The 3rd and the last match of the three-match T20I series between India and Bangladesh will be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur.

Bangladesh's 7-wicket win in the first T20I in Delhi followed by India's 8-wicket win in the 2nd T20I in Rajkot has made the series interesting for the last and final match of the series, to be played in Nagpur.

The main reason why Bangladesh succeeded in coming out victorious in the first T20I was the success of their bowlers. The likes of Shafiul Islam, Aminul Islam and Afif Hossain made full use of the Delhi surface and did not allow the Indian batsmen to cut loose. Mushfiqur Rahim's half-century then helped them chase down the target and win by 7 wickets.

However, their bowlers could not pull that off in the 2nd T20I. Bangladesh, who were looking good for a 180-run total at one time could only manage 153 runs due to good bowling performances from Yuzvendra Chahal and Deepak Chahar.

Rohit Sharma then came out all guns blazing and plundered 85 runs off 43 deliveries to leave the Bangladesh bowling line-up no option. Aminul Islam still impressed, accounting for the wickets of both Indian openers, but did not receive enough support from the fellow bowlers.

Bangladesh's best chance would be to restrict Rohit Sharma in the last T20I in order to make a match out of it. Or, as Bangladesh skipper Mahmudullah said in the post-match presentation, score a few more runs if the surface is batting friendly.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

India- Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya/Rahul Chahar, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur

Bangladesh- Liton Das, Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mosaddek Hossain, Aminul Islam, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain
