Ireland Tri-Nation Series, 4th Match: Ireland v Bangladesh at Dublin (Malahide), May 19, 2017
Bangladesh won by 8 wickets (with 137 balls remaining)
Played at Malahide, Dublin
19 May 2017 (50-over match)

10:32am: Crowd is slowly making their way into the ground, its a lovely day here in Malahide. Perfect day for cricket, we get underway at 10:45am sharp.

10:16am: Bangladesh have won the toss and have asked Ireland to bat. One change for both the teams.

Ireland XI: William Porterfield (capt), Paul Stirling, Ed Joyce, Niall O'Brien (wk), Andy Balbirnie, Kevin O'Brien, Gary Wilson, George Dockrell, Barry McCarthy, Tim Murtagh, Peter Chase

Just one change for the Ireland Team, Ed Joyce returns after his back issues. Simi Singh the man to make way.

Bangladesh XI: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Sabbir Rahman, Mushfiqur Rahim (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Sunzamul Islam, Mashrafe Mortaza (capt), Rubel Hossain, Mustafizur Rahman

Sunzamul Islam comes in for his ODI debut today, replacing Mehedi Hasan

10:00am: Last Friday we only managed to get in 31.1 overs before the rain decided that it had seen enough for the day. I'm confident (fingers crossed) that we are going to get to get more then that today. There is barely a cloud in the sky at the moment, we are expecting some of the wet stuff, late afternoon. Would be great to get through a second game without any rain….

9:55am: The bowling attack will have hoped to have put New Zealand under more pressure than they did.  With seven different bowlers used in the first 15 overs, it looked as if Mashrafe Mortaza wanted to have a look at all his bowling options. Rubel Hossain and Mustafizur Rahman looked the most dangerous of the bowlers, although I'm sure that the 22 wicketless overs of spin will be a worry.

Ireland come into the game still searching for that elusive win over a full member this year. With 4 day's rest behind them it will be interesting to see if it's given Ed Joyce's back enough time to recover. If not, then depending on the conditions it will be Simi Singh will stay in the team or Craig Young might be set loose on the Bangladesh batsmen.

One player who will definitely raring to get back in the middle will be Niall O'Brien, fresh from becoming the 11th oldest player to score a first ODI hundred. To top that list, he would have had to have wait another 7 years to hit the milestone, Khurram Khan was almost 43 and a half when he scored his first century for the UAE back in 2014. That's a #khurramkhanfact for you.

9:53am: Good morning, games are coming thick and fast in the Ireland Tri-series. 3 gone and 3 to go. At the half way point, so back to the beginning we go. It's Justin here and today we return to Malahide for a repeat of the first game between Ireland and Bangladesh.

It's only been two days since New Zealand took control of the tri-series with a four wicket win over Bangladesh at Clontarf. With both Ireland and Bangladesh sitting on 2 points each, both teams will need the win today if they have any chance of catching the leaders. 

Bangladesh will be disappointed with the total that they posted on Wednesday against New Zealand. 257 was never going to be enough on a small ground like Clontarf and so it proved. Fifties from Soumya Sarkar, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah were all scored at less than a run a ball. I'm sure today that they will look to be more positive and look for one of the top order to score a big one.

With that wicket the innings comes to an end. Bangladesh won the toss and got off to a perfect start getting Stirling for a duck. Evertime that it looked like a partnership was forming, another wicket would go down.

Too many of the Ireland batsmen gave their wicket's away, although they will be grateful to Dockrell and McCarthy's partnership to drag them towards respectability.

With Ireland failing again to bat out the full innings, we are actually going to get a full 45 minute lunch break today. So please join me at 2:40pm when Bangladesh will look to chase this down.

Match State: Innings Break

We are back, hope that you all had a great Lunch. Umpires are heading out onto the middle.
