Ind vs Ban 3rd T20 : Will it the Men in Blue or will the Tigers win the Series?
A shocking defeat in Delhi, India have come back strongly in Rajkot, showing the glimpses of how T20 cricket should be played in 2019. There were lots of criticism about how India’s ODI attitude is affecting the game plan of not using the powerplay but in Rajkot, India scored 63 runs in Power-Play but still, there are question marks over Dhawan’s spot in the side, whether KL Rahul needs to open or Sanju Samson should replace Rishabh Pant. Coming to the bowling department Indian captain Rohit Sharma had a tough task in the first 2 matches without the experience of Bumrah and Bhuvaneswar Kumar but spinners put their hands up & took the wickets for their captain and that restricted Bangladesh to less than 150, Rohit Sharma will be looking for a similar performance from the spinners in the third T20.
India X1 – Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Krunal Pandya, Yuzi Chahal, Shradul Thakur, Deepak Chahar.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, coming into the series their captain Shakib Al Hasan was banned for one year & Tamim Iqbal was ruled out of the series and they would have never thought of winning a match but their temperament, youngsters chipping in and never give up attitude of Rahim helped them win in the first T20 but was thrashed in the second T20 by Rohit Sharma, still they would be reasonably happy with their effort in first two matches. They will be looking to improve their run-rate in death overs to get extra 10-20 runs which can make a difference in the match which was missing in the second T20.
Bangladesh X1 – Liton Das, Mohammed Naim, Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mohammed Mithun, Aminul Islam, Taijul Islam, Al-Amin, Mustafizur Rahman.
Spinners will be playing a big role in Nagpur, the average score in T20’s has been 155. Bangladesh would fancy their chances in Nagpur as they did in Delhi. As winter approaching in India, dew will be playing a big role today.

Bangladesh will come hard against India with the track they will be getting in Nagpur but the momentum in hand and Rohit Sharma & his team will be looking to prove Delhi was of those off days for India under his captaincy.
