Rohit Sharma fought hard with an injured finger but could not prevent India from losing their second consecutive ODI series in Bangladesh. Along with the loss, India are going into the upcoming game with three players less in their squad. Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Sen and Deepak Chahar are all out due to various injuries.
Bangladesh are going well and are continuing to rule as tigers at home. The wins are coming and Mehidy Hasan has put up a performance worthy of the man of the tournament award.

The Weather at Chattogram is pretty good for the upcoming game.
The Chattogram track is slow and low and will spin as the game progresses. Batting first is a better option.

A blinder in the first game and an edge onto the stumps in the second leaves Virat Kohli with just 14 runs in the series. He has been in decent form, but India will want more from their premier batter, who ideally has the capability to produce a lot more. His form is still not a concern but given the upcoming game is a dead rubber, India will want Virat Kohli to spend some time out in the middle and get his rhythm back.
Mehidy Hasan Miraj has handsomely walked into a role as an all-rounder. He is bowling well and keeping things tight with the ball as always. With the bat though, Miraj has turned a corner. Both games were won thanks to him and his performance with the bat. He is proving to be a proper all-rounder now and leaves a lot to be wondered on how much he will move ahead in the coming months.
Bangladesh are a pretty strong side at home. India though are coming in at full-strength and some of their players have a lot to prove in the upcoming game. They are coming off a win and look very confident while India are far from confident with their performances.
