IRE vs BAN Team Previews


Ireland will be desperate to win the series and secure a place in the World Cup coming up later. They have selected their best available team for the series. This decision by the management to play the entire side was not a surprise for anyone. The Irish team will be led by Andy Balbirnie and will have all the big names in it such as Lorcan Tucker, Paul String, and Harry Tector. Many of these players displayed their top form in the recently concluded test match against the Sri Lankans. Tector has scored 456 runs in his last 10 appearances for Ireland with a solid average of 65.14.

Paul Stirling has scored 256 runs from his last 10 appearances for Ireland with an average of 32. These are the main batsmen to watch out for in these conditions for Ireland. The Ireland bowling attack will be led by the talented bowler Josh Little. He has succeeded in establishing his reputation while playing against Gujrat Titans in the recent edition of IPL. The fast bowler succeeded in picking up 6 wickets on the flat batting tracks in IPL with an economy rate of 8.20. The seamer is the key to the success of Ireland in the series.

Some of the other bowlers that will boost the Irish bowling attack are Craig Young, Mark Adair, and Curtis Campher. None of the Ireland seamers managed to create an impression on the opposition in the recently concluded visit to the Indian subcontinent against Bangladesh. But they are likely to achieve more purchase from this track and are likely to be difficult to handle for the Bangladesh team. Although Mark Adair is a bowling all-rounder there are some other all-rounders on the team such as Gareth Delany, George Dockrell, Fionn Hand, and Paul Stirling.

The Bangladesh outfit is a formidable one and it is led by Tamim Iqbal. There are several good players in it such as Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Litton Das. The presence of these players in the squad makes them a formidable team even when they are playing in foreign conditions. Bangladesh was involved in a 3-game one-day international series against Ireland in March this year. This series ended in a 2-0 win for the Bangladesh Tigers. The Bangladesh team will be looking to replicate this outcome with another dominating performance in the series.

Bangladesh players will try hard to derail the aspirations of the Ireland team while trying to secure automatic qualification in the World Cup. The vast experience of players such as Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Shakib Al Hasan will be vital for the Bangladesh team in the English conditions. Shakib Al Hasan scored a superb 93 in the first game of the one-day series against Ireland earlier in March. In the 2019 world cup played in England, he amassed more than 600 runs in English conditions. So, he is well aware of the conditions and it might turn out to be the major hurdle for the Irishmen.

Litton Das has played well in the one-day internationals against Ireland in the recent past. In the ODI series against the same opposition, he scored runs with an average of 74. This stylish batsman is in terrific form of late and his team will be expecting him to leave a big impact on the one-day series. Bangladesh also has a good bowling attack to back their batters. However, they will miss the services of the seamer Taskin Ahmed due to injury. But other bowlers such as Mustafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, and Ebadot Hossain will enjoy these conditions.

IRE vs BAN Toss Prediction

We are likely to get cloudy weather during the first ODI game. To try and exploit these conditions the skipper that wins the toss may opt to field first to utilize the lateral movement due to the playing conditions. Picking up early wickets will result in developing pressure on the opposition.

Pitch and Conditions

If you look at the record of teams playing at this venue, you will find that just 3 ODI games have been played at the County Ground. The average total scored by the teams batting first on this venue is 199 runs. And the highest score posted by any team on the ground is 247 runs by India. However, any team batting first on batting-friendly conditions will look to set a total of 270 runs on the board. The wicket on offer at the venue will be good for batting. But due to the cloudy conditions expected during the match, seamers may find some movement in the first ten overs of the game. This will be the time when batsmen are going to face difficulty. But if they can get in on this track, they can enjoy the conditions that are in favor of batters. The weather bureau is expecting some passing showers as well at some point during the game.

IRE vs BAN Betting Tips

If you look at the head-to-head record between the two sides, you will find that Bangladesh has won more matches. In the recently concluded one-day series the Bangladesh team defeated the Irishmen in all formats of the game. They will begin the series as strong favorites. But it will not be so easy for them at this point as these conditions are loaded in favor of Irish seamers. Some of the bowlers such as Curtis Campher and Josh Little will find help from the track and derail the Bangla plans of recording a win in the series. Bangladesh has improved a lot in the one-day format during recent years and is quite capable of taking out even the top teams on their day. We expect Bangladesh to win this game and take a 1-0 lead in the series.
