India will take on Bangladesh in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) of the three-match series at the Zahur Ahmed Chaudhary Stadium in Chattogram on Saturday, December 10. Bangladesh won the second one-day international by five runs to take a 2-0 lead in the series and are going for a clean sweep, while the Indians are desperate for a win.

The Men in Blue had the advantage over the hosts by restricting Bangladesh to 69-6 after Litton Das won the toss and elected to bat first. However, Mehidy Hasan and Mahmudullah put on a record partnership for the seventh wicket to help Bangladesh post a massive total of 271 on the board. This is India’s second consecutive ODI series defeat on Bangladeshi soil.

Batters Are Not Sure Of Their Position – Danish Kaneria

Former Pakistan cricketer Danish Kaneria believes that Indian cricket is more important than franchise cricket. Kaneria noted that there is money in franchise cricket but there is also money in international cricket.

“Stop thinking about the IPL and think about the country. Indian cricket is most important, not franchise cricket. There is money in franchise cricket, but you can earn money from international cricket as well. Unless and until you start giving importance to international cricket, these kinds of results will continue,” Kaneria said on his Youtube channel.

“Batters are not sure of their position because they have been asked to bat at various positions over the last few months. The bowling attack has kept changing. There has been no proper planning or execution. I don’t even think there is a plan in place. Indian cricket has gone down and Bangladesh have got a very good chance of winning the Test matches as well.”

The Men in Blue suffered a major setback with captain Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Sen, and Deepak Chahar ruled out due to injuries. KL Rahul will lead the team in Rohit’s absence, who is also expected to miss the Test Series against Bangladesh.
