For Bangladesh, it will be a three-match ODI assignment against Ireland next. This series will start on 19th March. All the matches in the ODI series will happen in Sylhet. Here, we look at the pitch report of Sylhet International Cricket Stadium and the weather conditions in Sylhet for BAN vs IRE 2023.
Bangladesh‘s recent success against England has given them a lot of confidence. Considering it is the ODI World Cup year, it will be a massive boost to them. On their day, the team has quite a few match-winners and could defeat any squad. Especially on the subcontinent, Bangladesh can never be neglected. Yes, Ireland will pose a challenge but the hosts will be the favourites. For Ireland, though, it would be a good learning curve against a side in form. This will help them in the future tournaments in the subcontinent.
