3rd T20: England need 159 runs to avoid 'Banglawash' 

Bangladesh set a 159-run target for England in their third and final match of the T20I series in Mirpur of Dhaka on Tuesday (March 14).

Earlier, England won the toss and opted to field first in the match at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Tigers managed to score 158 runs in the stipulated 20 overs as Liton Das stroked 73 runs off 57 balls while Najmul Hossain Shanto 47 off 36 balls and Rony Talukdar took 24 off 22 balls.

Adil Rashid and Chris Jordan bagged one wicket each.

Meanwhile, two changes for Bangladesh, including a debut for the left-arm spinner, Tanvir Islam. Shamim also returns for Afif.

Bangladesh have already won two matches of the T20I series to clinch their maiden series win over England and a third win in a row will be an icing on the cake for them.

Bangladesh achieved a clean sweep in an T20I series of three or more matches just once in their history against Ireland in 2012.

Bangladesh: 1 Rony Talukdar, 2 Litton Das (wk), 3 Najmul Hossain Shanto, 4 Shakib Al Hasan (capt), 5 Towhid Hridoy, 6 Shamim Hossain, 7 Mehidy Hasan Miraz, 8 Tanvir Islam, 9 Taskin Ahmed, 10 Hasan Mahmud, 11 Mustafizur Rahman

England: 1 Phil Salt, 2 Jos Buttler (capt & wk), 3 Dawid Malan, 4 Ben Duckett, 5 Moeen Ali, 6 Sam Curran, 7 Chris Woakes, 8 Chris Jordan, 9 Rehan Ahmed, 10 Adil Rashid, 11 Jofra Archer.
