Riding on Shreyas Iyer’s and KL Rahul blistering knocks, India have mustered 174 runs in the first innings of India vs Bangladesh 3rd T20I 2019. The visitors won the toss and invited India to bat first. Their decision looked spot-on as both Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan were dismissed cheaply. However, the young shoulders of Rahul and Iyer took the onus and brought the Indian innings back on track. The former mustered 52 of 35 deliveries while Iyer, who registered his maiden T20I fifty, played an even blistering knock and scored 66 off just 33 balls. For Bangladesh, Shaiful Islam and Soumya Sarkar took two wickets apiece. . India Vs Bangladesh, Live Cricket Score 3rd T20I Match. 

The wickets seem to be on the slower side and chasing this mammoth total will certainly not be easy for the visitors. All eyes will be on Mushfiqur Rahim and Skipper Mahmudullah, who were the chief architect of their side’s victory in the opening clash and will look to replicate their heroics again. However, the Men in Blue have the upper hand in the match and are looking favorites to clinch the match as well as the series.

The three-match T20I series is currently levelled at 1-1. So, the winner of the ongoing game will bag the series as well. Yuzvendra Chahal will be the biggest threat for the visitors as the leg-spinner has been phenomenal in the series and will seek to make a mark in the second innings of the match too. On the other hand, the Mahumudullah-led side is having a golden opportunity to script history by thrashing India in their own den.
