Bangladesh and New Zealand are all set to lock horns in the third game of the three-match ODI series. The Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur will be hosting this clash on Tuesday, September 26.
The Tigers have brought quite a few changes to their squad after losing the second ODI in Mirpur. Both Tamim Iqbal and Litton Das have been rested. Nazmul Hossain Shanto has returned and will lead the team in the third match.
Apart from Shanto, Shoriful Islam, Taskin Ahmed, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz have also made their comebacks. Soumya Sarkar, who scored a duck on Saturday, and Nurul Hasan Sohan have been dropped.
Mustafizur Rahman and Khaled Ahmed have also been rested. In the absence of Tamim and Litton, one of Anamul Haque Bijoy and Zakir Hasan is likely to open the batting.
As far as New Zealand are concerned, they will be high on confidence and will now look to win the series. Ish Sodhi scored 35 runs in the previous game after which he registered the best bowling figures by a New Zealand spinner in ODIs.
