As India take on Bangladesh in a low-profile one-day series, we do some number crunching and tell you about the best and worst performances of both sides, both individually and as a team.
India and Bangladesh have faced each other in 25 matches till date, of which India have won a majority -- 22 to be precise. Bangladesh, on the other hand, have tasted wins in only three matches, but the last two have come within five years of each other and in significant games -- one of course being the 2007 World Cup match, and the other the 2012 Asia Cup game in which Sachin Tendulkar got his 100th international ton.
India's highest score in an ODI against Bangladesh is 370 for 4 at Dhaka on February 19, 2011.
