Bangladesh will lock horns with England in the third One-Day International (ODI) of the three series at Dhaka on Wednesday, which is expected to be a thriller of a game as the series is already leveled. The first game took many twists and turns as the hosts lost the momentum after being on the brink of a scintillating victory. It was heart-breaking for the Bangladeshi fans as they failed to soak in the pressure in the twilight of their run-chase. This is something, which also haunted them during the ICC World T20 encounter against India, where they lost an unexpected game in the final over wherein they choked at the crucial moment of the game.

The second one was a fortune turning game for the hosts, as their captain Mashrafe Mortaza played an all-rounder knock with bat and ball to help his side win the second contest and keep the series alive, earlier. England had the momentum going but a timely wicket of Jos Buttler which also saw a lot of heat involved saw the visitors losing the game. Bangladesh witnessed some actual clash on-field between Buttler and Bangladesh players, along with Ben Stokes and Tamim Iqbal involved in war of words. With all eyes set on the final ODI, following are some key clashes for the game:

Jason Roy vs Shakib Al Hasan– Jason Roy got a good start in the first ODI but floundered while trying to take on the wily spin of Shakib. He can inflict immense damage at the top if he gets going and can steer England in a commendable position in the powerplay overs. Shakib will once again took to put brakes on his run and end his innings early. One can expect, Shakib to be brought early into the attack as the left-arm spinner is well equipped to do so. The scenario was different in the second game as Roy could not score runs at all and, in fact, the whole of the England top-order collapsed within no time. It is very likely that Roy will be itching to go all guns blazing in the final ODI and make his mark yet once again.

Ben Duckett vs Taskin Ahmed – Duckett s impressive performance under pressure in the first ODI earned him accolades from many in the fraternity. He bid his time and kept the scoreboard ticking while England were in extreme pressure after losing a couple of wickets in quick succession. But the youngster failed miserably in the second ODI as he was clean bowled by Shakib for a duck.

On the other hand, Taskin Ahmed boasts of some serious pace and will look to test Duckett with it. He bowled well in the first game but remained wicketless, he will look to better his tally and Duckett will be the right customer for him. But he bounced back well in the second match as he picked up three wickets. He would be expecting to leak less runs in the final match and be economical as much as he can to pressurise the opponents more.

Imrul Kayes vs David Willey – Kayes played beautifully and continued his dream form in the first game. He scored runs at a good rate and engineered the run chase but was unfortunate not have landed on the winning side. Kayes will look to make an impact in the second game as well. David Willey swung the new ball and will eye to get the better of Kayes with the new ball early on in the innings and restrict him scoring big. Knowing the situation was not favouring England, it only got worse when Willey got the better of him.

So this competition would be worth watching as the fast pacer would be eager to get his man yet once again and on the other hand, Kayes would be expecting to score runs and cement his place in the team for longer run of time.

Jos Buttler vs Mashrafe Mortaza– This is going to be the most important clash of the evening. After what happened in the second ODI, the no apology claim has added more fuel to the fire. Buttler, on the other hand, has been very calm about this whole incidence since the time the match has got over and was regretful for his behaviour.

But what remains to be seen is how the attacking English batsman will be approaching the final match of the series and also what will be Mortaza s approach when Buttler would be out on the crease to bat.

Shakib Al Hasan vs Moeen Ali – Shakib s impact with the bat was instrumental in the first game and has been a match-winner for the side. He has the ability to get quick runs in the middle-order. Moeen Ali on the other hand gets the ball away from the left-handed batsman, which has also been Shakib s weakness. The battle between these two will be delightful to watch as Moeen has a knack of chipping wickets on a regular basis.

These two hold the key and are the spine of their respective teams. They have the caliber to undo the damage inflicted on their team within no time and to see these two players locking horns in an important clash of the series would be worthwhile to watch.
