Bangladesh cricket team is one of the full and recognized members of the ICC and has played 394 ODI matches against all the teams. Bangladesh is an emerging team that has shown that they have the caliber to change the predictable parameter of the match in the past. For instance, Bangladesh changed the parameter of the 2007 World Cup when they defeated India by 5 runs in the 8th ODI match of the World Cup. As of May 2023, Bangladesh is sitting at the number 7th position leaving behind Sri Lanka and West Indies, this shows how fast Bangladesh cricketers learn and develop their skills.
Bangladesh registered a record for the highest run chase in the 27th match of the ODI World Cup 2015 against Scotland where they successfully chased the target of 319 runs and made 322 runs. Scotland batted first in that match and added a big total of 218 runs on the scoreboard. In reply, Bangladeshi opener Tamim Iqbal and Soumya Sarkar came out to the middle to chase the target but they lost their first wicket of Sarkar so early, but Bangladesh did not surrender and handled the situation very well.
Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah played outstanding innings and added 139 runs for the 2nd wicket, which motivated the other players to hit hard, and the rest of the work was completed by Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, and Shabbir Rahman. Thus Bangladesh won the match by 6 wickets and added the record of the highest chase in ODI by Bangladesh.
