Toss Ireland won the coin toss and elected to bowl bangladesh

Ireland captain Andy Balbirnie decided to bowl first after winning the toss in the third ODI against Bangladesh at Chelmsford. Balblirnie chose to bowl first in the first ODI, while Tamim Iqbal did the same in the second ODI as he won the coin toss.

The visitors are without Shakib Al Hasan, who sustained a finger injury during the second ODI on Friday. Shakib fumbled to get the ball when George Dockrell hit one in his direction. Shakib batted later in the game, but was ruled out on Saturday.
The home side chose Craig Young instead of Graham Hume, who scored 57 runs in six overs on Friday, while the visitors have two debutants between their three substitutions. Mrittunjoy Chowdhury, the left-arm fast bowler, makes his debut in place of Shoriful Islam, while Mustafizur Rahman replaces Taijul Islam.
Rony Talukdar makes his ODI debut in place of Shakib, although it is not yet clear where he will bat in the line-up.

Ireland: 1 Stephen Doheny, 2 Paul Stirling, 3 Andy Balbirnie (capt), 4 Harry Tector, 5 Lorcan Tucker (wk), 6 Curtis Campher, 7 George Dockrell, 8 Andrew McBrine, 9 Mark Adair, 10 Craig Young, 11 Josh Little
