BAN vs IRE Betting Tips

  • Najmul Hossain Shanto was dismissed only once across the IT20 series against England. He is our pick for Bangladesh’s highest run scorer in this game. Taskin Ahmed has taken 40 wickets in this format and the pace bowler is well worth backing as Bangladesh’s top wicket taker against Ireland.
  • Paul Stirling has a top score of 115 not out in this format and the right-handed opener is a strong choice for Ireland’s highest run scorer against Bangladesh. Graham Hume finished as the top wicket taker across both sides in the ODIs and he is our tip for Ireland’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • There is no other batter in Bangladesh in such good form as Najmul Hossain Shanto. We recommend backing him to hit over 31.5 runs in this IT20.

BAN vs IRE 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After a one-sided three-match ODI series finished 2-0 to Bangladesh, the Tigers begin a three-match IT20 series against Ireland in Chittagong on Monday. Bangladesh beat England 3-0 in a home series in this format earlier this month, whereas Ireland lost 2-1 in Zimbabwe in January. Read on as we preview this series opener. This game gets underway at 14:00 local time.

The conditions in Bangladesh are quite unique with some pace in the wicket but a low bounce and the hosts are experts at playing in them. They were far too strong for Ireland in the ODIs and we expect more of the same.

Ireland do not have their first choice team available but do still have a strong squad. However, they are up against a very good and in-form Bangladesh side who are extremely consistent in home conditions.

BAN vs IRE Match Toss Prediction

The last three IT20s have been won by the team batting second at this venue. We predict that both skippers will want to field first if they win the toss.

BAN vs IRE, Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium Pitch Report

The ball is most likely to skid through on this surface as opposed to bounce high. We expect turn for the spinners and a par score no higher than 155.

Chattogram Weather Report

It will be partly cloudy and very humid across Monday afternoon in Chittagong. However, no rain is forecast during this opening IT20.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

Alan Donald’s side have been growing in confidence as the victories have come thick and fast in white ball internationals this month. There are no injury worries in the squad and their knowledge of the home conditions will also be crucial in this match.

BAN Key Players

  • Najmul Hossain Shanto- the left-handed top order batter is in the form of his life. Against England he hit 51, 46 not out and 47 not out in this format earlier in the month.
  • Shakib Al Hasan- the skipper is one of the best left-arm spinners in T20 cricket and very rarely goes for many runs. He is also a very useful batter in all formats and hit 93 against Ireland in the opening ODI.
  • Taskin Ahmed- the right arm pace bowler has been in excellent form against Ireland and England. He picked up five wickets from two innings against Ireland in the ODIs.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh have been in excellent form across all formats and are looking for their fourth successive victory in IT20s after thrashing England 3-0.

Ireland Team News & Playing 11

IRE Team News

With Barry McCarthy injured and Josh Little unavailable for this tour, Ireland will again be slightly under-strength in the bowling department in this game. However, with the bat, it will be interesting to see how the attacking pair of Paul Stirling and Ross Adair get on opening together at this level for the first time.

IRE Key Players

  • Paul Stirling- the opener has a good record in the shortest format and has played in nearly all of the top T20 leagues. He is a very attacking player.
  • Lorcan Tucker- the 26 year old keeper-batter has hit all five of his IT20 half-centuries over the last 16 months. His top score in this format is 84.
  • Graham Hume- the right-arm fast medium bowler was the only player in the Irish bowling attack to emerge from the ODI series with any credit. He will have the most confidence with the ball in the Ireland squad ahead of this game.

IRE Team Form

Since beating eventual winners England in the 2022 T20 World Cup, Ireland have won only one of their next six IT20s.

Who will win Bangladesh vs Ireland 1st T20 Match?

Although Ireland are without some of their top bowlers, their batters should be able to make more of an impact in this shorter format. However, Bangladesh’s players are brilliant in these conditions and are in excellent form.

BAN vs IRE Top Team Batsmen

We recommend Najmul Hossain Shanto, Litton Das and Towhid Hridoy with the bat for Bangladesh. Das hit 120 runs against Ireland in the last two ODIs and his confidence will be very high in this match. Hridoy made his international debut earlier this month and will want to make a big score to secure his place in the IT20 side.

Paul Stirling, Andy Balbirnie and Lorcan Tucker are our batting tips for Ireland. Balbirnie captains the team and has scored eight half-centuries in IT20 cricket. Tucker hit 71 not out against Australia in the T20 World Cup and is a fine batter.

BAN vs IRE Top Team Bowlers

Taskin Ahmed, Shakib Al Hasan and Shoriful Islam are our Bangladesh bowling choices. Islam has best figures in IT20s of 3-21 and bowls with real pace. Only Tim Southee has taken more IT20 wickets than Shakib who needs three wickets to go level with the New Zealander.

We are backing Graham Hume, Curtis Campher and Mark Adair as our bowling tips for Ireland. Campher has best IT20 figures of 4-25 and bowls a very tight line. Adair has taken 140 international wickets in his career with 80 coming in IT20s.

🏆 Bangladesh vs Ireland Prediction

Even with their first choice bowling attack, it would be a very tough prospect for Ireland to travel to Bangladesh and win an IT20 series. We are expecting a low-scoring game with boundaries particularly hard to hit as the ball softens in the final five overs of an innings. With their confidence at a very high level, we expect Bangladesh to be the better team with bat and ball. Overall, we are predicting a convincing victory for Bangladesh.
