England lost two wickets in the last five overs, but they managed to keep the asking rate in control with Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes playing sensibly.

They now need another 29 runs from 30 balls to win the crunch match.

For Bangladesh, skipper Mashrafe ​Mortaza has completed his quota of 10 overs, taking two wickets. He leaked 32 balls.

Over 40 | Score 221/4 | (Stokes 27*, Buttler 19*)

With required run rate under 6, England don't feel the surge to hit boundaries. Singles and double doing the business as of now.

A couple of wickets get the hosts back in the match as England look for another 86 runs to win the 3rd and final ODI.

Over 30 | Score 153/2 | (Duckett 50*, Bairstow 13*)

England need 119 more runs to win from 20 overs left. With 8 wickets in hand, there is no reason why the Three Lions won't be able to clinch the series with a victory here unless Bangladesh produces something magical.

Over 25 | Score 129/2| (Duckett 32*, Bairstow 2*)

The moment Bangladesh have been looking for comes in the 25th over as Sam Billings falls to Mosaddek Hossain, who tried to sweep but got an thick edge which fell straight into the hands of Imrul Kayes.

SW Billings c Imrul Kayes b Mosaddek Hossain 62 (69b)

Over 20 | Score 108/1 | (Billings 51*, Duckett 24*)

Half-century up for Billings, as England look solid despite losing Vince early. Bangladesh need a couple of wickets quickly to keep their challenge intact.

Over 12 | Score 63/1 | (Billings 14*, Vince 12*)

Finally a breakthrough for Bangladesh in the decider. England lose James Vince to Nasir Hossain after a promising 32-run inning. A couple of more wickets here and the hosts will be back in the game.

JM Vince lbw b Nasir Hossain 32 (37b) 

Over 5 | Score 26/0 | (Billings 14*, Vince 12*)

England off to a steady start! Billings collided with Mortaza in the 5th over and there were some arguments in the middle of the pitch after the Bangladeshi bowler prevented the Englishman from taking a second run.

Bangladesh innings

Over 50 | Score 277/6 | (Rahim 67*, Hossain 38*)

Terrific recovery from Bangladesh to score 50 runs in the last five overs and give a competitive target of 278 runs to England.

Over 45 | Score 227/6 | (Rahim 36*, Hossain 19*)

Bangladesh building the innings with realistic targets in mind at this late stage of the game. A 270 run total would bring back the match back level in the 3rd and final ODI.

Over 40 | Score 198/6 | (Rahim 26*, Hossain 3*)

Adil Rashid bags 4 as Bangladesh see more than half of their team back in pavilion without touching the 200-run mark. The hosts would be fortunate to finish with a total of 250+ on the board.

Nasir Hossain c Vince b Rashid 4 (10b)

Shakib Al Hasan st Buttler b Ali 4 (10b)

Sabbir Rahman c †Buttler b Rashid 49 (46b)

Over 25 | Score 124/3 | (Rahman 19*, Rahim 0*)

Double blow for Bangladesh! Rashid removes both Iqbal and Mahamudullah to bring the game in balance again. Rahim-Rahman pairing needs to put a strong show from here.


Over 20 | Score 86/1 | (Iqbal 35*, Rahman 1*)

Ben Stokes got the first breakthrough for England when Kayes, who was looking good, holed one easy catch towards square leg. The wicket also ended the 80-run opening stand. Sabbir Rahman is the next man in.

Imrul Kayes c sub (LA Dawson) b Stokes 46 (58b)

Over 15 | Score 65/0 | (Kayes 37*, Iqbal 26*)

The first six of the match came in the 11th over when Kayes made room against Plunkett and launched him over covers for a maximum. Barring that six, Bangladesh failed to score any more boundaries till the 15th over. 65 is not a bad score considering the hosts have a strong batting line-up. England need a couple of wickets to disrupt their rhythm.

Over 10 | Score 42/0 | (Kayes 23*, Iqbal 18*)

The openers continue to be cautious with their approach. Credit must go to English bowlers as well who have been disciplined with their line and length so far.  

Over 5 | Score 23/0 | (Kayes 13*, Iqbal 9*)

Quiet start by hosts so far. A cautious start, possibly considering the importance of the match. This Bangladeshi batting line-up is quite deep as skipper Mashrafe Mortaza bats at No. 9. Both the openers would be looking to step up the tempo in the next ten overs.

Changes: England have made two changes while Bangladesh are playing with the same XI

TOSS: England won the toss and Jos Buttler has decided to bowl first.

After losing the first ODI by 21 runs, hosts Bangladesh bounced back to level series by winning the next match. Skipper Mashrafe Mortaza led from the front as apart from scoring crucial 44 runs lower down the order, he also ripped through the English batting line-up with a four-wicket haul.

A lot of tempers flared during the second ODI, where a controversy triggered after Jos Buttler lost his cool when Bangladeshi players animatedly celebrated his dismissal. The heat of the moment got to the players as Mahmudullah and Buttler had a fierced argument with both charging towards each other.

It didn't end there as even after the match, Ben Stokes exchanged a few heated words with Tamim Iqbal during post-match handshakes.

The fans could however be deprived of some quality action as the decider is likely to be washed out due to inclement weather conditions.

Here is all that you need to know about the third ODI:


England: Jason Roy, James Vince, Ben Duckett, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (wk), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Jake Ball

Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Imrul Kayes, Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Mosharraf Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Shafiul Islam
