In the last league stage match of the ongoing Tri-Nation Series, hosts Ireland posted a big total of 292 for 8 in 50 overs against finalist Bangladesh at Castle Avenue, Dublin on Wednesday, reports UNB.
Abu Jayed Rahi, the right-arm pacer of Bangladesh, bagged his maiden five-wicket haul in his 2nd ODI appearance conceding 58 runs in nine overs.
Earlier, Ireland won the toss and decided to bat first but they failed to make an impressive start as they lost the first wicket in just 23 runs, but they made comfortable the total of 292 runs, featuring 118 runs in the 3rd wicket stand by centurion Paul Stirling and captain William Porterfield.
James McCollum was the first man to get dismissed. The ball was outside off-stump, and McCollum went to drive it through the cover area but he failed to execute it properly.
