2 Opening partnerships in men's ODI history which have been higher than the 292 that Tamim Iqbal and Liton Das put together. Two of the top three have come against Zimbabwe: in Bulawayo in 2018, Pakistan's Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq added 304. The record, though, belongs to West Indies' John Campbell and Shai Hope who added 365 together against Ireland in Dublin last year. Five of the six highest opening partnerships have happened since January 2017.
0 Partnerships for Bangladesh in ODI cricket that have yielded more runs than the 292 in this game. The next best for any wicket is 224, by Mahmudullah and Shakib Al Hasan for the fifth wicket against New Zealand in the 2017 Champions Trophy. Bangladesh's next best for the first wicket is a relatively puny 170, by Mehrab Hossain and Shahriar Hossain, also against Zimbabwe in 1999.
9 ODI partnerships of over 250 runs which have come at a run rate of more than 7.15, which was the rate at which Das and Iqbal scored their runs. The best run rate for any 250-plus partnership is 8.98, by Sanath Jayasuriya and Tillakaratne Dilshan,who added 286 together in a mere 31.5 overs against England at Headingley in 2006.
43 Instances of both openers scoring centuries in an ODI innings. The last time it happened was less than two months back, when David Warner and Aaron Finch scored hundreds in Australia's chase of 256 against India. For Bangladesh, this was the first such instance, and only the fourth time that any two of their batsmen scored hundreds in an innings.
2 Higher ODI scores in Bangladesh than Das' 176. Shane Watson's 185 not out against Bangladesh in 2011 is the highest, followed by Virat Kohli's 183 against Pakistan. Das' score is the highest in Bangladesh's ODI history, though: their previous best was 158 by Iqbal just three days ago, in the second match of the series.
7.48 Bangladesh's run rate; only once have they batted more than 30 overs at a higher run rate: against West Indies in the 2019 World Cup in Taunton, they scored 322 in 41.3 overs, motoring along at a run rate of 7.75.
14 Sixes in Bangladesh's innings, their highest in ODIs. Their previous best was 11, against West Indies in Dublin in 2019.
