Bangladesh will have a lot to ponder regarding after the loss in the first game but do not have too much time as they face Pakistan less than 24 hours later than the first match. Bangladesh made four changes to the team squad from its unsatisfactory Twenty20 World Cup, including a debut to Saif Hassan. Bangladesh lost all of their matches in the Super 12 piece of the competition. The previous time Bangladesh and Pakistan met in T20Is was almost two years ago in January 2020 when Bangladesh toured Pakistan for a 3-match T20I series.

The Mahmudullah-led Bangladesh were plagued by abundance of batting and bowling issues, counting the loss of all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan, who was ruled out through an injury in the middle of the tournament. Babar Azam, the winning skipper of Pakistan, thought that it was a team attempt and they carried on through their winning momentum.
The visitors lead 2-0 and have also claimed triumph in the series. Chasing a target of 109 runs, Pakistan reached 109 for 2 in 18.1 overs through Fakhar Zaman smashing an winning knock of 57 off 51 balls. Bangladesh finished 6th and last in Group 1 of the Super 12 stage of the ICC T20 World Cup, losing all 5 games and they would be hoping to forget the unsuccessful campaign and take on the dangerous-looking Pakistan, who looked inexorable before they were beaten by Australia in a theatrical T20 World Cup semifinal.
Opener Mohammad Rizwan also played a bang of 39 off 45 balls to give his side a high-quality start despite the early loss of skipper Babar Azam. Bangladesh also recall batsman Najmul Hossain, leg-spinner Aminul Islam and wicketkeeper Nurul Hasan, who miss two World Cup matches due to injury.
