1 - Paul Stirling and William Porterfield’s 174-run stand for the third wicket against Bangladesh in Dublin was the highest ever partnership for any wicket in an ODI match between the countries. The record was previously held by Bangladesh’s Mohammad Ashraful and Shahriar Nafees, as the pair had formed an unbeaten 130-run stand for the third wicket in March, 2008 in Dhaka.

4 - Abu Jayed became the fourth Bangladeshi bowler to grab a five-wicket haul on foreign soil in an ODI match when the pacer took 5-58 against Ireland in Dublin on Wednesday. Mashrafee bin Murtaza was the first Bangladeshi to do so, when he claimed 6-26 against Kenya in Nairobi on August, 2006. Abdur Razzak then took 5-56 against Sri Lanka at Pallekele and Ziaur Rahman claimed 5-30 against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo in 2013.

130 - Paul Stirling hammered 130 runs against Bangladesh on Wednesday, which was his first century against Bangladesh and his highest ODI score against a Test playing nation. It was also the highest individual innings in an ODI match between Bangladesh and Ireland.

292 - Ireland posted 292-8 against Bangladesh on Monday, which was the second highest total in ODIs between the nations. Bangladesh had previously posted 293-7 in Dhaka in 2008.
