BAN vs IRE Betting Tips

  • Tamim Iqbal, the captain of the side, has been in phenomenal form with the bat. The opening-order southpaw has scored 234 runs in the previous 7 games and will be expected to give a good start to the Asian team. On the other hand, veteran Shakib Al Hasan has taken 15 wickets in his previous 6 games, bowling at an economy rate of under 5 runs per over.
  • Harry Tector has been the best batsman for Ireland as he has smashed 573 runs in his previous 10 games, batting an average of 95. Whereas Andy McBrine has gone on to take 15 wickets in the previous 9 games, bowling at an economy rate of under 4.6 runs per over. He could well be the leading wicket-taker for Ireland in the upcoming game as well.
  • Given the form Shakib has been in with the ball, we predict him to take over 2 wickets in the 1st ODI against Ireland.

BAN vs IRE 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After clean-sweeping, the reigning World Cup Champions - England in their previous T20 series, Bangladesh will now kick off their multi-format series against Ireland wherein the first ODI will take place at the Sylhet Cricket Stadium. With both teams trying to make a name for themselves in the 50-over format, let us take a detailed look at the predicted starting XI, weather, and pitch report amongst more.

As mentioned above Bangladesh is heading into this series, being full of confidence after beating England previously. Having already qualified for the 50-ver ICC World Cup in India this year, Bangladesh would want to justify its place with another dominant display.

On the other hand, Ireland has never won an ODI series against Bangladesh. Chasing a berth in the 50-over World Cup this year, Ireland would want to get some confidence under their belt. However, interestingly, at the Bangladesh home grounds, the spoken-off nation has never been able to defeat the hosts in ODIs.

BAN vs IRE Match Toss Prediction

The pitch at the Sylhet Cricket Stadium offers good help for the batsmen once when they settle in. Given the flat surface, the pacers could even get swing early on. However, the captain winning the toss is most likely to bat first.

BAN vs IRE, Sylhet International Cricket Stadium Pitch Report

Batsmen will be licking their fingers as the venue will allow them to score big. On the other hand, this is not a happy hunting ground for slow bowlers, especially medium-pace bowlers.

Sylhet Weather Report

Humidity is going to peak at 95% whereas the temperature will be around 21 to 25 degrees during the match hours with no signs of rain interrupting the game.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

This team has rested Mahmudullah for the first two ODI whereas Yasir Ali, Nasum Ahmed, and Shoriful Islam have all returned for national duty.

BAN Key Players

  • Shakib Al Hasan - Being the most experienced player in this country, Shakib will be expected to lead the team with the ball in the middle overs in search of getting wickets in the middle overs.
  • Tamim Iqbal - Given that the opening batsman has showcased his skillset in different T20 leagues before heading into this multi-format series, Iqbal will hope to lead the Tigers to the best possible start.
  • Najmul Hossain Shanto - Having scored 144 runs in the 3 games against England, this Bangladesh International star has the potential to cause havoc since the early overs.

BAN Team Form

Although Bangladesh beat England 3-0 in the T20 series, they went 1-2 in the ODI. For the same reason, they would want to register a potential series win against their name.

IRE Team News

With no major injuries or absentees affecting the Ireland Cricket Team, they are expected to start their strongest known XI since the 1st ODI.

IRE Key Players

  • Harry Tector - Given the potential and attacking instinct of this 23-year-old middle-order batsman, Tector provides immense stability to the entire Irish batting lineup.
  • Paul Stirling -: Although he has averaged 36 runs per game in his previous 6 showdowns, Stirling’s contribution at the top of the batting order is key in setting the momentum for this team.
  • Mark Adair - Bowling at an economy of under 5 runs per over in his previous 9 games, Adair has registered 12 wickets in the mentioned number of games.

IRE Team Form

Ireland heads into this ODI after avoiding defeat in their previous 2 showdowns. In their previous ODI series against Zimbabwe, the former team went 1-1.

Who will win Bangladesh vs Ireland 1st ODI Match?

Bangladesh is obviously the favorite heading into this contest. Given how multiple batsmen of the former team have been in splendid form, there is no doubt that we could be in for a one-sided contest.

BAN vs IRE Top Team Batsmen

Tamim Iqbal, Litton Das, and Najmul Hossain Shanto are undoubtedly the best batting picks from the Bangladesh lineup. While Iqbal and Litton will be opening the batting order, their counter-attacking skill can most likely lead them to score a big score against a relatively inexperienced bowling unit. Whereas Shanto will be eager to get some quality scorers under his belt before the ultimate World Cup stage in India later this year.

Harry Tector, Gareth Delany, and Paul Stirling are our suggest batting picks from the Ireland lineup. Tector has scored more than 570 runs in his last 10 encounters, and Stirling, too, has been in fine form, scoring over 290 runs in his last 9 games.

BAN vs IRE Top Team Bowlers

Shakib Al Hasan, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, and Taskin Ahmed are our suggest bowling picks from the Banglesh predicted lineup. While Shakib has recently shown his good forms with the ball in PSL and BPL 2023, Hasan Miraz took 4 wickets in the 2 matches he played against England previously. Lastly, Taskin does have the ability to take some early wickets at this venue, using his swing and raw pace.

Mark Adair, Andy McBrine, and Fion Hand should be your picks from the bowling department of Ireland. Both McBrine and Adair have taken more than 11 wickets in the previous 9 games respectively whereas Fionn has the potential to be the x-factor for this spoken-off team in the first ODI in Sylhet.

Bangladesh vs Ireland Prediction

We predict Bangladesh to win in a dominant fashion against Ireland in the first ODI. Given that the Asian team has plenty to prove before the start of the ICC 50-over World Cup, and is itching to showcase their caliber on the international stage, this ODI series against Ireland could be their perfect opportunity to do so. Moreover, with Najmul Hossain, Shakib, and Tamim all being in good form, Ireland will have to impose early pressure if they are to cause an upset.
