Mushfiqur (81) put on an unbeaten 87-run stand with teenager Mehedi (51) to deny the hosts a wicket in the final session at Hyderabad s Uppal Stadium. The visitors were 322 for 6 at stumps, needing another 166 runs to avoid the follow-on against the top-ranked Test side. The day ended with some interesting numbers to follow. We present some of the statistical highlights. <p></p> <p></p>Shakib became the first Bangladeshi and <strong>8th cricketer overall to concede 100 runs and score 80 runs against India</strong> in the first innings of both sides. The other seven are Ravi Ratnayeke (93 scored, 132 conceded in 1986-87), Imran Khan (135* and 103 in 1986-87), Richard Hadlee (87 and 123 in 1989-90), Carl Hooper (81 and 116 in 1993-94), Grant Flower (106* and 101 in 2000-01), James Anderson (81 and 123 in 2014) and Moeen Ali (146 and 190 in 2016-17). Of the above, Shakib is the only player with no wickets. <p></p> <p></p>This was also the 3rd instance of Shakib achieving this unusual double, the joint 2nd-most by any player after Hadlee (4). Garry Sobers and Daniel Vettori have also achieved this double thrice. <p></p> <p></p><strong>Shakib s 82 is his best against India.</strong> His previous best against India was 34. With this fifty, Shakib now has fifties against all teams against he played baring South Africa. <p></p> <p></p>Shakib scored at a strike rate of 79.6, the 4th-best by a Bangladeshi batsman against India with at least 80 runs, after Mushfiqur (101 at 88.6 in 2009-10), <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Tamim-Iqbal" target="_blank">Tamim Iqbal</a> (151 at 82.5 in 2009-10) and Mohammad Ashraful (158* at 81.4 in 2004-05). <p></p> <p></p>With a boundary off <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Ishant-Sharma" target="_blank">Ishant Sharma</a> in the final over of the day, <strong>Mushfiqur completed 3,000 Test runs.</strong> He became the 4th Bangladeshi (and 185th overall) to reach this landmark after Tamim (3,443), Shakib (3,213) and Habibul Bashar (3,026). <p></p> <p></p>Bangladesh have already batted 104 overs without getting all out. This is already their 2nd-longest against India, after 153 overs in 2000-01 in their first ever Test. <p></p> <p></p>Bangladesh s 322 for 6 is now their 3rd-highest total against India after 400 in 2000-01 and 333 in 2004-05. They have still 4 wickets left. <p></p> <p></p>Mushfiqur averages 67 against India, the 3rd-best average by a Bangladeshi against any team with a 200-run cut-off, after Mominul Haque (463 runs against New Zealand at 115.75) and Shakib (412 against Pakistan at 68.67). <p></p> <p></p>Shakib has scored 493 runs in this season, the 4th-most by a Bangladeshi in a season after Bashar (702 in 2003), Tamim (569 in 2009-10) and Mominul (547 in 2013-14). <p></p> <p></p>The 5th-wicket partnership of 107 between Shakib and Mushfiqur is their 2nd-best against India, after 115 runs by Aftab Ahmed and Ashraful in 2004-05. <p></p> <p></p>This was also the <strong>4th century-partnership between Shakib and Mushfiqur, the joint-2nd by any pair from Bangladesh.</strong> The other pairs with 4 century partnerships are Imrul Kayes and Tamim, and Mominul and Tamim. The record is of 5 hundred partnerships between Javed Omar and Habibul. <p></p> <p></p>Mehedi scored his maiden fifty at only 19 years 107 days. He became the <strong>2nd-youngest Bangladeshi to score a fifty against India</strong> after Nafees Iqbal (54, at 19 years 40 days in 2004-05). He also became the 3rd Bangladeshi to score a fifty against India at No. 8 after Mahmudullah (96* and 69 in 2009-10) and Mashrafe Mortaza (79 and 70 in 2007). <p></p> <p></p><a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/Bhuvneshwar-Kumar" target="_blank">Bhuvneshwar Kumar</a> bowled 17 overs and went wicketless. He became the 4th Indian bowler to bowl 15 overs without taking a wicket against Bangladesh, after Javagal Srinath (22-9-47-0 in 2000-01), Murali Kartik (24-9-41-0 in 2000-01) and Ishant (15-2-50-0 in 2009-10). However, Bhuvneshwar will get his chance tomorrow. <p></p> <p></p>Shakib and Mushfiqur have added 599 runs between them in 2016-17. This is the <strong>most runs scored by any Bangladeshi pair in a season.</strong> The duo went past Kayes and Tamim s tally of 524 runs in 2015. <p></p> <p></p>Shakib and Mushfiqur have added 2,124 between them, the 2nd-most by a Bangladesh pair after Kayes and Tamim (2,275 runs). <p></p> <p></p>Bhuvneshwar, Ishant and Umesh Yadav were the three pacers used by India. The last time India played with three pacers in a Test was back in 2015-16 against South Africa at Bangalore. <p></p> <p></p>Bhuvneshwar (17), Ishant (16) and Umesh (18) all bowled more than 15 overs. This was the <strong>22nd time that three Indian seamers sent down 15 overs in the same innings at home.</strong> The previous occasion was back in 2007-08 at Ahmedabad, when the bowlers were S Sreesanth (23), RP Singh (21) and Irfan Pathan (21.2). It must be noted here this happened in each innings in the Mohali Tests of 1997-98 (against Sri Lanka) and 2004-05 (against Australia).
