Recent Match Report – Bangladesh vs Ireland 2nd ODI 2022/23

Toss Ireland chose to bowl vs bangladesh

Andrew Balbirnie won the toss to bowl first against Bangladesh in the second of three ODIs at Sylhet on Monday. He explained that he wanted to give his bowlers a chance to give it a try in overcast conditions – there has been some rain in Sylhet in the last 24 hours.

Bangladesh captain Tamim Iqbal said he would have liked to bowl too. With Bangladesh having to bat first, Tamim hoped they can replicate what they did in the first ODI where they achieved their biggest ODI total to date (338 for 8) and then went on to get their biggest win in terms of runs (183) .
Shakib Al Hasan and Towhid Hridoy scored the most on their debut, with 93 and 92 respectively, while Mushfiqur Rahim led the way at the end with a 26-ball 44.
Before today’s match, Ireland gave an ODI debut to Matthew Humphreys in place of Gareth Delany, who got 50 runs in six wicketless overs in the first match. Bangladesh has given Mustafizur Rahman a rest, with Hasan Mahmud coming on as a substitute. There was still no Mehidy Hasan Miraz for Bangladesh and it is clear that he has not fully recovered after injuring his eyes in a football match ahead of the first ODI.
