss the fact that his SR is about 140 in recent matches. I hope that someone in the IPL notices this as he deserves a chance as a batsman who keeps well and not a wicketkeeper who can bat.

Ramdins great form will be a real asset to windes opens up a new way the team can be structured in each game against diff opp. Sometimes they can play extra bowler since he playing as real batsman now

Ramdin has been one of the best batsman in the WI over the last 2 years or so, ahead of so called star batsmen like Gayle, Lil B, Samuels, and the like. And it's not like his technique has changed, just his temperament. Others should learn form him.

never under estimate him rank no.5 for best wicket keeper batsman

Congrats to Ramdin. As we say Runs on the Board is Runs on the Board. I dont"t see anyone looking at Tendulkar's or Lara"s 100s and saying well they really only scored X amount of 100s cuz some were against the minnow teams. Runs on the board is Runs on the Board. If he didint score the 100 ya"ll would be saying "He couldnt even score a 100 against Bangladesh" So lets applaud the man. Would love to see the WICB take players like Pooran and Nuture them in all areas. The world keeps claiming that they want a strong WI team but they really dont cuz they know the dominant force we can be. Just watch and see as soon as WI starts to win more games.

Ramdin is on the right track.Not simply satisfied with 20s and 30s.Hopefully he can display the same against better teams.
