New Zealand and Bangladesh in Ireland Tri-Series
Ireland vs Bangladesh, 4th Match – 10:45 AM Local Time (3:15 PM IST)
The Village, Dublin
With both teams getting points only for games that could not take place, they both will look to beat each other to get close to NZ who sit pretty on top with 8 points from 2 matches. Both teams must play fearless to gain the 2nd spot. They are certainly talented enough to put up a show.
For Bangladesh, They will be happy with the form Soumya Sarkar and Iqbal getting 50’s in previous matches along with keeper Rahim and Mahamudullah.
They are preparing well for the Champions Trophy coming up soon. They will hope that Shakib can get back after falling cheaply in past 2 matches.
They certainly need to improve their batting skills at death. The game against NZ saw they well placed for a 300 runs total but they faltered to only 257-9.
When they got the opportunity to bowl first they got the top order of Ireland cheaply and all bowlers did a pretty decent job out there.
The hosts, who have best chances to make right judgement of conditions at Dublin have been unable to make use of home conditions. With the bat, they lacked to string crutial partnerships in the bowling. They will look at this match as a chance to put a strong competition.
With the only outing with the bat, and a superlative 100 from Niall O’Brian, others kept losing wickets at the other end. They do have good resources to do the job and just have to focus on it.
Ireland must look at the larger picture thinking that they do have it in them to play bigger teams and play well but will have to put an entire performance, not just glimpses.
What to expect:
Prediction of rain has been the case and with 51% of thunderstorm today, we keep fingers crossed.
Ireland: Looking to strengthen their batting & decided to bring in 30-year-old Simi Singh, who made his debut against NZ. They might look to stay with him, considering Ireland’s batting was what was let down in the last game, despite Simi failing to make the impression.
Bangladesh: Rubel Hussain got the opportunity in place of Taskin last match but might switch again to give Taskin a bowl this time. We are not expecting them to change many players.
