Bowlers get Bangladeshi captain seal of approval
Friday, May 19, 2017
DUBLIN: Mashrafe Mortaza was a satisfied captain after Bangladesh swept aside Ireland to win their first match in the one-day international Tri-Series.

A much-improved bowling performance, after Mortaza won the toss, put the Tigers in control and they knocked off the 182 runs required for victory inside 28 overs, for the loss of just two wickets, with Soumya Sarkar finishing 87 not out from 68 balls with 11 fours and two sixes.

Mustafizur Rahman took the wicket of the dangerous Paul Stirling with his third ball, and although Rubel Hossain did not take a wicket his pace and movement consistently troubled the Ireland batsmen.

The introduction of Mosaddek Hossain accounted for Ireland captain William Porterfield and when Shakib also struck in his second over, Ireland were 61 for three in the 15th over.

Ed Joyce, playing his first match of the series, and Niall OŽBrien, who scored a century against New Zealand in their previous match, led a recovery of sorts.

However, Mustafizur returned to have OŽBrien caught at third man, inches inside the boundary, and when Joyce followed in the next over, the first international wicket for debutant slow left armer Sunzamul Islam, Ireland were back in trouble at 126 for five.

Mustafizur added the wickets of Kevin OŽBrien and Gary Wilson to finish an impressive nine overs with four for 23.
"Early wickets always put pressure on a team but Tamim Iqbal and Soumya batted really well and scored at seven an over for the first 10 overs which was important for us," added Mortaza.

The partnership was ended at 95 but another stand of 76 between Soumya and Sabbir Rahman (34 off 35 balls), also at seven runs an over, eased Bangladesh towards the finishing line and gives Mortaza hope that they can be more competitive in the final game against New Zealand on Wednesday.

"WeŽre looking looking forward to it, we had a chance in the last match but didnŽt go through with it, but if we play as well as we did today there is a chance to win the game," he added.

The next match in the series is on Sunday with IrelandŽs final game against New Zealand and Joyce is looking for a big finish from the hosts.
