Match Preview

It will be IRE vs BAN at Chelmsford tomorrow as both teams will lock horns for the 2nd ODI.

Unfortunately, in the 1st ODI, rain played spoilsport after Bangladesh put up a score of 246/9 in their 50 overs.

Meanwhile, Ireland had managed to score 65 runs at a loss of three wickets when it started to rain.

With no signs of rain waning, the match was called off and the game ended in a no result.

Therefore, tomorrow’s game is a huge one for both these sides as it will determine who will draw the first blood.

Bangladesh look in good form as can be seen from their performance in the first ODI and will look to get a good start tomorrow.

Ireland, meanwhile, will also put up an equally adept performance against the visitors and gain the upper hand.

Thus, we will get an excellent game between these two sides tomorrow at County Cricket Ground.
