Players to watch out:

Murshida Khatun

The 24-year-old opening batter has made 16 ODI appearances, scoring 234 runs, including a highest score of 51*. Murshida hasn’t been in the best of forms lately; however, she has managed to get starts in the series and would now want to capitalize on them to produce a big inning.

Fahima Khatun

The 30-year-old all-rounder has featured in 29 ODIs, scoring 120 runs and taking 14 wickets. Fahima looked good during the T20Is, bagging 3 wickets in 2 games; however, she has gone wicketless in both ODI outings and would want to get back among the wickets to make her impact felt.

Smriti Mandhana

The 27-year-old batter has played 79 ODI games, scoring 3120 runs at an average of 42.73, with the highest score being 135. Smriti has put aside her poor form with a series of starts; however, she will want to build on those starts and notch up a long-awaited big inning with her blade.

Sneh Rana

The 25-year-old all-rounder has played in 24 ODIs, taking 25 wickets in her bowling innings and accumulating 204 runs in 18 outings with the bat. While Sneh Rana has consistently delivered economical spells with the ball, she’s just not going well with the bat and would like to get a few runs under her belt.

Pitch:

The Shere Bangla National Stadium features a typical sub-continent track that predominantly favors spinners, making it a challenging surface for batters, also reflected in the average score of 127. However, batters if show resilience and discipline, can manage to post strong totals.

Weather:

With rains on the radar throughout the day, including match hours, there is a possibility of rain playing spoilsport and potentially resulting in a washout. The temperature is expected to be around 33°C, with light winds and a humidity level of 68%.
