BAN vs IRE, 1st T20I



Bangladesh and Ireland will lock horns for the 1st match of the T20I series which will be played in the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. The match is scheduled for Monday, March 27 at 01:30 PM. 

Shakib Al Hasan led Bangladesh recently defeated the World Champions’ England 3-0 in the three-match T20I series. This was the only second time they whitewashed a team in T20Is after their triumph over Ireland back in 2012.

The Bangla Tigers squad will more or less be the which played against England. Rishad Hossian, the leg spinner had been added to the side. Shakib Al Hasan, Mustafizur Rahman and Hasan Miraz will be the key characters in this game. 

Also, Litton Das has also been in sublime touch in recent times along with Towhid Hridoy who has been showing great signs of development in recent times. Also, Rony Talukdar would try to convert his small contributions into a big score.

Ireland will be led by Paul Stirling who has been the backbone of the team for more than a decade. George Dockrell also needs to bring forward his experience to get better output. Curtis Campher, Harry Tector and Lorcan Tucker added a lot of depth to the team.
