Nomoskar! Hello and Welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of Bangladesh vs England 2016-17. This is the third and final One-Day International (ODI) of the series and here you will get all the live updates of the match. England started off the series with a victory while Bangladesh won a leveler in the next match. The match is scheduled to be played at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong. Both the teams look to be equally powered. While Bangladesh have the home side advantage, England are the favourites looking at the team they have and their latest performance and the decider is expected to be a close competition. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Bangladesh vs England, 3rd ODI at Mirpur

Bangladesh, though a new rising power in the cricketing world, have displayed good cricket and won hearts all over. The team looks strong with a balanced batting and bowling unit. The team has performed well with the bat in recent times, the most consistent performer being Tamim Iqbal. Tamim is one of the most experienced members of the side and has scored runs regularly in the last series. The player is yet to shine in this and is expected to do well with the last chance in hand before the Test series. Two other names who have played important roles with the bat are Imrul Kayes and Shakib Al Hasan.

Bangladesh bowlers have also impressed with their performance. Mashrafe Mortaza has emerged as the perfect leader, remaining extremely effective with the ball and leading the bowling attack. Shakib, besides being successful with the bat, has been a crucial element of the bowling unit as the leading spinner.

England on the other hand have not played up to the mark. With a change in leadership, the team has lost its usual rhythm and looks a bit scattered despite having a lot of talented players by the side. The top-order has failed to perform at all while the middle-order has taken up responsibilities. Newbie Ben Duckett has been impressive with the bat up the order.

Jake Ball’s performance with the ball has been the highlight of the English bowling performance. The young bowler has utilised whatever the conditions had on offer and produced successful spells. Bangladesh pitches support spin and Adil Rashid has been the most effective utilising that. The only part that the England team needs to take care of is  the top-order to get a kick start to their batting.

Squads:

Bangladesh: Mashrafe Mortaza (c), Al-Amin Hossain, Imrul Kayes, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mosharraf Hossain, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Nasir Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Shafiul Islam, Shakib Al Hasan, Soumya Sarkar, Tamim Iqbal, Taskin Ahmed.

England: Jos Buttler (c&wk), Moeen Ali, Johnny Bairstow, Jake Ball, Sam Billings, Liam Dawson, Ben Duckett, Steven Finn, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, David Willey, Chris Woakes.
