1 - Bangladesh opener Tamim Iqbal on Friday surpassed Sakib al Hasan to become country’s leading run-getter in the Twenty20 internationals. Tamim, who is the leading run-scorer for Bangladesh in Test and one-day internationals, needed 12 runs to overtake Sakib and he made 39 off 34 balls during the first Twenty20 international against Pakistan to achieve the feat. Tamim now has scored 1,595 runs in 72 innings while his compatriot Sakib made 1567 runs in 76 innings.

71 - Tamim Iqbal and Mohammad Naim’s putting a 71-run opening stand against Pakistan is the highest opening stand for Bangladesh against Pakistan in Twenty20 internationals. The previous highest opening partnership record for Bangladesh against Pakistan was 41 runs which were scored by Tamim and Nazimuddin in Karachi in 2008.

144 - Bangladesh’s score of 141-5 against Pakistan on Friday is the lowest ever total at Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore while batting first in a Twenty20 international. The previous lowest total at this venue was 147-7 which was scored by Sri Lanka while batting first against Pakistan in October last year.
