The focus will shift to international cricket for some time as Ireland is playing the third and the last ODI against Bangladesh on Sunday at County Cricket Ground, Chelmsford. There will be a few players from both sides who will be coming to play international cricket after being part of the Indian Premier League for some time. We are in for an absolute thriller between the two teams.
Irelan has already lost the chance to qualify for the ODI World Cup because of the abandonment of the first ODI. As of now, they will be playing to show the best of the ability of Irish cricket. The top bookmakers have odds for this series on the platform.
Bangladesh has always struggled on the foreign pitches. However, playing at County Cricket Ground will be an opportunity for the visitors to learn and prepare themselves for the upcoming ODI World Cup.
Ireland will be disappointed as their luck worked against the team. The Irish team won’t be seen in the upcoming 2023 ODI World Cup. Whenever it comes out to the ICC tournaments, Ireland has come out as a team that can give a huge shock to the cricketing fans. However, they have to accept the reality and will have to now focus on the last ODI against Bangladesh.
Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, and Josh Little are the key players for Ireland.
Predicted Lineup: Paul Stirling, Harry Tector, Josh Little, Andy Balbirnie, Andy McBrine, Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, Lorcan Tucker, George Dockrell, Graham Hume, Craig Young.
In recent times, Bangladesh cricket has struggled with a complicated situation. They have been a successful team in their own country but when it comes to the international pitches, Bangladesh has struggled to score wins. Before the pressure of the ODI World Cup starts building, Bangladesh will have to start building themselves and prepare to play at their best on foreign pitches and face a strong team with equal competency.
Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, and Najmul Hossain Shanto are the key players for Bangladesh.
Predicted Lineup: Mushfiqur Rahim, Shakib Al Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto, Tamim Iqbal, Litton Das, Towhid Hridoy, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Taijul Islam, Shoriful Islam, Hasan Mahmud, Ebadot Hossain
Both teams are evenly matched and they both have struggled with their inconsistent performance. However, Bangladesh have the upper hand because of their players are in much better form and we predict a win for Bangladesh in the 3rd ODI.
