Bangladesh squared the ODI series with Ireland 1-1 after a comprehensive six-wicket (D/L method) win on Friday in Belfast.
Four wickets from Shafiul Islam helped restrict Ireland to 189-9 off 46 overs, in a rain affected match, with Gary Wilson’s 60 off 64 balls the only real batting highlight for the home team.
Although Bangladesh was reduced to 41-2, opener Tamim Iqbal was in fine form as his 74 took his side to victory.
Bangladesh now faces matches against Scotland and the Netherlands in coming days.
