  • The Gilchrist-Hayden partnership of 113 runs was the only third 100-plus stand for the first wicket in this competition. The Indian pair of Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar (141 v New Zealand at Nairobi, 15-10-2000) and South Africans Daryll Cullinan and Mike Rindel (113 v England at Dhaka, 25-10-1998) the other pairs to register three-figure partnerships for the first wicket in the ICC tournament since 1998.

  • Bangladesh have not won a single LOI match since its win against Pakistan at Northamton on 31-5-1999. Since then this was its 19th consecutive loss. Bangladesh is now slowly progressing towards its own dubious world record of 22 consecutive losses from 31-3-1986 to 14-5-1998.

  • This was Gillespie's fourth man of the match award of his career in 43 matches. Interestingly, in none of the four matches he has managed to claim more than three wickets, while claiming the award.
