With a win over Zimbabwe in the first match of the three-match T20I series at Harare Sports Club, Harare, on Thursday, July 22, Bangladesh entered into an elite league of countries with victory in their 100th game of all formats.
While this was their 100th T20I, where they defeated Zimbabwe by eight wickets, their 100th Test win came against Sri Lanka at Colombo in 2017 when they chased down 191 in the fourth innings. Their ODI milestone however dates way back to 2004 when the Tigers stunned India by 15 runs in Dhaka.
Two other nations to have achieved the same feat are Australia and Pakistan and among the three only Australia has won the first and 100th game of all three formats that they have played.
Overall, Bangladesh have played 124 Tests and won only 15, losing 92 and drawing 17. They have a win percentage of 12.09. In ODIs, the team has played 388 games, winning 136 and losing 245 while seven of their games have had no result whatsoever.
Their win percentage remains 35.69. In the shortest format, their record isn’t that good either as in 100 matches they have lost 65 and won only 35 with a win percentage of 35.
