Shakib Al Hasan is the Player of the Match for his all-round performance. He feels good to put on a good show. Adds they want to play fearless cricket and they discuss it every time. Reckons when he was batting, he saw there is something for the spinners. Shares they will try to win the next match while trying to rotate some players.
Paul Stirling says it was a tricky day and there is a lot to work on. Adds they want to play every game to win and the players are trying their best. Reckons they will think about this game before playing the final match. Shares Bangladesh are a strong team and he feels there was no one-sided match till now.
Only three players were able to get a double-digit score for the visitors. Ireland succumbed to pressure starting from their skipper falling on the first ball. It was downhill from there. Curtis Campher though showed some positive signs by scoring a fifty. Shakib Al Hasan was the star with the ball, claiming a five-fer while Taskin Ahmed ended with three. Shakib Al Hasan though was just too good with the ball.
A comprehensive win for Bangladesh and after ODI series, they win the T20I series. They were just superb throughout. First, due to rain, the match was slashed to 17 overs per side. It was pouring from the sky before Bangladesh showed up to bat. Boy, they went bonkers from the word go, scoring 200 with everyone making an instant impact. Litton Das and Towhid Hridoy blasted 100 runs in no time and later Shakib Al Hasan gave a fine finish.
