Bangladesh host Ireland for one-day series

Will Luke

Ireland are to tour Bangladesh for three one-dayers next March and April.

Ireland, who in addition to beating Pakistan in that memorable World Cup match earlier in the year also defeated Bangladesh, will also play two four-day warm-ups against local teams.

"As we are not yet in the ICC's Future Tours Programme, we have to look for matches against the teams close to us in the ODI rankings, such as Zimbabwe, Kenya, West Indies and Bangladesh," Warren Deutrom, the Ireland Cricket Union's chief executive told Cricket Europe.

The tour gets underway from March 16.

Excellent stuff - the Bengal Tigers versus the Celtic Tigers again! I guess Bangladesh are spoiling for some revenge. : )

Will Luke
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
