In the second game of the T20 international series, the hosts Bangladesh will be looking to take an unassailable 2-0 lead to clinch the series. In the first game of the series, the hosts Bangladesh played to their strength to get a 22-run victory in the match. The game was affected by rain and the Bangla tigers won with the DLS system coming into the picture. The Bangladesh batters are in top form and their bowlers did a fine restricting job in the game. Ireland has failed to register a victory on this tour but they will try a win their first game in this encounter.

Bangladesh has been enjoying success at home since the England tour. They have now won 5 out of their last 6 matches played in their home conditions. Bangladesh will look to keep its momentum going in this match. The Irish side struggled to come to grips with the track and conditions and this has always been the case for them in the past as well. It is going to take a monumental effort from Ireland to come out of this losing streak and challenge the hosts to level the series in this game.

BAN vs IRE Team Previews


The Bangladesh team is being led by Shakib Al Hasan in this encounter. They did a good job in all the departments of the game in their last effort. Their openers provided a good start, the middle order was among runs and their bowlers bowled a tight line not allowing the Irish batters to settle in. The Bangla skipper will be keen to take the winning momentum forward in this match and seal a series win right here. He is experienced enough to warn his side against complacency and play positively in the match.

Rony Talukdar played brilliantly in the last match. He will be looking to provide a good start again in this game together with the other prolific opener Litton Das for Bangladesh. The middle order for the tigers is in the hands of Najmul Hossain Shanto, Towhid Hridoy, and Shamim Hossain. This team will be looking for some quick runs near the death overs from the likes of Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Shakib Al Hasan. Bangladesh will be expecting some top spells from their new ball bowlers Mustafizur Rahman and Nasum Ahmed.

Ireland's team has some good hard-hitting batters near the top of the order. However, the Bangla spinners will enjoy the conditions here and Mehidy Hasan Miraz and Shakib Al Hasan will make life difficult for the Irish batters in the middle overs. They will be looking forward to containing the Bangladesh batters in this period. The supporting role in the bowling department lies with Hasan Mahmud and Taskin Ahmed. Some good all-rounders are playing in the team such as the skipper Shakib himself, Shamim Hossain, and Mehidy Hasan Miraz.

The Ireland skipper Paul Stirling will be looking to re-group his side after the poor show in the first match of the series. The Ireland bowlers failed to provide the team with early breakthroughs. This allowed the Bangladesh batters to settle in nicely and walk away from the striking distance for Ireland. As a result of a string of failures in the series, the Ireland team will be down on confidence and must perform a lot better to have any hopes of registering a win in this encounter and leveling the series.

The skipper Paul Stirling will need to lead the team from the front and give them an electrifying start by using the services of Ross Adair. The Irish team management will be looking for a decent contribution from batters such as Harry Tector, Lorcan Tucker, and George Dockrell in the middle order. Some other batters playing lower down the order will have to hit out and score some quick runs down the order. This responsibility lies with players such as Curtis Campher and Gareth Delany near the death overs.

The Irish bowling attack failed to stick to their plan in the last match. They will need to extract good spells from the likes of Mark Adair and Harry Tector, especially with the new ball. If they can get some early wickets, it will be possible for the middle-over bowlers to get some purchase from the track and put pressure on the Bangladesh middle-order batsmen. The bowlers that will bowl in the middle order are Delany and Graham Hume. They will look to keep the scoring rate in check and also pick some wickets. Other bowling alternatives for Ireland are Craig Young and Benjamin White.

Pitch and Conditions

The Zahur Ahmed Chowdhary Stadium ground in Chittagong, Bangladesh will play the host for this game. This has been a good hunting ground for the bowling attacks. This is not a usual slam-bang wicket as there is a lot of opportunity for the quick bowlers to utilize the conditions to their advantage. Those batters that are keen to play long innings and select their shots wisely tend to do well on this track.

We will likely get hazy air during the afternoon in Chattogram. The surface on offer will be a flat one as we have seen in the last few matches. Most batters will have the opportunity to play their shots and score big runs on this surface. Any team batting first in the match will look to score 180 runs in their first innings to feel confident about their chances.

BAN vs IRE Betting Tips
