Hosts Bangladesh will take the field in the third and final match at Zahoor Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong tomorrow, aiming to avoid a whitewash in the three-match ODI series against visiting England. The match started at 12 noon will be shown live by T-Sports channel. In 2012, Bangladesh were last whitewashed by Pakistan in a three-match ODI series at home. Then in 2014, Bangladesh lost 2-0 to India in the three-match series. Ever since that series against India, Bangladesh started improving in the ODI format. Apart from starting a streak of winning matches on foreign soil, they became unstoppable at home. Before this series against England, the Tigers had lost only 1 series in 2016. Coincidentally, Bangladesh once again lost the series to England. After winning the seven ODI series at home, the Tigers finally lost. Although they have a habit of playing aggressive cricket, England won against Bangladesh in the first two matches by adapting to the conditions. In the first match, the English won by 3 wickets after handling the Bangladeshi spinners very well. England won the series by 132 runs in the second ODI. The Chittagong venue has been a nightmare for Bangladesh in recent times, especially because of the slow pitch. Bangladesh lost by the second biggest margin in their ODI history at this venue just three months ago. They lost the match to India by 227 runs. Batting first, India scored 409 runs for 8 wickets. In reply, Bangladesh were bowled out for 182 runs. The second match at Mirpur proved what England can do with the advantage on the batting pitch. That’s why even though Chittagong’s wicket is the same, Bangladesh’s chances of avoiding a whitewash will be slim. Before the third match Bangladesh spin bowling coach Rangana Herath said, ‘Being part of the losing team will not be pleasant but that is part of the match. We want to stand up as a strong team. He also said, ‘We want to take the challenge. We are determined to do well against the champions of this format. Bangladesh may make some changes in the XI of the third and last one-dayer of the series. England’s top-order batsmen batted well in the first two matches. Chittagong’s wicket will surely be happy if it is helpful for the batsmen. Bangladesh and England have played 23 matches so far. The English have won 19 of them. Bangladesh won in only 4. As the only Test playing country, England has not yet lost an ODI series to Bangladesh.
