Pakistan take on Bangladesh with aim to break losing jinx in final ODI
DHAKA – Pakistan will play its third and final ODI against Bangladesh at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur on Wednesday.
Bangladesh that leads the series 2-0 is aiming for a rare whitewash. It will be a historic feat for Bangladesh if it wins the final ODI against Pakistan.
On the other side, Pakistan will put its best effort to win the last game; as it needs some momentum to go into the Test match series and a Twenty20 match against the home side.
Pakistan will likely bring in Umar Gul in place of Rahat Ali. Zulfiqar Babar could come in to add to the spin attack though with Hafeez now allowed to bowl, they could go with Ajmal as the only specialist spinner.
Bangladesh (probable): Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Sabbir Rahman, Nasir Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Arafat Sunny, Taskin Ahmed, Rubel Hossain
Pakistan (probable): Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Azhar Ali (capt), Mohammad Hafeez, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Rizwan, Fawad Alam, Saad Nasim, Wahab Riaz, Junaid Khan, Saeed Ajmal, Umar Gul.
