With the three-match T20I series levelled 1-1, all the focus is on the decider in Nagpur on Sunday (November 10) when India and Bangladesh go head to head for the Paytm trophy. 

In the meantime, however, the visitors have a serious headache over two of their main players who are doubtful starters for the summit-clash. 

Having already lost all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan to the controversial fixing scandal before this tour, Bangladesh now has the injuries to pacer Mustafizur Rahman and middle-order batsman Mosaddek Hossain to tackle.

It was reported by that young Mosaddek has procured a thigh injury and was unable to either bat or ball in the nets where Mustafizur also didn't do much beyond the early warm-up. Both could be duly replaced if the touring selectors feel they aren't ready for the contest.

The hosts, led by stand-in captain Rohit Sharma, don't have any such problem, though, and could go in with an unchanged eleven from Rajkot with the exception of struggling left-arm pacer Khaleel Ahmed.
