Bangladesh has arguably been the most dominant team in the ongoing triangular ODI series. The Mashrafe Mortaza-led unit is the only unbeaten team and hasn’t had to strain in any of their three victories thus far. Their batting, especially the top order has looked ominous and the bowling unit has also stepped up with the likes of Mustafizur Rahman, Abu Jayed and the skipper amongst the wickets.
The Final will be a different ball game altogether and the Tigers will play it against the Windies on Friday at The Village in Dublin. In the league stage, Bangladesh got the better of the Caribbean team on two instances and is again deemed to be the favourites in the all-important encounter. The Windies don’t seem to be in great shape with some of their big names not taking part in the tournament.
The Final of the Ireland Tri-Nation series between Ireland and Bangladesh will be hosted by The Village in Dublin.
The match starts at 10:45 local time, 15:15 IST, 09:45 GMT.
