Match Details:

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

The match starts at 7:00 PM local time (IST) (1:30 PM GMT). This game can be viewed on Star Sports 1/1 HD, Star Sports 1 Hindi/1 HD Hindi, Star Sports 1 Tamil, Star Sports 1 Telugu, Star Sports 1 Kannada, Star Sports 1 Bangla and Star Sports Select 1/1 HD. Live streaming available on Hotstar and Jio TV (Jio Cricket).

Preview:

Bangladesh’s happiness didn’t last too long as Team India managed to bounce back in the 2nd T20I at Rajkot. Rohit Sharma, with his beast mode on, absolutely destroyed the Bangla bowling attack and handed India over with a memorable victory. On what seemed to be a very good batting surface, the visitors literally threw it away after having got to a wonderful start.

However, they needn’t be disheartened as yet as the series scoreline still stands square and they have got a chance to create history. While Bangladesh will hope to pull off yet another upset, the Indian juggernaut will look to come hard at them once again. As it stands at this moment, there is not a whole lot of difference between both these sides given that there is a lot of inexperience in the Indian squad. You’ll have to tune in to watch as to which team will reign supreme in the highly anticipated decider on Sunday.


Weather Report

With the predicted humidity levels quite high at the venue, dew could play a massive factor. Thus, teams might prefer to bowl first. It won’t be too hot and rain will not cause any interruption to this game.

Pitch Condition/Report:

The Nagpur track is usually a tough one for the batsmen. They will have to toil hard for each and every run. Teams shouldn’t get too ambitious and should rather look to get a defendable total here at this venue. A T20I is being played here after over two and a half years. In the India-Australia ODI that was played here earlier this year, the bowlers enjoyed bowling on this surface.

Average first innings score: 129.66 (Last three T20Is at this venue)

Record of chasing teams: Won – 1, Lost – 2, Tied – 0
