This is Ayush Gupta, and I will be bringing you the live cricket score and updates by the end of every over. READ: Bangladesh vs Pakistan, one-off T20 preview

Following an emphatic whitewash over Pakistan in the ODI series, drubbing them 3-0, Bangladesh are high on confidence as seem to be riding on lady luck as they look to take them on in the shortest format of the game and try their luck in this very format as they are yet to register their first win in this format against this very team.

Pakistan, on the other hand, have suffered an embarrassing and humiliating defeat at the hand of the minnows in the sub-continent, following their good run in the just-concluded ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 in Australia and New Zealand. They might be running low on confidence, unlike Bangladesh at present. However, T20 being a different ball game is all set to give them a renewed confidence and their clean sheet so far in the format against them could be of great boost.
