Big upset to the hosts after they lost to minnows Afghanistan in the 2nd ODI. The series is now tied 1-1.It was a hard-fought and narrow win for the hosts by two wickets. The win must be credited mainly to the fifth wicket partnership of 107 runs between Mohammad Nabi and captain Asghar Stanikzai in a chase of 209.

Can the Afghans pull off yet another win today and clinch the series?

Team news:

In the previous game, Mosharraf Hossain replaced Rubel Hossain in the team, but it is not sure if he will play today.

The hosts might go with three left-arm spinners. The form of Soumya Sarkar is a worry for Bangladesh; it will be interesting to see if the selectors give him another chance in this crucial game.

The Bangladesh batsmen need to learn the art of staying at the wicket for a longer duration as they threw away their wickets after settling down.

Five of their top order players got out playing irresponsible strokes which cost them the game.

Pitch and wheater report:

The first ODI was played on a track that was helpful to the batsmen and the second game on a pitch that assisted the spinners. However, for today's ODI, the curators may opt to play on the spinning track to help the Bangladesh slow bowlers.
