Bangladesh have surprised one and all in the T20I series against England, the current world champions. They got the better of England in the first two games and have taken an unassailable lead in the T20I series. The Shakib-led side crossed the line in 18.5 overs while chasing a modest total of 118 in the last game. They will have an opportunity to clean sweep England.

Meanwhile, England would look for a better all-round performance in the last game of the tour. The English batters, who succumbed to Bangladesh’s spinners, will particularly hope for a better effort to provide their team with a solitary win in the T20I series.

Match Details

  • Location: Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.
  • Time: 3:00 pm (local), 2:30 pm (IST).

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

Bangladesh:

  • Najmul Hossain Shanto has been the standout batter for Bangladesh in this T20I series. He made an excellent fifty in the first game and compiled a 46-run knock on a tricky surface in the second T20I. He will again be a crucial batter for Bangladesh.
  • Litton Das hasn’t fired with the bat in the series so far. His scores in the first two games read: 12 & 9. However, given his superior skillsets, expect Das to come good this time around.
  • Shakib Al Hasan has been in excellent form in the T20s this year. He has scored 410 runs at an average of 41 and a strike rate of 168.72 in 2023. He has hit a boundary on every 3.79 balls.
  • Mehidy Hasan Miraz wreaked havoc in the second T20I. He registered his career-best figures [4-0-12-4] in T20 cricket. Mehidy also snared five wickets in the ODI series against England.
  • Mustafizur Rahman has picked up 8 wickets at an economy rate of 7.66 and a strike rate of 18.8 in the third match of a T20I series.

England:

  • Jos Buttler batted at No. 4 in the last match. He has made 1310 runs at an average of 29.11 and a strike rate of 139.36 at this position in the T20s. Buttler has also amassed 9 fifties.
  • Ben Duckett is a fine player of spin. He has accumulated 471 runs at an average of 27.70 and a strike rate of 145.82 against the spinners since 2022. He will be a vital player on a track that might assist the slow bowlers.
  • Moeen Ali has made 389 runs at a strike rate of 130.97 in Bangladesh T20s. He has also taken 16 wickets at an economy rate of 7.59 and a strike rate of 19 here.

  • Rehan Ahmed possesses many variations, along with a lethal googly. On a slow Mirpur track, Rehan can flummox the Bangladesh batters.
