Toss Bangladesh chose to bat vs India
The toss of the coin landed in Nigar Sultana’s favour and Bangladesh opted to bat first in the series-deciding third ODI against India in Mirpur.
India made a solitary change from their winning combination from the second match, bringing in Shafali Verma ^(https://lotus365.today/goto/https://www.espncricinfo.com/cricketers/shafali-verma-1182523) to the XI. Priya Punia, who returned to the ODI side after March 2021, was left out after she returned scores of 10 and 7 in the first two games.
Bangladesh left out left-handed opener Murshida Khatun after two low scores and Sharmin Akhter and brought in Shamima Sultana ^(https://lotus365.today/goto/https://www.espncricinfo.com/cricketers/shamima-sultana-535870) brought back Sobhana Mostary ^(https://lotus365.today/goto/https://www.espncricinfo.com/cricketers/sobhana-mostary-1145089). Sobhana did not take the field after being hit on her head while taking a catch in the second T20I and missed the subsequent third T20I and the first two ODIs. Murshida came in as a concussion sub in that game.
After Bangladesh won the opening ODI, India drew level in the second.
