After a poor outing in the warm-up match, Bangladesh showed grit and determination to beat Windies by eight wickets at the Grange Cricket Club Ground in Dublin. Their bowlers bowled brilliantly in the death to restrict the Caribbean batsmen to 261. Openers Soumya Sarkar and Tamim Iqbal along with Shakib Al Hasan then scored half-centuries and took the sting out of Jason Holder & Co.

Mashrafe Mortaza’s men are next scheduled to play against William Porterfield’s Ireland at The Village in Dublin. The hosts, on the contrary, slumped to a shambolic 196-run defeat versus the Windies. Their bowling was awful, to say the least as the likes of John Campbell and Shai Hope unfolded utter mayhem in the Irish camp. Ireland’s task won’t be easy against an in-form Bangladesh team.
