India who has already qualified for the Idea Cup final will be keen to continue their winning streak when they will take on host Bangladesh in the last league game of Triangular series.
Bangladesh on the other hand will try to give their supporter something to cheer by performing well in their last league match. So far they have done well with the bat on all three occasions but some how their bowlers failed to restrict the opposition team below the target.
Toss will once again play an important role and team winning the toss is likely to have bowl first. So far team batting first has lost their matches in this series which is an indication of how badly game will get affected because of dew.
Watch out for
Shakib Al Hasan: He has already done enough justice for his side and himself and that’s why he is at 2nd position in the ICC ODI ranking table for the bowlers. He is one of the finest cricketer produced by Bangladesh, he can not only take wickets for his team but can also make useful runs whenever his team required from him So far he has not done well enough with the bat and will be eager to put a match winning performance for his side.
Yuvraj Singh: So far he is quite with the bat in the series except one half century against Sri Lanka. But with players of his caliber is likely to bounce back in quick time.
Pitch & Condition
The pitch at Shere Bangla Stadium will be same as used in the last game between India and Sri Lanka. Team winning the toss is likely to have a bowl first considering the dew factor. If India have to bat first then they would eye a score above 300 runs.
With India already in the Final of Idea Cup, they will look to give some of their players chance who has not played on this tour to make their mark. Players like Rohit Sharma, A.Dinda is likely to be included in the squad.
Bangladesh is likely to go with the same XI which last played against India.
Likely Playing XI for both Teams (Match is Schedule to begin at 13:30 PM India Time)
India Squad: V.Sehwag, D.Karthik, Rohit Sharma, Yuvraj Singh, M.S.Dhoni (Captain & WK), Suresh Raina, Ravinder Jadeja, A.Mishra, A.Dinda, A.Nehra, S.Tyagi.
Bangladesh Squad: Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Mohammad Ashraful, Shakib Al Hasan (Captain), Raqibul Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim (WK), Naeem Islam, Abdur Razzak, Rubel Hossain, Syed Rasel
