Live: Ireland opt to bat first against Bangladesh
The hosts Ireland have won the toss and elected to bat first against Bangladesh in the sixth match of the tri-nation series.
With Windies and Bangladesh already qualifying for the final, the clash against Ireland might be a dead rubber, but that isn’t going to stop it from being useful and will be ideal for practice ahead of the World Cup.
Meanwhile, the hosts Ireland, who lacks experience will be looking to prove their worth as it’s their last chance to do so in this tournament. It is also an opportunity for them to fine tune their skills before familiar foes Afghanistan visit them for a couple of ODIs.
Bangladesh has made a few changes in the side as they look to give the other players who are in the World Cup squad to give a shot. Mohammad Saifuddin, who was left out in the last match due to injury is back into the side while Rubel Hossain to play in place of Mustafizur Rahman.
Ireland: 1 Paul Stirling, 2 James McCollum, 3, Andy Balbirnie, 4 William Porterfield (capt), 5 Kevin O’Brien, 6 Mark Adair, 7 Gary Wilson (wk), 8 George Dockrell, 9 Boyd Rankin, 10 Barry McCarthy, 11 Josh Little
