Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
Pakistan has already taken a series-winning lead against Bangladesh by 2-0. They have a golden opportunity to whitewash the Tigers by winning the final game of the three-match T20I series. In batting, Babar Azam and Mohammad Hafeez amassed brilliant fifties in the 2nd T20I and they will look to come up with some brilliant knocks in the upcoming game.
On the other hand, their bowling has so far given balanced performances with the ball in the ongoing series. Bangladesh is still due to taste their first win and they have already lost the series. So, they will come with a free mind and no pressure. In such a situation they can play their natural game with no fear. In the presence of Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das and Afif Hossain they hold firepower that can win them their upcoming game against Men in Green.
There are slight chances of rain with a probability of 18%. But, it might not hamper the length of the match and the fans can expect a full-length game between Pakistan and Bangladesh. The wind is expected to blow at a rate of 7 to 11 Km/hr. Meanwhile, the temperature will deviate between 9 and 18 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The track at the Gaddafi Stadium has been criticised by the cricketing fraternity due to its behaviour. In the previous two games, both the sides have struggled to pile big runs on the scoreboard in the shorter format of the game. The wicket has so far played on a slower side with spinners getting a lot of help. The same will expected be going into the third and final game of the T20I series. Also, the side winning the toss will look to bat as far as the trends of the series are concerned.
Average first innings score: 145 (Last three T20Is at the venue)
Record of the chasing teams: Won – 2; Lost – 1
