Ireland is going to host Bangladesh for a three-match ODI series starting tomorrow at Chelmsford.
The hosts did not have the best of games against Sri Lanka as they lost the Test series by 2-0.
Additionally, they played a three-match series against Bangladesh when they went there as visitors.
However, they lost this series 2-0 with one of the games affected by rain. Thus, they will now be on the hunt for revenge against the Bangla Tigers.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh enjoyed their ODI series win over Ireland and will look to put up a repeat of their performance as they did in March.
Both these teams have some capable players in their lineups who can demolish the opposition.
Thus, we will get a good contest between these sides tomorrow afternoon at County Cricket Ground.
