A remarkable turnaround saw West Indies defeat Bangladesh at Chattogram with debutant Kyle Mayers seeing West Indies home by three wickets in a Test which had more than a few interesting points, some of which are mentioned below.
  • Mehidy Hasan Miraz became the fourth Bangladesh number 8 to score a Test century.
  • Mehidy became the third Bangladesh player, after Shakib al Hasan and Sohag Gazi, to score a century and take eight wickets in a Test.
  • Mehidy became the first player since South African Jimmy Sinclair in 1898-99 to play in a losing side after scoring a century and taking a minimum of eight wickets.
  • Bangladesh's 430 is the fifteenth-highest first innings total after which a team has gained a lead but ultimately lost the match. The highest is Bangladesh's 595 for 8 against New Zealand at Wellington in 2016-17.
  • Kyle Mayers's aggregate of 250 runs is the fourth-highest by a player on debut. The record is held by Lawrence Rowe (314 for West Indies against New Zealand at Kingston in 1971-72). Rowe is the only batsman to score a double century and century in a debut match whilst Pakistan's Yasir Hameed is the only other batsman to score two centuries on debut.
  • Mayers is the sixth batsman to record a double century on debut but the first to do so in the second innings.
  • The West Indian successful chase of their victory target of 395 is the fifth-highest in Tests. The record is 418, also by West Indies, against Australia at St.John's, Antigua in 2002-03.
  • The partnership of 216 between Mayers and Nkrumah Bonner, who also made his debut, is a record for the fourth wicket for West Indies against Bangladesh. The previous best was 177 between Marlon Samuels and Shivnarine Chanderpaul at Khulna in 2012-13.
  • The partnership of 133 between Mominul Haque and Liton Das is a record for the fifth wicket for Bangladesh against West Indies. This stand surpasses the 130 between Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim at Arnos Vale in 2014.
