330 for six is Bangladesh’s highest ever total in the World Cup. Their previous highest score in the mega event was the 322 they scored against Scotland in 2015 at the Saxton Oval in Nelson. It was also Bangladesh’s highest ever total against South Africa in the fifty-over format, surpassing their previous best of 278 for seven, which came in 2017.
A 142-run third wicket stand between Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim is Bangladesh’s highest partnership at any wicket in the World Cup. The Tigers’ previous best partnership in the World Cup was a 141-run stand between Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur against England during the 2015 edition in Adelaide.
The 142-run third wicket stand between Shakib and Mushfiqur is also Bangladesh’s highest third wicket stand against South Africa. Mahmudullah and Soumya Sarkar’s 135 in 2015 was the previous highest for the Tigers against South Africa.
