Probable best batsman of the match

Liton Das– Bangladesh

Liton Das has been a fulcrum of the Bangladesh top-order for the last few years. In the previous game, he made 33 runs off 29 balls with the help of three fours and one six. Just when he was looking good for a big knock, Ravindra rattled his woodwork. The Dinajpur-born played at a strike rate of 113.79 and showed his class with the bat in hand.

Probable best bowler of the match

Mustafizur Rahman- Bangladesh

Mustafizur Rahman has been a genuine wicket-taker for Bangladesh in T20Is over the years. The left-arm fast bowler has picked up wickets, both in the powerplay and at the death. In the first game of the series, he picked up three wickets. But in the second match, Mustafizur couldn’t make a breakthrough. Moreover, he went for 34 runs in his quota of four overs.

Today’s match prediction: Bangladesh to win the match.
