Tigers face off Ireland in dead rubber

Bangladesh will take on hosts Ireland in the last group match of the tri-series tournament, which turned out to be a dead-rubber after both Bangladesh and West Indies confirmed the spot in final.

The match starts at 3.45 pm (BST) at the Clontarf Cricket Club ground on Wednesday, reports BSS.

The Tigers, however, aim to continue the winning-spree and boost their confidence further ahead of the final against West Indies on Friday.

Bangladesh won both of their matches against West Indies in emphatic fashion while their first match against Ireland was washed out without a ball being bowled due to heavy rain. Thereby they top the table so far with 10 points from three matches and a win against Ireland would further widen their gap to West Indies who have nine points from four games.

West Indies won both of their matches against Ireland in comprehensive manner to seal the spot in final but they proved them to be no match for Bangladesh.
