India vs. Bangladesh: Third T20I Preview

Match details:

Series/tournament name: India vs Bangladesh T20I series

Venue: Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Nagpur

Date: November 10, 2019

Time: 7:00 PM IST


After pollution in Delhi and a cyclone threat in Rajkot, we are here in Nagpur for what promises to be an exciting series decider. If it was Mushfiqur Rahim all the way in Delhi, it was the Hitman show in Rajkot as India levelled the series with aplomb. Bowling has been a slight concern for India, in particular their pace bowling while Bangladesh will rue that their batsmen continue to be inconsistent.

Contrary to what it appeared at the start of the series, Bangladesh are no pushovers and India must have realised it too. We could be in for a few changes from either side despite this being a series decider. India could decide to sit out Khaleel Ahmed for Shardul Thakur while Bangladesh might ponder replacing Mossadek Hossain or Shafiul Islam for more potency in their bowling attack.

Weather report:

Hazy winds are expected although the weather is quite clear for this fixture. 

Pitch report: 

The pitch could slow down prompting teams to re-think their bowl first strategy.

Probable Playing XI:

India: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant/Sanju Samson (wk), Krunal Pandya, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Deepak Chahar, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal

Bangladesh: Soumya Sarkar, Mohammad Naim, Liton Das, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain,
