Bangladesh will be locking horns against Ireland in the 1st of the three T20Is on Monday (March 27). Bangladesh will be locking horns against Ireland in the first of the three-match T20I series at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. After a thumping 2-0 series win in the ODI series, hosts Bangladesh will be eyeing more of the same in the shortest format.
Ireland, on the other hand, need a swift reply in the T20Is. They were outplayed in the 50-over format and Paul Stirling and company will be hoping for a change of fortunes with the change of format. Shakib Al Hasan is set to take the captaincy duties from Tamim Iqbal, who leads Bangladesh in ODIs. The Tigers will be taking confidence from their recent T20I series victory over World Champions England.
Ireland have a dismal record in Bangladesh and are yet to win a match against the hosts while travelling. Harry Tector, Curtis Campher will be crucial for them, and so will Mark Adair with the ball.
Bangladesh defeated England and they will be in pretty good stead. Shakib’s men will go into series opener as firm favorites.
Prediction: Bangladesh to win the match.
Total 13 Match played between BAN & IRE, in which BAN won 9 match and IRE won 2 only & the no result is 2.
Rony Talukdar, Litton Das (wk), Najmul Hossain Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan (c), Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Shamim Hossain, Hasan Mahmud, Mustafizur Rahman, Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed
Paul Stirling (c), Ross Adair, Harry Tector, Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, Lorcan Tucker (wk), George Dockrell, Matthew Humphreys, Mark Adair, Craig Young, Ben White
There will be around a 40 to 50 chance of rain throughout the duration of the game, which could lead to delays and interruptions. Temperatures will be around the 31-degree Celsius mark.
The pitch in Chattogram has been an excellent one for batting. Spinners will have their role to play, but batters can afford to play their shots on the up.
Andy Balbirnie has been rested from this series, and Paul Stirling will be captaining the Ireland team in this game
