Commentry

!

That's all from this match. We look forward to your company on Sunday for the game between Ireland and New Zealand at Malahide, Dublin. Let's hope there will be no rain. Do join us at 1045 local (0945 GMT) for all the action. Cheers!

The first outing for Bangladesh in these conditions wasn't a great one. Their batting struggled and it needed the partnership between Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah to bail them out. Ireland will be immensely pleased with their efforts in the field and Peter Chase's bowling was a big positive for them. Although, they would like to cut down on the extras as they bowled too many wides.

CALLED OFF! Unfortunate end to this encounter. The umpires did wait for the conditions to improve but the persistent drizzle meant, no more play.

Update 1556 local - The rain has reduced to a drizzle but still it's a persistent one. The covers remain where they were. The groundsmen will need the drizzle to stop completely to start their mopping work. The umpires came out a few minutes back but didn't look too impressed with the conditions. The cut-off time we are hearing for a 20-over game is 1810 local. We are fast approaching that time. Let's keep our fingers crossed. Stay tuned...

Update 1425 local - No respite from the rain. It continues to come down hard and the covers are firmly on. We have started to lose overs from hereon. Let's hope for the best. Stay tuned for latest updates...

Oh dear, it has started to rain and the covers are coming on. The players are rushing off the field. Let's hope it stops soon. Stay tuned, we will keep you posted.
