The Bangladesh-West Indies clash in the ongoing World Cup on Monday saw 41 wides being bowled in total. The bowlers of both the teams erred — with Bangladesh opting to field, started with 16 wides and Windies giving away 25.

Defending a total of 321, the extras did prove costly for West Indies as Bangladesh gunned down the target with 51 balls remaining.

In the history of One-day Internationals, Pakistan has conceded the most number (37) of wides twice. West Indies gave away 27 wides, its highest, in a match in 1999 against Pakistan in Toronto.
