The final game an opportunity to try out some new faces, but they would certainly want to make a statement with a series sweep.

Among teenagers Muhammad Musa, Amad Butt and Usman Qadir, any one or two could be handed an international debut.

Bangladesh look unsure of how to go about handling Pakistan’s bowling attack.

Their bowling also hasn’t come to the show, with senior quick Mustafizur Rahman guilty of erring in lines and lengths in the first two games.

Their lack of a genuine spinner has also added to the lack of balance, as Bangladesh are a team that has always banked on spinners to do a lot of the work even in T20Is.

Middle-order batter Najmul Hossain Shanto, who impressed in the Bangladesh Premier League, might also be considered for the final T20I.

Pakistan skipper and No 1 batsman in the world, Babar Azam (66*) helped Pakistan chase down the 137-run target with nine wickets and 3.2 overs to spare in the second T20I.

The captain assisted by veteran batsman Mohammad Hafeez, who also played an excellent unbeaten innings of 67. Both the hosts batsmen punished Bangladesh bowlers at their will and landed home safely.

The match scheduled to be played at 2 pm local time.
