The top stats from the fourth day of the Dhaka Test where India sealed a slim three-wicket win while chasing 145 in the fourth innings.
71* - The partnership between Shreyas Iyer and R Ashwin, the highest for the eighth wicket in a successful fourth-innings chase. The previous highest was 52 between Inzamam-ul-Haq and Rashid Latif against Australia in 1994. The unbeaten 71-run stand is also the fourth-highest for the eighth or a lower wicket in a successful chase.
0 - India's losses in Test cricket against Bangladesh, having won 11 of the 13 matches. Only three teams are unbeaten against an opponent, having played more Tests - 20 by Sri Lanka against Zimbabwe, 17 by New Zealand against Zimbabwe and 14 by South Africa against Bangladesh.
49 - Percentage of India's target knocked off by the Iyer and Ashwin partnership. It is the highest percentage of target added by the last three wickets in a successful fourth-innings chase. The previous highest was 48.1% by New Zealand against West Indies in Dunedin in 1980, when 50 runs came for the last three wickets in a 104-run chase.
74 - India's total when they lost their seventh wicket. Only two teams have been successful in the fourth innings after losing their seventh wicket at a lower score - 54 by New Zealand chasing 104 against West Indies in 1980 and 59 by Pakistan in pursuit of 65 against England in 1984.
42* - Ashwin's score in the fourth innings in Mirpur, the highest by a No. 9 or lower during a successful chase in Test cricket. The previous highest was 40* by Winston Benjamin while batting at No. 10 against Pakistan in 1988 in Bridgetown.
71 - Runs scored by India after the fall of seventh wicket, their second-most in a successful fourth-innings chase. India had added 94 runs for their last three wickets against Australia in 2010 during a one-wicket win in Mohali. The 71 runs by India are also the tenth-highest by any team after losing their seventh wicket in a Test chase.
145 - India's target in Mirpur, the third-highest successful chase for India in Tests in the last ten years. They won chasing 328 against Australia in Brisbane in 2021 and a 155 while also chasing against Australia, in the 2013 Mohali Test.
