*official* Ireland vs Bangladesh 3 ODI Super league in England

G. S. Kohli

International Vice-Captain
12 wkts in 8 games in domestic

The Bangladesh selectors have called up Mrittunjoy Chowdhury as the injured Taskin Ahmed's replacement in the 14-member squad for the three-match ODI series against Ireland in Chelmsford next month

Bangladesh squad changes
In: Taijul Islam, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury

Out: Nasum Ahmed, Taskin Ahmed

Bangladesh will leave for Chelmsford in early May. They will play a practice match on May 5, followed by the three ODIs - part of the World Cup Super League - on May 9, 12 and 14. This series is the last one of the Super League, the top eight sides from where directly qualify for the World Cup later this year. Bangladesh, though, are guaranteed participants, by currently sitting fourth on the points table.
This, if Ireland - who are currently placed 11th - manage to sweep Bangladesh 3-0, they can climb straight up to eighth at the expense of South Africa if they have a better net run rate (NRR). Although both teams will have then ended on 98 points each, the first tie-breaker would be the number of wins; that too would be nine in case Ireland win all three ODIs against Bangladesh, and so NRR would come into play.

Bangladesh squad: Tamim Iqbal (capt), Litton Das, Rony Talukdar, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Yasir Ali, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Ebadot Hossain, Shoriful Islam, Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, Mrittunjoy Chowdhury


International 12th Man
Ireland should back themselves to chase this down.
Well behind DRS total of 90 and need 20 overs to constitute a game.

Really need no rain delays and a win in all 3 games with one having to be relatively big.

Can't see them managing that. A series win result might be a small consolation.


International 12th Man
Should have played at Durham been glorious up in Northumberland today.

Mind the Riverside has its own micro climate so was probably raining even though only 20 miles from where I live.


Cricketer Of The Year
South Africa going to the World Cup anyway. Maybe they should have moved the matches to the Gahanga Cricket Stadium :ph34r:


International Coach
Its funny that the matches were moved from
dublin to essex due weather concerns and its sunny in dublin and raining in essex now


International Coach
Weird captaincy from tamim not giving single over to miraz. Taijul taken to cleaners but he is still persisting with him. Poor captaincy.


International Regular
Got to admit quite enjoying this little series. One or two tests to wrap this up would have been great
Would have loved that. Such a shame there aren't any. I suspect we'd have lost though. Still brittle as **** in that format despite some recent white ball improvements.


International Coach
Oh look at 40 overs the game was in the bag and ireland as always bottled it. McBrine at the end :laugh:
