The 2nd T20 match of Ireland’s tour of Bangladesh 2023 is scheduled to be held on Wednesday, 29th March 2023 at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chattogram.
Ireland tour of Bangladesh 2023 2nd T20 Match Overview
Ireland disappointed its fans on this tour of Bangladesh. They had played three ODI matches and one T20 match and still are searching for a win. They faced a whitewash in the ODI series and if they did not perform well in this match, the result will be the same as the ODI series. We are expecting a couple of changes from both sides in this match. We think Ireland will add some extra power in the batting order.
Litton Das also had an outstanding performance with the bat. He scored 47 runs while he faced just 23 balls and smashed four boundaries and three huge sixes during his inning. Shamim Hossain was the other batsman who put some runs on the board. He scored 30 runs while the skipper, Shakib Al Hasan remained not out after scoring 20 runs. The bowling unit of Bangladesh also performed well and leaked 81 runs in eight overs when the match was stopped due to rain and later it was decided through the DLS method. Taskin Ahmed was the bowler who destroyed the batting order of Ireland. He picked up four wickets in just two overs while he was charged with 16 runs. Hasan Mahmud also had a wicket to his name. He picked one wicket while he was charged with 20 runs in two overs. Nasum Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, and Shakib Al Hasan were the bowlers who failed to give the best performance and remained wicketless.
Ireland has to win this match at any cost to avoid a clean sweep in this series of three T20 matches. Ireland had totally failed to give the best performance on this tour of Bangladesh. The performance of their bowling unit was very poor in the previous match where they leaked more than 200 runs in 20 overs. Craig Young was the highest wicket-taker from their side with two wickets to his name in four overs but he leaked a lot of runs. He was charged with 45 runs in four overs. Harry Tector was the other bowler who performed well and picked one wicket while he was charged with 16 runs in two overs.
Mark Adair and Graham Hume also picked one wicket each while Benjamin White and Gareth Delany were the bowlers who failed to pick any wicket. The batting order of Ireland performed well but they lost their key wicket one by one and this was the main reason why they were 22 runs behind Bangladesh when the match was stopped. Gareth Delany was the most successful and highest run-scorer from their side with 21 runs to his name on 14 balls with the help of three boundaries. Harry Tector also performed well and put some runs on the board. He scored 19 runs while he faced 12 balls and smashed three boundaries. The skipper, Paul Stirling had a good start with the bat but failed to continue and came back to the pavilion after scoring 17 runs on just 8 balls with the help of four boundaries.
