Bangladesh has been clinical in the series and has taken an unassailable 2-0 lead with one more game to go. The hosts who had struggled to victory in the first game came up with a strong performance in the last game and shall be aiming for a 3-0 series win here. Their bowlers have been in great form and the side would take confidence from that.
Afghanistan played a catch-up game in the 2nd ODI and the side couldn't come out of the shocking defeat in the previous game. Their batsmen have looked rusty and the side would need them to do well in this game. It will be interesting to see if they can avoid a series whitewash in this game.
Tamim Iqbal would be pleased with the big win in the 2nd game. They got a scare in the 1st game only to be rescued by their lower middle order. The 88-run win in the last game was a clinical show from their batsmen and bowlers. Iqbal would like his side to maintain the same momentum here and make it 3-0 for the series.
Liton Das hit a brilliant hundred in the last game but skipper Tamim Iqbal has looked in poor form and he must do well. In the middle order, the side has good strength with Shabib Al Hasan, Yasir Ali, and Mushfiqur Rahim in the side, and Rahim comes into this game with good form. Afif Hossain and Mehidy Hasan have done well with the bat and they add firepower to the lower middle order with Mahmudullah.
Mustafizur Rahman and Shoriful Islam did well with the new ball and the side would like them to strike early in this game. Taskin Ahmed has done well and along with Shakib and Mehidy Hasan would like to keep the Afghan batsmen in check. Afif Hossain and Mahmudullah add depth to this attack.

Hashmatullah Shahidi would want his side to fight for a face-saving win in this game. They were completely outplayed in the last game. Their batting has looked rusty in both games with key batsmen failing to contribute. They are up against a very good bowling attack and Shahidi would want to see a better approach from his batsmen.
Rahmat Shah did well in the last game but he would need support from Riaz Hassan opening the batting for the side. Shahidi must anchor the innings in the middle order with Azmatullah Omarzai and Najibullah Zardan. Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Mohammad Nabi, and Rashid Khan are experienced players and they would need to come up with contributions down the order.
Fazalhaq Farooqi has looked good and he would have to get early breakthroughs for the side along with Fareed Ahmad. Rashid Khan and Mujeeb ur Rahman haven’t used the conditions as much as they would have liked and have an important role in this game. The side would also need Nabi and Omarzai to do well in this game.

The skies over Chattogram would be clear on February 28. The wicket has played slow in two games and the ball hasn’t come easily to the bat. Batsmen have to play with caution on this surface as spinners are generating turn. The side batting first would be happy with a score above 280 runs.
Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram balances it out between the batsmen and bowlers in ODI cricket. There isn’t much on this track for the fast bowlers. The fast outfield here allows plenty of scoring opportunities. Spinners have enjoyed a good record here in the past.
In most games played here in the recent past sides have won games chasing scores. The wicket is tricky to bat on at times and the conditions ease as the game progresses. The side winning the toss in this game would decide to bowl first in the game.
Afghanistan came to Bangladesh with a poor record in the country and they haven’t done enough to improve their reputation. Their batting has looked weak and they don’t seem to be a match for the Bangladeshi bowlers. Bangladesh has its bowlers in good form and this would make them favorites in this contest.
