IRE vs Ban, Dublin

Bangladesh won by 6 wkts

Ban - 294/4 (43 Ovs)
IRE - 292/8 (50 Ovs)

So, it proved to a stroll in the park for Bangladesh. The calmness with which they chased it down depicts how mature they have become off late especially as an ODI team. The league stage is over and we are all set for a mouth-watering final between Bangladesh and West Indies. Bangladesh have defeated them twice in the tournament. But you can trust West Indies to bring their 'A' game to the fore for a big match. Do join us for that, until then this is Varun Dixit signing off on behalf of Vineet, Hariprasad and Harish. Good Bye and take care!

Mashrafe Mortaza: We knew 300 was ok to chase it down. In the bowling, Abu was brilliant. And our batting was really good especially the top-order. We have won three matches in the series and we are confident about the final.

William Porterfield: Nice to spend some time in the middle but disappointed that it ended in a defeat. Bangladesh are looking very strong for the World Cup. We play Afghanistan every season now so we know what to expect from them.

Abu Jayed is the Player of the Match!

18:07 Local Time, 17:07 GMT, 22:37 IST: A comfortable chase for Bangladesh then. The openers, Tamim and Liton laid the platform with 117-run partnership. Once Tamim departed, Shakib took the responsibility. He scored a fifty too and then retired due to side strain. By that time Bangladesh had almost wrapped up the game. It was a mere formality and the calming presence of Mahmudullah ensured that the Asian country achieved the target without much fuss. The opener Liton Das was the highest scorer for the visitors with 76 off 67 balls. And for Ireland, Boyd Rankin picked up a couple of wickets. Hang on for the presentations.

41.2 Dockrell to Sabbir Rahman, no run, oh! How did that miss the stump? It was a flighted one again, Sabbir Rahman wanted to block it down. It clipped the inside edge and came back in the direction of the stumps. It missed the stumps just by a whisker!
