Another day, another big win for Bangladesh. The hosts rattled Ireland in the second T20I to take an unassailable lead in the series. Bangladesh have now won five T20Is on the trot, beating England 3-0 and then winning the first two games against Ireland. The margin of the wins has been mammoth which shows that the Tigers have been very dominant.
There is not a lot of positive news for Ireland as the team has fallen face down in front of Bangladesh. It will need a miracle for Ireland to pull one back and end the T20I series on a high. Bangladesh are firm favourites to win the match.
The surface has been good for batting which is evident from the fact that Bangladesh have posted two 200+ score in two games.
Rain curtailed the second T20I to 17 overs and the weather forecast for the third T20I is not promising either with a 50 per cent chance of rain.

Ireland have found it hard against Bangladesh in T20is with just one win to their name.

Shakib Al Hasan proved his credentials as a match-winner with a brilliant performance in the second T20I. Shakib scored 38 runs and picked five wickets to lead his team to a 77-run win.
After slamming 67 in the first game, Talukdar looked good in the second match as well, playing a brutal knock of 44 in just 23 balls, to lay a solid platform for the Bangladesh middle-order batters. He looks a strong player for Bangladesh in the long run.
Veteran Litton Das has also been magnificent in the T20I series. He scored 47 in the first T20I before playing a magnificent knock of 83 in just 41 balls to suck life out of the Irish bowlers. When on song, Das is very hard to stop.
Unfortunately for Ireland, there are not a lot of positives. The players have looked clueless against the Bangladesh bowlers. If there is one player who can turn the tables for Ireland, it is their most experienced batter, Paul Stirling.
Taskin Ahmed has been very good with the ball for Bangladesh in the last few years. Taskin continued his good run in the second T20I and went on to pick up 3 wickets.
