He adds that the credit should be given to the bowlers as they have had a really hard tour but to perform with this confidence and to execute their plans in this game is commendable. He also adds that the team is improving and they are sometimes slow off the blocks but the team is getting better as the games come thick and fast for them.

Time for the presentations...
Ireland came out to bat with intent as they looked to overcome the target in a hurry but they lost Lorcan Tucker and Ross Adair early. Paul Stirling continued to attack and scored a wonderful 77 in just 41 balls to make this run chase a walk in the park. He put together a 68-run partnership for the third wicket with Harry Tector to get his team close to the target before he was dismissed. Curtis Campher added the finishing touches but most of the credit has to go to the bowlers. Six bowlers were used and they all picked up at least a wicket with Mark Adair the pick of the bowlers claiming three and conceding 25 runs. Shamim Hossain put up a fight and got to his half-century but his effort was in vain.
This is a historic win for Ireland as they pick up their first win against Bangladesh away from home! In fact, this is the first time that they have beaten an Asian team in the subcontinent in their history and they have done it in a comprehensive fashion! They may have lost the series but this win will definitely give the Irish ample confidence going into the on-off Test match. Bangladesh seemed to be a bit too confident coming into this game and did not put enough on the board for the bowlers to defend. Taskin Ahmed, Shoriful Islam, and Rishad Hossain claimed one wicket each but could not restrict the scoring as they lost with 6 overs to spare.
