In the second 10 ODIs, Bangladesh had scored 1646 runs in 445.3 overs at a run rate of 3.69 and average runs per 10 ODIs was 164.6

In the third 10 ODIs, Bangladesh had scored 1820 runs in 444.5 overs at a run rate of 4.09 and average runs per 10 ODIs was 182 with 1 win.

In the forth 10 ODIs, Bangladesh had scored 1819 runs in 470.3 overs at a run rate of 3.86 and average runs per 10 ODIs was 181.9 with 2 wins.

Great stats. I wish the test will soon also start to look like this.

Fwullah - You are our guiding light !

I was wondering also, and maybe if this is done after the world cup (if I'm correct, then there may be a more balance between the no of ODIs played BEFORE BD's test status and AFTER test status), we can see how our runs/ODI has changed. Will this help us to understand how playing TESTs may have impacted our ODI performance ?

One other thing, for each set of ten ODIs that you have drawn data for, how about finding out the duration each 10 ODI period lasted (in years, like 3.2 yrs). This will help us understand if playing more ODIs have impacted our ODI performance. Though I suppose the answer is pretty obvious.

The last (fifth) 10 ODIs was played right after Bangladesh got Test status.

That is, the 41st ODI that Bangladesh played was against England, after attaining Test status, but Bangladesh did not play any test match.

But the 42nd ODI that Bangladesh played against Zimbabwe, it was played after Bangladesh had played the inaugural Test match against india.
