Bangladesh is preparing to take on Ireland in one of the most crucial one-day international series that will begin in England. Getting a direct spot in the one-day international world cup later this year requires a clean sweep in the series. If Ireland wins the series, they will qualify for the tournament. On the other hand, Bangladesh has already qualified for the tournament. Chelmsford’s County Ground will host the series’ opening match on May 9th 2023.

Ireland vs Bangladesh 1st ODI Match Preview
There is a strong chance that Ireland will win the series and qualify for the World Cup approaching later this year. They have selected their best available team for the series. This decision by the management to play the entire side was no surprise to anyone. In the recently concluded test match against the Sri Lankans, many of these players displayed top form and were led by Andy Balbirnie. The Irish team is expected to consist of Lorcan Tucker, Paul String, and Harry Tector. Tector has recorded a solid average of 65.14 over his last 10 Ireland appearances. He has scored 456 runs in those 10 appearances.
With an average of 32, Paul Stirling has scored 256 runs in his last ten appearances for Ireland. These are the key batters to watch out for for Ireland under these conditions. A talented bowler, Josh Little, will lead the Ireland bowling attack in these conditions. In the recent edition of the IPL, he established himself against the Gujrat Titans. He was able to pick up six wickets on a flat batting track in IPL at an economy rate of 8.20. Ireland’s success in the series relies on the seamer.
As led by Tamim Iqbal, the Bangladesh team is formidable and includes Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Litton Das, as well as several good players. These players in the squad make them a formidable force, even if they’re playing in foreign terrain. In March this year, Bangladesh played three one-day international games against Ireland, ending 2-0 for the Bangladesh Tigers. With another dominating performance in the series, Bangladesh will look to repeat this success.
When Bangladesh tries to secure automatic qualification to the World Cup, its players will try hard to derail the Ireland team’s aspirations. In English conditions, the Bangladesh team will rely on players like Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, and Shakib Al Hasan, who have extensive experience. As a result of his 93 in the first one-day series against Ireland earlier in March, Shakib Al Hasan tallied more than 600 runs in English conditions in the 2019 world cup. As a result, he has an in-depth understanding of the conditions, which could prove to be a major obstacle for the Irish.
