Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram, Pitch Report: Batting And Bowling Bangladesh vs India, 3rd ODI Preview (12/10/22): India tour of Bangladesh 2022 – Live Cricket Score

Tomorrow’s third One-Day International (ODI) between India and Bangladesh will be played at Chattogram’s Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium. The first two matches were held in Mirpur, so it would be intriguing to see what sort of track awaits both sides in Chattogram.

It is a perfect opportunity for Bangladesh to achieve a clean sweep of India. After a poor showing in the T20 World Cup, the Bangladesh tigers have performed admirably in one-day internationals. Mehidy Hasan Miraz is in top form, and Shakib al Hasan will be a major danger once again.

India will be without Rohit Sharma, while Deepak Chahar is also certain to miss the game. The Indian hitters have been terrible, and the bowlers have been unable to capitalise on the good starts they have received in this series.

Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium pitch report

After two games in Mirpur, the third match will be played in Chattogram, and a new pitch is expected. This is a surface that spinners will enjoy bowling and hitters will struggle to find their rhythm, much like every other in Bangladesh.

The average first innings ODI score at this stadium is 216 runs, indicating that batsmen have struggled here. The powerplay overs will be the greatest overs for batting sides to score runs. Pacers can generate some movement in the early overs.

Earlier this year, Bangladesh and Afghanistan played an ODI at this ground, where Bangladesh were bowled out for 192 runs. Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi, the Afghan spin combination, were outstanding in that encounter. Both India and Bangladesh have the option of going spin-heavy in this encounter.

The dew factor will be important in this match as well, especially in the last two hours, but batting first is also a good choice because the opening overs will be the best to bat on this track.
