The third and final match of the three-match T20I series between Bangladesh and Pakistan will be played on Monday at the Shere Bangla Stadium in Dhaka.
Bangladesh have already lost the series after losing the first two games. It was a poor effort from their batters in the last game. After electing to bat first, Bangladesh could only manage 108 runs on the board, losing seven wickets. Najmul Hossain Shanto looked good with his 40, but lacked support from the other end.
Pakistan began their chase by losing Babar Azam early. But a steady partnership between Mohammad Rizwan and Fakhar Zaman helped them recover. The latter remained unbeaten on 57 to guide his team across the line.
The visitors eventually chased down the target with 11 deliveries to spare, winning the game by eight wickets. Pakistan will be high on confidence as they eye a series clean sweep. Bangladesh, meanwhile, will need to be at their absolute best to avoid a series whitewash.
