Things haven't started on a breezy note for the hosts Ireland in their ongoing tri-series against Bangladesh and West Indies. They were thrashed by West Indies in their first encounter and will be looking to bounce back into the series with a much-needed win over Bangladesh. A win for Ireland will bring all the three teams in the series on par with each other. The two teams are set to lock horns on 9th May and given the way Bangladesh registered their win over Windies, it's not going to be easy for the home side.
One doesn't need to know rocket science to figure out the kind of bowling Ireland did in the first match of the series. They were erratic with the ball, lacked discipline and their ordinary fielding didn't really help their cause. Considering the way Bangladesh smashed Windies around the park, Ireland will need to massively improve their bowling so as to put the Bangladeshi batsmen in any sort of trouble whatsoever.
Paul Stirling was dismissed for a duck in the first match and will be looking to spend a little more time at the crease. Balbirnie and Kevin O' Brien looked relatively comfortable in their short stay and a lot will once again depend on the duo considering their ability to tackle spinners in the middle overs.
All in all, Ireland look in all sort of troubles after a one-sided defeat in their first match and will need to make amends quickly. They have to improve in all departments of the game and certainly won't be easy. Having said that, the change in venue could very well work in their favor which is something they'll be banking upon.

Saying that Bangladesh were clinical in the first encounter of the series will be an understatement. Barring a couple of players, all of them had a perfect outing against West Indies. However, it will be interesting to see how their middle-order fares in case they need to come out in the middle early.
Coming into the tournament, the Tigers had plenty of issues to address which all seem to have vanished considering their last match's performance. Soumya Sarkar put an end to their opening problems with a brilliant knock in the first match. While there was ample contribution from their other batsmen, it was majorly a Soumya Sarkar.
On the bowling front, Bangladesh didn't really have a kind of start they were looking for and were staring at a score of around 300 with Mustafizur Rahman carted around the ground. However, they dragged it back beautifully towards the end which proved to be a decisive factor in the game.

despite having the home advantage. However, they are certainly likely to produce a better performance as they did against the West Indies. Also, they'll draw inspiration from their performance against England a few days ago. Bangladesh, on the other hand, are brimming with confidence and look better placed than Ireland on all accounts. They are our pick to win the upcoming encounter on Thursday.
