Bangladesh vs Pakistan T20I series kicks off on November 19

Bangladesh is set to host Pakistan in a multi-format series. The tour comprises of three-match T20I series followed by a two-match Test series. The T20I series kicks off on November 19 in Dhaka. The Shere Bangla National Stadium will host the first game of the series.

Bangladesh will be led by Mahmudullah. They have made a couple of changes to their squad which took part in the 2021 T20 World Cup. Shakib Al Hasan misses out after suffering from a hamstring injury. Mushfiqur Rahim has been rested for the T20I series. The Tigers will be keen to be at their best against a strong Pakistan’s side.

Bangladesh competed in the first round in the T20 World Cup and qualified for the Super 12s. What followed was a disappointing show from them as they failed to win a single game in the Super 12 stage. They have been fantastic at home in the shortest format and will look to keep improving their record.

Pakistan started in the T20 World Cup as favourites. They had a sensational start to the competition and qualified for the semi-finals without losing a single game. They outplayed the likes of India, New Zealand in the group stages.

They faced Australia in the semi-final and suffered a heart-breaking loss as Matthew Wade played a brilliant cameo to steer Australia to the final. They will be eager to turn the tables around in the series against Bangladesh.

Babar Azam will continue to lead Pakistan. They have included pacer Shahnawaz Dahani and spinner Usman Qadir in the squad and fans might see them get an opportunity in the T20I series. They will be wary of the Bangladesh challenge and will look to keep their best foot forward in the opening game of the series.
