6 T20 Internationals for India against Bangladesh now. They have won all 6. In fact, Bangladesh are the only team against whom India have played more than 2 matches and still have a 100% win record (they have won 2 out of 2 against Afghanistan). Bangladesh, on the other hand, have played New Zealand 7 times and have lost all 7. One more defeat against India will help them ‘level’ their performance against New Zealand. The world record lies with Pakistan, who have a 9-0 head-to-head with Zimbabwe.

2 captains for India against Bangladesh now, Rohit Sharma being the 2nd. MS Dhoni had led India in all 5 previous India-Bangladesh encounters. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have used 4 captains for 6 T20Is — Mohammad Ashraful, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mashrafe Mortaza, and now Mahmudullah.
