After beating Ireland at home, the Bangladesh team has gone to play in England. And in the first one-day match of the three-match series, the two teams are facing each other tomorrow (Tuesday). The match to be held at Chelmsford will start at 3:45 pm Bangladesh time. The match will not be broadcast live on any TV channel in the country.
This series to be held in England is not very important for Bangladesh but it is important for the Irish. In order to play directly in the ICC ODI World Cup next October-November, the host Irish have to whitewash Bangladesh.
The Tigers aim to continue their winning streak and get used to a set plan that will help them in the World Cup. The Ireland series is the perfect medium to set that plan.
Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal said, ‘Players have to rotate and play and see which combination will be helpful for us.’
Bangladesh-Ireland have played a total of 13 ODI matches against each other so far. Where the winning rate of Bangladesh is higher. Bangladesh has won a total of 9 matches. In 2 matches. And the remaining two matches were abandoned.
In the 2007 ODI World Cup in Bridgetown, West Indies, Ireland won against Bangladesh for the first time. The Irish last beat Bangladesh in 2010 in Belfast. After that, Ireland could not resist in any of the matches played against Bangladesh.
