304 Target chased by Zimbabwe in the first ODI. It is their highest successful target against Bangladesh in ODIs and their joint-third highest chase. Their previous highest successful chase against Bangladesh was 258, way back in 1999 in Dhaka.
3 Zimbabwe became only the third team to successfully chase down a target of 300-plus runs against Bangladesh in ODIs. Pakistan chased 327 during the 2014 Asia Cup in Mirpur, while England chased down 306 during the 2017 Champions Trophy.
19 Consecutive wins for Bangladesh against Zimbabwe in ODIs, before the five-wicket defeat in Harare. Zimbabwe's last ODI win against Bangladesh came in May 2013, when they won by seven wickets in Bulawayo.
4 Instances of a team losing a men's ODI despite batting full 50 overs at the cost of two or fewer wickets. All the previous three instances were also while batting first, with the last of them by South Africa, when they scored 266 for 2 against Pakistan in 2019.
301 Runs scored by Zimbabwe after the fall of the second wicket in the chase. It is only the fifth instance of a team scoring 300-plus runs for the third and lower wicket in a successful ODI chase. The highest is 347 runs by Australia against India in 2019, after losing two wickets for 12 runs during a 359-run target chase.
192 Partnership runs between Kaia and Raza, the third highest stand for Zimbabwe in ODI cricket. The highest is the 224-run opening stand by Raza with Hamilton Masakadza against Afghanistan in 2014, while Carlisle and Ervine added 202 for the fourth wicket against India in 2004.
135* Raza's score against Bangladesh in Harare is the highest individual score during a successful ODI chase while batting at No.5 and lower. Michael Bracewell's 127* against Ireland last month in Dublin while batting at No.7 was the previous highest.
81 Balls needed for Raza to complete his century, the third fastest for Zimbabwe in ODI cricket. The fastest hundred is by Sean Williams off 77 balls against the UAE in 2019, while Brendan Taylor scored a 79-ball century against Ireland in the 2015 World Cup.
