Commentary (Bangladesh innings)

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.

A slip comes in.

21.1 S Thompson to T Iqbal, Shout for an lbw! Full in length and just around off, Tamim lunges with his bat and pad together in defense. It hit the latter and they appeal. Nothing from the umpire, maybe the impact was outside off. 107/4

In case you don't know, Mashrafe Mortaza is serving a one-match ban because of the slow-over rate in his last ODI appearance.

11.1 B McCarthy to M Rahim, OUT! Gone, Rahim edges this one to first slip. McCarthy bowls it a little outside off, gets a bit of away shape and Rahim goes for an expansive drive on the up.

Mushfiqur Rahim is in next. He is a little fighter and has the technique to succeed in these conditions. Bangladesh need him to stabilize the innings along with the another senior partner, Tamim Iqbal.

3.2 P Chase to S Rahman, OUT! Sabbir has thrown it away! Poor, very poor shot selection from him. Ran out of patience too soon, just the third ball he faced. Chase angles in a length ball around off, Rahman gives the charge with the intention to heave it over mid-wicket but it takes the top edge and goes straight up in the air towards third man. Tim Murtagh runs in and across a bit to his right and grabs a fantastic tumbling catch. Bangladesh struggling! 9/2

1.6 P Chase to S Rahman, Snorter! Welcome to the crease, Sabbir. Chase bends his back and bangs in a short ball around off, Rahman is taken by surprise as he tries to fend it away. Takes a blow on his helmet in the process but no harm done, fortunately. A nasty welcome to the new batsman. 8/1

Sabbir Rahman is the new batsman at number 3.

1.5 P Chase to S Sarkar, OUT! Sarkar 'Chased' out of the ground! Brilliant delivery, on back of a length around off and moving away a shade off the seam, Sarkar has a tame push inside the line without any footwork and gets a thin outside edge behind to the keeper. Niall O'Brien makes no mistake, they appeal and the finger goes up. Excellent start for Ireland. 8/1

A little bit of sawdust applied on the bowler's landing area.
