The Big Picture
After sealing the T20 series 2-0 with back-to-back comfortable wins, Sunday will see Ireland Women vs Bangladesh Women in the third and final T20. While Bangladesh Women will aim for a clean sweep, the hosts would want to salvage some lost pride by putting up a spirited show in the final match.
Ireland Women vs Bangladesh Women| The story so far
It was a similar story for the hosts in the last Ireland Women vs Bangladesh Women encounter. Just like the first T20, Ireland batted first and apart from Cecelia Joyce’s 47-ball-60 and Laura Delany’s 20, no other batsman could offer substantial support against Nahida Akhter (2-18) and Jahanara Alam’s 2-15, to scrap to an underwhelming 8-124 in 20 overs.
Unlike the first T20, Bangladesh Women had a solid contribution at the top as wicket-keeper Shamima Sultana scored a 49-ball-51 to set-up the chase, and despite a middle-order meltdown in the wake of some inspired Irish bowling (Metcalfe 2-26, Delany 2-21), Fargana Hoque (34-ball-36) held her own to lead his team to a four-wicket win. While the series may have been decided, IR-W vs BD-W 3rd T20 offers a chance for both sides to try some new players as a build-up to the impending WT20 qualifiers next month.
