Ireland slip to Bangladesh defeat

first_imgShakib Al Hasan put in a match-winning performance as Bangladesh saw off Ireland in a World Twenty20 warm-up clash in Fatullah. The all-rounder clubbed 58 from 32 balls as part of Bangladesh’s first-up 179 for three, and then took two for 13 as the Irish were seen off by 44 runs. Bangladesh had been in some trouble at 63 for three when Shakib and captain Mushfiqur Rahim joined each other at the crease, but a partnership of 116 (Rahim 59 from 30) saw them post a healthy total. Ireland opener Ed Joyce scored a run-a-ball 44 and Stuart Thompson contributed 35 lower down the order but Bangladesh were comfortable winners. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
