Series: Ireland tour of Bangladesh, 2023
Bangladesh vs Ireland, 2nd ODI Afternoon one thirty pm
Venue: Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Sylhet
Bangladesh and Ireland are set to face each other in the second game of the three-match ODI series on Monday, March 20. The Sylhet International Cricket Stadium in Sylhet, Bangladesh, will host the contest.
Bangladesh, led by Tamim Iqbal, started the ODI series on a stupendous note with a 183-run win on Saturday, March 18. It was the biggest win in their ODI history. The Tigers didn’t have Mehidy Hasan Miraz,
who missed the game due to injury, but it didn’t bother them one bit.
After being put in to bat first, Bangladesh put up a massive score of 338 for the loss of eight wickets. Towhid Hridoy notched the highest score by a Bangladeshi batter on debut. He scored 92 runs off
85 balls before Graham Hume dismissed him. Hridoy also became only the seventh batter to get out in the 90s on their ODI debut.
Shakib Al Hasan was also unlucky not to score a hundred after Hume dismissed him on 93. Mushfiqur Rahim, who has been going through a rough patch, scored 44 runs off 26 balls at a strike-rate of 169.23.
Hume was the pick of the bowlers for Ireland as he took four wickets.
Stephen Doheny and Paul Stirling put on 60 runs for the opening wicket in 11.2 overs, but after their dismissals, the Irish innings fell apart. They were bowled out for 155 runs inside 31 overs.
George Dockrell scored 45 off 47 balls, but it was only damage limitation. Ebadot Hossain picked up four wickets for the Tigers.
The pitch in Sylhet is expected to be an excellent one for the batters. Run-scoring won’t be that tough. Batting first after winning the toss should be the way to go.
There will be a high chance of rainfall during the game. Temperatures will be around the 24-degree Celsius mark with high humidity.
