1 Mosaddek Hossain became the first Bangladeshi cricketer to take a wicket in his first ball on debut when he trapped Hashmatullah Shahidi leg before for 14. A total of 23 other cricketers took a wicket in his first. The list contained some of the interesting names like Clive Lloyd and Inzamam-ul Haq. Hong Kong bowler Ehsan Ahmed last achieved the feat against Scotland on September 8 in Edinburg.

6 Mosaddek Hossain scored highest 45 runs as Bangladesh were all out for 208 runs in the second one-day international against Afghanistan in Mirpur on Wednesday. The last time Bangladesh had an innings without any half-century was six matches ago against South Africa in the same ground. Sakib al Hasan scored highest 48 runs as Bangladesh were all out for 160 in that match in July 2015.

16 Mohammad Nabi conceded just 16 runs in his 10 overs for two wickets creating a new record of most economic bowling for Afghanistan in a one-day international. Nabi surpassed the record of Hamid Hassan, who took 2-19 in 10 overs against Kenya at Sharjah in 2013. Nabi holds the overall record of most economic bowling for Afghanistan in an ODI innings when he grabbed 2-10 in 8.3 over, also against Kenya at Sharjah in 2013.

100 Sakib al Hasan took 4-47 to take his tally to 100 at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium. Only two bowlers have more than 100 ODI wickets in a single ground as Pakistan legends Wasim Akram and Waqar Younis grabbed 122 and 114 wickets at Sharjah respectively.— New Age
