Bangladesh will take on Pakistan in the third and final T20I of the ongoing three-match series at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka on Monday.

Pakistan have already clinched the series with triumphs in first two matches. The visitors won the series opener by four wickets while the second contest by eight wickets. The Babar Azam-led side will be looking to register another victory in order to attain a clean sweep.

Similarly, Bangladesh would be focusing on coming back in the dead rubber to disallow the tourists from whitewashing them in the T20I leg.

Head-to-Head record:

Played: 14 | BAN won: 02 | PAK won: 12 | No result: 0
