Date: Monday, 20th March

Time: 01:30 PM

Pitch & Weather Report 

Bangladesh and Ireland teams will be looking to win the toss, bat first and post a score of over 300 runs. The series opener played at Sylhet was won by side batting first.

The bowlers have had success at this ground in the past. The best current example of this is the recently held Bangladesh T20 League. So it is an excellent place for them to bowl. With the new ball, fast bowlers do well; spinners love bowling and have succeeded. Batters must stay close to the wicket, and alternate strokes to follow at this location.

On March 20, Sylhet will have bright skies, with temperatures of 24℃ and 19℃ with a wind speed of 5 km/h in the northeast direction. It is anticipated a level playing field where batters may score runs. Rain is expected for the whole day with a 90% chance.
