The Bangladesh Tigers are already booked to face West Indies in the championship final of their pre-Cricket World Cup tri-series in Ireland on Friday. But first, they must play one last match in the series, taking on the host nation after the first game between Ireland and Bangladesh was abandoned due to inclement weather. But they face a desperate Ireland team that will not have the upcoming World Cup to worry about, and will hope to redeem themselves after blowing a 327-run opening innings against the Windies, as CricBuzz recounted, in the “dead rubber” one-day international match that will live stream from the Dublin suburb of Clontarf.
