Bangladesh thump Ireland in their biggest ODI win margin
Shakib Al Hasan and debutant Towhid Hridoy shone after seamer Ebadot Hossain propelled Bangladesh to a rampant 183-run victory against Ireland in the first ODI to register their biggest win in the format.
Shakib (93) and Hridoy (92) paired in a striking 135-run stand for the fourth wicket before a quickfire 26-ball 44 by Mushfiqur Rahim pushed Bangladesh to the huge total at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium on Saturday.
The Irish team got off to a decent start in their chase with a 60-run opening stand but then lost five wickets in 16 runs in a spectacular batting collapse as the Tigers’ continued their fine form following the triumph over world champions England in T20s.
