BAN vs IRE, 2nd T20I



Bangladesh and Ireland will lock horns for the 2nd T20I match at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram. The game is scheduled for the 29th of march. Bangladesh has a lead of 1-0 in the three T20I match series.

Shakib al Hasan's team met all the criteria in the previous game. The middle order performed well, the openers produced runs, and the bowlers prevented Ireland from becoming set on the crease. Shakib hopes to maintain the current trend and win this game to win the series. He'll want to keep his composure and put up a good performance.  

Rony Talukdar, who was outstanding in the last game, will want to get off to a strong start alongside Litton Das in this one. It has a solid middle order thanks to Shamim Hossain, Najmul Hossain Shanto, and Towhid Hridoy. The team might anticipate a rush of batsmanship from Shakib and Mehidy Hasan Miraz in the closing stages.  

The team may anticipate strong stints from Nasum Ahmed and Mustafizur Rahman with the new ball because Ireland possesses strong hitters at the top. On this surface, Shakib and Mehidy Hasan Miraz will enjoy bowling and try to disturb the batters. The bowling unit must perform well, including Taskin Ahmed and Hasan Mahmud, and provide crucial assistance to the skipper.

After a disappointing performance in the last game, Paul Stirling's team must rebuild. Their bowlers' inability to make early strides allowed the hosts to win the match. However, due to a string of losses, they need more confidence. Thus they must play better to win this game and tie the series.  

With Ross Adir, Paul Stirling must take the initiative and provide an exhilarating opening to the contest. Next, the side will need Lorcan Tucker, Harry Tector, and George Dockrell to play well in the middle order. Finally, in the last overs, Gareth Delany and Curtis Campher must score quickly.   

In the previous game, their bowling assault did not carry out the strategies. The team will need intense periods from Harry Tector and Mark Adair with the new ball. Delany and Graham Hume must pressure Bangladesh's middle order to control the scoring pace. Craig Young and Benjamin White provide alternatives to this assault.


Match Details

Match: BAN vs IRE, 2nd T20I, Ireland tour of Bangladesh 2023

Date: Wednesday, March 29, 2023

Time: 01:30 PM

Venue: Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram


Pitch and Weather Report

Early in the game, the pitch will help bowlers and become better as the game goes on. On this track, teams chasing the score have consistently enjoyed an edge. Therefore, the team that wins the toss should be willing to bowl first. 

Chattogram's Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium is renowned as a bowlers' paradise. It isn't a traditional slam-bang venue since quick bowlers have ample room to take advantage of the pitch conditions. Here, batters ready to play the extended innings and choose their strokes often do well.

At Chittagong, the afternoon would be hazy. The highest and lowest temperature would be around 30℃ and 24℃, respectively, with a wind speed of 16 km/h in the east direction. As in the last game, the pitch will be flat, making it simple for batters to execute their strokes and score runs. However, to feel secure, 180+ runs must be scored for the team batting first in this game.
