1 T20 tournament final between India and Bangladesh till date, in the 2016 Asia Cup at Mirpur; India had won that match comfortably, by 8 wickets. This will be Bangladesh’s 2nd T20I final and India’s 4th. India had earlier beaten Pakistan in the 2007 World T20 final and lost the 2014 World T20 final to Sri Lanka.

7 T20 Internationals for India against Bangladesh and they have won all 7, their best record against any country. They do not have a 100% win record against any other team against whom they have played 2 or more matches. It will also be Bangladesh’s worst record against any side: they have a 0-7 head-to-head against New Zealand. Pakistan have a 9-0 record against Zimbabwe.

1 T20I win needed for India to go past South Africa, who have 60 wins. Only Pakistan (74) have won more T20Is.

1 T20I defeat needed for Bangladesh to become the 2nd team, after Sri Lanka (52), to lose 50 T20Is. Bangladesh are currently joint-2nd, with New Zealand.

1 run needed by Suresh Raina (1,499) to reach 1,500 T20I runs. Of Indians, only Virat Kohli (1,983) and Rohit Sharma (1,796) have reached the landmark. He will also become the 15th in the world to do this.

3 wickets needed by Yuzvendra Chahal (32) to go past Ashish Nehra (34) and reach the 3rd spot among Indian T20I bowlers. Ravichandran Ashwin (52) leads the way, followed by Jasprit Bumrah (41).

4 runs needed by Mahmudullah (996) to reach the 1,000-run mark. The other Bangladeshis to do this are Tamim Iqbal (1,425), Shakib Al Hasan (1,230), and Mushfiqur Rahim (1,003). Overall, 41 people have done this.

0 dismissal for Mushfiqur in 7 T20Is against India. Mushfiqur is the only wicketkeeper to play 7 or more matches against a single nation but not have a single dismissal. With a 7-match cut-off, Quinton de Kock has 3 dismissals from 8 matches against Australia, while Gary Wilson has 3 from 7 against Afghanistan. In fact, no wicketkeeper has gone even 5 matches against a particular team without a dismissal.

3 wickets needed by Rubel Hossain (5) to top the wickets tally in India-Bangladesh matches. The list is headed by Al-Amin Hossain (7), followed by Ashwin (6). Nehra also has 5 wickets.

4 captains used by Bangladesh in their 7 matches against India — Mohammad Ashraful, Mushfiqur, Mashrafe Mortaza, and Mahmudullah. Shakib may become the 5th. India have used only 2 captains, Dhoni and Rohit.

1 uncapped player in the Indian camp — Deepak Hooda. He may become the 75th Indian to play T20Is.
