2 Number of players to score an ODI hundred while batting at No. 8 or lower, including Mehidy Hasan Miraz in Mirpur. Simi Singh was the first player with the feat, who also scored an unbeaten 100 against South Africa in 2021 while batting at No.8.
202 Runs added by Bangladesh after the fall of the sixth wicket. Only four teams have added more runs for the final four wickets in an ODI. The highest is 213 by Australia against New Zealand in 2017. The previous highest for Bangladesh was 174 against Afghanistan earlier this year in Chattogram.
148 Partnership between Mehidy and Mahmudullah for the seventh wicket. It is the joint third highest by any pair for the seventh or a lower wicket in ODIs. The highest is 177 between Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid against New Zealand in 2015, while Mehidy shared an unbeaten 174 with Afif Hossain against Afghanistan earlier this year.
The 148-run stand between Mehidy and Mahmudullah is now the highest for Bangladesh for any wicket against India. The previous highest was 133 between Anamul Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim, for the third wicket in Fatullah in 2014. The unbroken eighth-wicket stand of 138 between Justin Kemp and Andrew Hall in 2006 in Cape Town was the previous highest against India in ODIs for the seventh or lower wicket.
14.08 Run rate of the partnership between Mehidy and Nasum Ahmed, the second-fastest 50-plus stand for Bangladesh in ODIs. Their only stand to have come at a quicker rate is the 54-run one between Mushfiqur and Tamim Iqbal, it came off 3.2 overs at 16.2 against West Indies in 2018.
298 Runs scored by Mehidy while batting at No. 8 this year. These are the most ODI runs by a batter in a calendar year while batting at No.8 or lower since Heath Streak's 429 runs in 2001. Overall, he is sixth on that list.
