The Tigers have already lost the series after losing the first two matches to Pakistan. This time Mahmudullah's men will be stepping into the field in order to prevent a whitewash. Bangladesh will take on Pakistan for the third and final T20I of the three match series on Monday.
The third and final match of the three-match T20 series between host Bangladesh and visiting Pakistan will start at 2pm Bangladesh time. After winning the first two matches, Pakistan has already secured the series win with a 2-0 lead.
The Bangladesh team, which played with the same XI in the first two matches, will definitely change the XI in this match. Saif Hasan, on whom the team had confidence in the first two matches, will be dropped in the third match. Fast bowler Mustafizur Rahman is also unlikely to play due to injury.
Parvez Hossain Emon might be making his debut on Monday. There is a strong possibility that one of, if not both, Shohidul Islam or Kamrul Islam Rabbi will be making their T20I debut as well, due to the injuries of pacers Mustafizur Rahman and Shoriful Islam. There is also a chance to see Nasum Ahmed play on the third game.
Pakistan might make a few changes of their own, as the series is already in the bag. Players who haven't got an opportunity yet might be tested on Monday.
