India vs Bangladesh: BAN Playing 11 for IND- 3rd ODI. Bangladesh face off against India in the third and final ODI in Chattogram on December 10 eyeing an elusive series whitewash.

They are leading the series 2-0 after winning the first two games. They won the first ODI by 1 wicket and the second by five runs. Interestingly, Bangladesh lost to India in the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup leading up to this series.

Bangladesh won the last bilateral series they played against India 2-1 back in 2015. With an even more experienced side now, they are looking for a clean sweep. Mehidy Hasan is the hero so far for the Tigers in the first two games.

He scored a match-winning 38 in the first. His century laid the platform for Bangladesh’s win in the second ODI. Shakib A Hasan has been another key figure picking up seven wickets in the series including a fifer in the first ODI.

Mehidy has been the in-form player for Bangladesh with both bat and ball. He scored an unbeaten 100 in the last ODI and picked up two for 46. The Tigers would ideally hope that he replicates his performance in Chattogram.
