Irelandâs Struggles Continue For Ireland, things didn't go according to plan as their batsmen failed to convert their starts into big scores. They lost wickets at regular intervals and failed to form any meaningful partnerships. Paul Stirling, the opener, was the top scorer for Ireland with 38 runs. Captain Andy Balbirnie scored 21 runs, while Harry Tector and George Dockrell scored 31 and 25 runs respectively.
Bangladesh's Steady Chase In response, Bangladesh started their chase cautiously, losing opener Liton Das early in the innings. However, Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal steadied the ship with a 62-run partnership for the second wicket. Tamim Iqbal top-scored for Bangladesh with 47 runs, while Shakib Al Hasan scored 43 runs. Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim also contributed with the bat, scoring 26 and 35 runs respectively. In the end, Bangladesh chased down the target with more than 10 overs to spare.
The Win and Its Significance With this win, Bangladesh has now won eight out of their last ten ODIs, which is a good sign ahead of the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup. The team management will be happy with the way their players have performed in this series, especially with the bat. They will look to carry this momentum into the upcoming T20I series against Australia.
