The series decider

Both teams head into the third and final and T20I at Nagpur after having won a game each. Bangladesh had drawn the first blood at Delhi and India scored an equaliser at Rajkot. If India manage to win this one then it will be their first T20I home series win this year. They were whitewashed by Australia in the shortest format of the game earlier this year while their last T20I series against South Africa was tied at 1-1 after the first match was abandoned due to rain.
