India will look to salvage some pride when they lock horns with Bangladesh in the third ODI at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Saturday, December 10. Bangladesh, meanwhile, will look to inflict a whitewash in the three-match ODI series.
India suffered two humiliating defeats in the first two games. The Men in Blue failed to chase down 271 runs and lose the match by five runs. Skipper Rohit Sharma, who suffered a finger dislocation while fielding, came out to bat at No.9. He scored a valiant unbeaten half-century but couldn’t take his side over the rope.
The tourists, meanwhile, will miss the service of their skipper, who has been ruled out of the ODI series. They will look to make some changes to their playing XI as the Indian think tank continue to audition for the ODI World Cup at home next year.

Bangladesh have already sealed a historic ODI series win, with the likes of Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Shakib Al Hasan standing out with both bat and ball. They will look to keep their winning momentum going with the ODI World Cup Super League up for grabs.
Details: India (IND) vs Bangladesh (BAN), 3rd ODI
Date and Time: 10th December 2022, 11:30 AM IST
Venue: Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram
The last time Bangladesh played here was earlier this year against Afghanistan. Only once did a team go past 300 across six innings in that series. Expect a lot of turn from this wicket.
Predicted Playing XIs
India (IND): Rahul Tripathi/Ishan Kishan, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (c&wk), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Umran Malik, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav/Shahbaz Ahmed and Mohammed Siraj.
Bangladesh (BAN): Najmul Hossain Shanto, Litton Das (c), Anamul Haque, Shakib al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Mahmudullah Riyad, Afif Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mustafizur Rahman, Ebadot Hossain and Nasum Ahmed.
While India were tipped as the favourites to win the series, hosts Bangladesh have stunned everyone to wrap up the series with one match still to go. Although the hosts will be brimming with confidence, India are likely to pull one back and finish the series at 1-2. However, Betway has placed its bet on Bangladesh at 2.95.
