VenueShere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur
The Bengal Tigers created a history by making a whitewash and winning the One Day International series against Pakistan at 3-0. The visitors were beaten almost in all departments of the game and they looked hopeless and a tired unit. The young guns of Bangladesh fired at their opponents from all corners and achieved the result that was being dreamed by them since long. Both teams will play one T20 at Mirpur but there will be some changes in their squads keeping in view the necessities required in the shortest versions of the game. Two teams have appeared in seven T20 Internationals and all of them were grabbed by the Green Shirts but the hosts will surely be anticipating grabbing the coming game.
Tamim Iqbal bulldozed the bowling attack of Pakistan, blasted 312 runs in three ODIs at a herculean average of 156.00 comprising two hundreds and one fifty. Mushfiqur Rahim and Soumya Sarkar are the other centurions while Mahmudullah, Nasir Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Rony Talukdar and Litton Das are ready to tease the visitors with their willows. Shakib Al Hasan will be their prime all-rounder while Arafat Sunny, Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Mashrafe Mortaza and Nasir Hossain are in prime form with the ball.
The Green Shirts will be led by the seasoned all-rounder, Shahid Afridi, who is a match winner on his day. Ahmed Shehzad, Sarfraz Ahmed, Saad Nasim, Mukhtar Ahmed and Mohammad Rizwan will look after their batting while Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail and Wahab Riaz are useful all-rounders. Rest of their bowling unit will comprise Junaid Khan, Sohail Tanvir, Umar Gul and Saeed Ajmal.
