Bangladesh’s first series triumph

Bangladesh’s pacers and openers delivered an outstanding performance against Ireland, giving the home team a record triumph at Sylhet.

As Ireland asked them to take the field, Bangladesh’s pacers went on a rampage. Hasan Mahmud and Taskin Ahmed were at their best as Ireland fell to 26/4 in the first ten overs.

Lorcan Tucker (28) and Curtis Campher (36) provided some order with a 42-run stand. Nevertheless, as soon as Tucker left after missing an Ebadot Hussain yorker, Ireland’s batting collapsed once more.

The tourists were bowled out for 101 runs by Bangladesh’s quick bowlers, who took all ten Irish wickets. This was the first occasion in ODI history where Bangladesh quicks took all ten wickets.

Mahmud led the way with 5/32, while Taskin and Ebadot chipped in with 3/26 and 2/29, respectively.

Bangladesh openers Tamim Iqbal (41) and Litton Das (50) barely broke a sweat in pursuit of the mark. They completed the chase in 13.1 overs.

This is the first occasion Bangladesh has won an international game by ten wickets.

Bangladesh won the first ODI by 183 runs, their highest ODI victory by runs. The second game was called off after Bangladesh reached 349/6 in their allocated overs, their greatest total in one-day internationals.

The Tigers have won the ODI portion of this tour 2-0 as a consequence of this result.
