Ireland captain Andrew Balbirnie won the toss and send Bangladesh to bat first in the second match of the three-match series at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Monday (March 20).
Bangladesh won the first match with quite ease and if their recent form and strength are anything to go by, Bangladesh are on course for another comprehensive victory to seal the series with a match to spare.
Bangladesh had won by a record 183 runs after having posted a record 338 runs in the first match.
Bangladesh rested Mustafizur Rahman as Hasan Mahmud took his place. Debut for Mathew Humphreys who replaces Gareth Delaney.
