New Delhi: India may be eyeing an easy win over Bangladesh in the second quarter final match at Melbourne, but the road is not that much easy as it seems to be. The fact is, Bangladesh, which is playing its 300th ODI today, has won most of its matches which were milestones in terms of match number.

Bangladesh has won its 100th, 150th and 200th matches. They could not win their 250th match although they compensated for it in 251st match.

However, the 250th match, which they played against Zimbabwe in Harare, halted them from setting a milestone. The match was won by Zimbabwe.
