    I rate Ireland at full strength on paper as a better team than Bangladesh. I'm not sure I have enough faith in the batting without Morgan to predict a series victory with any confidence though.

    EDIT: No Langford-Smith either. Bangladesh should definitely be favourites.

    Morgan is playing. But yeah with Langford-Smith their bowling attack looks quite weak. A lot of pressure on Rankin to step up with the bowl.

    Will be a pretty even series for mine, 2-1 either way.

    A pretty big series in the context of World Cricket though with Rankin and O'Brien being the first ICL players to play Internationals.

    That's not very accurate, Rankin Isn't been played as he still hasn't recovered fully from the Injury he got that kept him out of the ICL last year. Langford-smith came in to replace him but has a niggling injury like Johnston and Botha, that kept all three out of the warm-up matches against Abu Dhabi and Essex. But they might be able to play, if they don't we are in trouble.

    Morgan to pwn the Bangladesh bowling attack. Any dibs on highest wicket taker? I am tipping Mortaza to find some form.

    Fan of Morgan, definitely the most talented batsman on show but from what I have seen of him he may struggle on Bangladeshi wickets. He had an extremely poor World Cup where he failed to come to terms with the slow and low wickets and I don’t suspect much has changed since.

    Abdur Razzak to clean up.

    Dhiman Ghosh the new man on the 'deshi wicketkeeping roundabout? Or is Rahim injured?

    Rahim actually got dropped from the ODIs against South Africa. Ghosh has already played three ODIs and is the incumbent.

    Too many MMSIs to keep up with

    Class effort against SA, I see.

    Btw, the four Irishmen with only initials in James' post are

    Alex Cusack
    Gary Kidd
    (mar)Thinus Fourie
    Greg Thompson

    Interesting that the ICC have strangely silent on their presence so far. Looks not unlike a double standard to my eyes.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    No one really gives a hoot when its associate players. If it were readily recognisable marketing objects like a star batsman or bowler from a test nation then the ICC would care...

    Cant see the Irish winning this. One thing they lack is depth.

    Will be a tough ask with injuries against a more experienced team away from home.
