Ireland are about to confirm that they will play three ODIs in Bangladesh in March, according to a report in the Belfast Telegraph.

The games will come on the tail of Ireland’s Intercontinental Cup match against UAE in Abu Dhabi and while in Bangladesh they will play a four-day match followed by a couple of one-day warm-ups and then the three ODIs.

I predict that the last two of the three match series will be very much competitive. So, I really would like to watch the series of these two uprising teams in a regular and home and away basis. I don't know whether Irish has invited Bangladesh at their home or not, but I wish that they will do so in a regular basis. Which will benefit both the teams strongly to play different condition every year and by that I hope they could become competitive teams in ODI and Ireland can get the test status quickly. Best of luck to both the teams for their better future. Our Love and Salute to Bangladesh. Trento, Italy.

Ireland are a good team and had a good world cup. Bangladesh should have won the game in the world cup against the Irish. Although the Irish will put up a fight, i expect the tigers to come out victorious. Joy Bangla!

Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
