Ishan has been India's first choice opener in the pecking order.

Ishan Kishan grabbed the recent opportunity with both hands in international cricket. He hit one of the best centuries by an Indian batter in one-day internationals.

The southpaw broke the longest century drought in the history of Indian cricket.

Ishan is the first Indian opener to score a hundred for India in men’s ODIs since Rohit Sharma v AUS in January 2020.

The gap of 1056 days is the longest for India. Earlier, Bangladesh won the toss and invited India to bat first in the final ODI of a three-match series.

India have already lost the opening two games, which led to their second consecutive ODI series defeat on the home soil of Bangladesh.

Lineups:

Bangladesh: Anamul Haque, Liton Das (captain), Yasir Ali, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Ebadot Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed.

India: Shikhar Dhawan, Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, K.L Rahul (captain), Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik.
