The series win against West Indies was Bangladesh’s only second Twenty20 international series victory against any country outside their home. Their previous series win in abroad came earlier in 2012 when they defeated Ireland 3-0 in a three-match series in Belfast.

3 Bangladesh, who played three-Twenty20 internationals against West Indies in the neutral venues, clinched win in all three of them. This unique record goes back to the September 2007, when Bangladesh claimed their first six-wicket victory against the Caribbean in the maiden ICC World Twenty20 in Johannesburg.

22 Bangladesh made a scintillating start in the final Twenty20 international against West Indies where the openers – Liton Das and Tamim Iqbal – were dealing with only boundaries which took them to the fastest fifty in Bangladesh’s history as they took only 22 balls to reach it.
The previous one was, with 23 balls, against South Africa in the group stage match of the maiden ICC World Twenty20 at Cape Town in September 2007.

61 Opener Liton Das, who was yet to be settled the squad, had a lot to prove to the spectators as he scored only 25 runs in the two previous matches of the series. Liton chose the final Twenty20 international to clear all the doubts as he played a scintillating innings of 61 off 32 deliveries, his maiden T20i fifty, with six fours and three sixes, helping Bangladesh to 184-5 in 20 overs.
