Bangladesh fielded an unchanged team for the third match in a row and will be seeking to repeat the win they achieved in the first match of the series at the same venue on Friday.

“I have been playing for Bangladesh for more than 15 years. If we can win today it will be one of our biggest achievements,” said Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal, who made his international debut in 2007.

Bavuma said the match pitch “looks a bit different” from the one used on Friday.

“It looks a really good wicket. We will try to get runs on the board and put them under pressure.”
