Abu Jayed, Liton Das, Tamim Iqbal keep Ireland winless in tri-series

Cricket


Bangladesh 294 for 4 (Liton 76, Tamim 57) beat Ireland 292 for 8 (Stirling 130, Porterfield 94, Jayed 5-58) by six wickets

Seamer Abu Jayed‘s first five-wicket haul in only his second ODI coupled with fifties from Tamim Iqbal, Liton Das and Shakib Al Hasan led Bangladesh to a six-wicket win and kept Ireland winless in the tri-series. However, Bangladesh will be sweating over Shakib’s fitness after the allrounder had retired hurt during the chase with a suspected side strain.

Earlier, Ireland opener Paul Stirling put on a show, making 130 off 141 balls, and was well supported by his captain William Porterfield, who hit his first ODI fifty in more than a year, but their efforts went in vain as Bangladesh aced their chase.
