India Eye Unassailable 3-0 Lead in Bangladesh T20I Series

India, buoyed by their dominant performances in the first two matches, will aim to secure an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match T20I series against Bangladesh when they face off in the third encounter on Thursday.

The Indian team has been firing on all cylinders, with their bowling unit restricting Bangladesh to modest totals. Spinners Deepti Sharma, Radha Yadav, and Shreyanka Patil have been economical, while pacer Renuka Singh Thakur has starred with the ball in the opener. Pooja Vastrakar has also been a handy contributor.

In the batting department, Dayalan Hemalatha has impressed with her explosive batting during the powerplay, crafting an unbeaten 24-ball 41 in the last game. Shafali Verma, Yastika Bhatia, Harmanpreet Kaur, and Richa Ghosh have also contributed runs. However, star opener Smriti Mandhana will be eager to find form.

India's collective team effort has been a key factor in their success so far, and they will be looking for more of the same in the remaining games. The series holds added significance as the T20 World Cup is scheduled to be held in Bangladesh later this year.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, will be desperate to improve their performance in all three departments. Their batters have struggled to post big totals, while the bowlers have been unable to contain the Indian batters. The fielding has also been found wanting.
