After a series of off-field events before the start of the tour, the T20I series between India and Bangladesh is looming for a thriller as both sides look to seal the series, which is leveled 1-1.

Unlike Delhi (air pollution) and Rajkot (cyclone), Nagpur fortunately does not possess any natural threat. And the series decider is all set to commence on the field.

The pitch looks good for the match. “There’s grass, but it doesn’t look like the ones that bind the surface together. Overall, it’s dry and crumby,” says Murali Kartik before the toss.

Bangladesh’s first T20I win over India came in the series opener in Delhi under Mahmudullah Riyad’s leadership, who guided his side to a seven-wicket victory. India, powered by skipper Rohit Sharma, struck back with eight-wicket win to square up the series in Rajkot.

Bangladesh XI:

Liton Das, Soumya Sakar, Naim Sheikh, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah (c), Afif Hossain, Mohammad Mithun , Aminul Islam, Shafiul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Al-Amin Hossain.

India XI:

Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Manish Pandey, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, K Khaleel Ahmed
