Both Bangladesh and Ireland are yet to register a single win in the series so far although both of them played two matches each. The first match between the host and Bangladesh at Malahide was ruined by rain and both of them were defeated by New Zealand in their second encounter.
Both of them are keen to bag a win in the oncoming match to end behind New Zealand who is now spotting the top spot.
On the other hand, Ireland have a chance to bring Simi Singh to strengthen batting line up. The 30 year old made his debut against New Zealand in their last encounter.
The weather forecast in Dublin has pointed to a 51 percent chance of thunderstorm on Friday.
