BASSETERRE, St Kitts (WICB) — Stats highlights from West Indies’ clean sweep of the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh, after their win in St Kitts.

169 Runs Denesh Ramdin scored in this ODI, the highest by a West Indies batsman at home, beating Desmond Haynes’ 152 not out against India in Georgetown, way back in 1989. This is also the second-highest ODI score by a batsman in West Indies. Upul Tharanga’s unbeaten 174 against India in Kingston in the tri-series last year is the highest by a batsman in West Indies.

11 Sixes hit by Ramdin in this match, the highest by any batsman in ODIs in West Indies, beating Chris Gayle’s nine sixes against New Zealand in Kingston in 2012. Ramdin’s 11 sixes are the second highest by a West Indies batsman in an ODI, just one short of Xavier Marshall’s 12 sixes against Canada in 2008. Ramdin’s 11 sixes in this match are also the highest by a wicketkeeper in an innings, beating MS Dhoni’s 10 sixes against Sri Lanka in Jaipur in 2005.

258 Runs added for the third wicket by Darren Bravo and Ramdin, the highest by a West Indies pair for any wicket. They beat the 226-run partnership between Shivnarine Chanderpaul and Carl Hooper for the fourth wicket against South Africa in East London in 1999. This is also the highest third-wicket partnership in ODIs beating the 238-run stand between Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers against Pakistan in Johannesburg in 2013. This was also the highest partnership for any wicket against Bangladesh beating the 250-run stand between Andrew Strauss and Jonathan Trott at Edgbaston in 2010.

338 Runs scored by West Indies in this match – their highest total at home in ODIs, beating the 337 they scored against Zimbabwe in St George’s last year. This was also the fifth-highest score posted by West Indies in an ODI.

8 Scores of 150 or more by No. 4 batsmen in ODIs, including Ramdin’s in this match. His 169 is now the third highest by a No. 4 after Viv Richards’ 189 not out against England at Old Trafford in 1984 and 181 against Sri Lanka in Karachi in the 1987 World Cup. Of the eight scores of 150 or more by No. 4 batsmen, five have been by West Indies batsmen.

11 Number of instances, including this match, when two West Indies batsmen have hit centuries in the same ODI. The last such instance came against New Zealand earlier this year in Hamilton, when Kirk Edwards and Dwayne Bravo hit centuries.

19 Sixes hit by West Indies batsmen – the highest they have ever hit in an ODI. Their previous highest was 14 sixes, which they hit against Canada in 2008. This was also the most sixes hit against Bangladesh in an ODI, beating the 16 that Australia struck in Dhaka in 2011.

2 ODI centuries by West Indies wicketkeepers including Ramdin’s in this match. The previous one was also hit by him, against England in North Sound earlier this year.

241 Runs scored by wicketkeepers in this match – the third-highest total runs scored by the designated wicketkeepers of both teams in an ODI. The highest such aggregate came in a match between India and Sri Lanka in 2005, when India’s wicketkeeper MS Dhoni got 183 and Sri Lanka’s Kumar Sangakkara hit 138, taking the total by wicketkeepers in that match to 321 runs.

13 Number of consecutive ODIs Bangladesh have now played without winning. The last time they won was against New Zealand in Fatullah last year. Click here for the list of the longest winless streaks in ODIs.
