Stats - Afif and Mehidy's 79.45% contribution to Bangladesh's cause

For the first time, a team won an ODI despite their top six batters scoring less than 30 runs

0 Previous instances of a team winning an ODI with their top six batters aggregating as low as 30 runs, the tally of Bangladesh's top six on Wednesday. Before Wednesday, 41 runs were the lowest aggregate for a winning side's top six batters in an ODI - by Pakistan - versus Zimbabwe in 1997 and Australia in 2000.
171 Runs Bangladesh needed at the fall of the sixth wicket. These are most target runs successfully chased by a team in ODIs from six down. The previous highest was 164 runs by Australia against South Africa in 2002.
174* Partnership runs between Afif Hossain and Mehidy Hasan Miraz, the second-highest stand for the seventh or a lower wicket in ODI history. The highest is 177 by England's Jos Buttler and Adil Rashid for the seventh wicket against New Zealand in 2015.
45 Bangladesh's total when they lost their sixth wicket. There are only four previous instances of a team winning an ODI from six down at 45 or worse. The lowest is 38 by Australia against West Indies in 1996 while chasing 173. Only once before did Bangladesh win an ODI from six down inside 100 runs - they were on 95 against Scotland in 1999.
79.45 Percentage of Bangladesh's total accounted by Afif and Mehidy. It is the highest contribution by a team's batters below the No.6 position in an ODI innings. The 79.08 % by England was the previous highest as their batters below No.6 collected 155 runs during the 196 all-out against Australia in 2018.
1 Afif Hossain's unbeaten 93 is the highest for Bangladesh while batting at No.7 and lower in ODI cricket. Mehidy Hasan's 81* is second on the list, ahead of Mahmudullah's 75* while batting at No.8 against Zimbabwe in 2013.
81* Mehidy, with his 81*, recorded the highest individual score in a successful ODI chase while batting at No.8 and lower. Heath Streak's 79* was the previous highest, coming against New Zealand in 2001 in Auckland. The 93* by Afif is also the fourth-highest score by a No.7 in a successful ODI chase.
