Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 150 being a potentially match-winning total at the venue.
Today’s BAN vs PAK Dream11 match top picks
Mohammad Rizwan: Mohammad Rizwan has been one of the best batters in the T20 format this season, scoring runs for fun since being promoted to the top of Pakistan's batting unit. The wicketkeeper-batter is in decent form as well and should be a good addition to your BAN vs PAK Dream11 fantasy team ahead of Nurul, who is expected to bat lower down the order.
Babar Azam: Babar Azam has surprisingly not scored many runs in this series, succumbing to pace on both occasions The Pakistan captain is one of the best batters in the world and given his hunger for runs, he is a must-have in your BAN vs PAK Dream11 fantasy team.
Afif Hossain: AfIf Hossain has looked in good form for Bangladesh in the series, even scoring some runs in the previous game. Although he isn't expected to play a part with the ball, Afif's batting prowess makes him a player to watch out for in this game.
Mustafizur Rahman: Mustafizur Rahman has impressed in this series with his array of variations, especially his off-cutters. However, Bangladesh will need more from Mustafizur given his reputation and skill. The nature of the pitch plays into the left-armer's hands, with his cutters likely to earn him a wicket or two in this game.
